Marriott Vacations Worldwide, a pioneer in leisure travel with a portfolio of renowned, internationally known travel brands and vacation clubs, is introducing Abound by Marriott VacationsTM (“Abound”), a new owner benefit and exchange program set to launch this summer.
With leisure travel expenditure estimated to exceed $1.7 trillion by 2027*, the new program is launching at an appropriate moment. It’s intended to provide new places, brands, and alternatives to enhance vacationing for all travelers, particularly millennials, who rank travel as a top aspiration** and account for more than a quarter of the company’s first-time vacation ownership customers.
Abound by Marriott Vacations gives access to over 90 vacation club resorts from Marriott Vacation Club®, Sheraton® Vacation Club, and Westin® Vacation Club. In addition, there is access to over 8,000 Marriott Bonvoy hotels, 2,000 vacation homes, and 2,000 unique experiences such as cruises, guided and culinary tours, premiere events, outdoor adventures, and more, all with the option to exchange through Interval International, a leading exchange partner.

Geller, Jr., President of Marriott Vacations Worldwide.
The firm is releasing a film to help develop the sense of anticipation and excitement that comes with planning an exceptional holiday, with summer and the formal debut of Abound just around the horizon.
While each Abound resort and city property has its personality and feeling of place, they all work together to give visitors a diverse range of activities and experiences they value as part of their life experience.
