A floating week is when you purchase a nonspecific week at your resort within a range of dates or season, say between the beginning of December and the end of February March – June etc. So instead of owning that first week of December, you would own “a week” that you would need to use sometime during the entire winter season. The upside is that if you can’t make it on a certain date, you could now have the flexibility to choose a different date.
In a Floating/Flexible system, as described above, a “fixed week” is acquired, then deposited into a “pool” of other Timeshares and consumers could choose the resort, the accommodation and in the period, they prefer and from the “pooled inventory” if availability existed. Thus, the right floating/flexible and are classed as a “floating rights”.
The downside is that accommodations are reserved on a first come, first serve basis. And more often than not, the good times go quick. So you’ll have to plan far in advance to get the week you want, or risk losing out.
