Vacation Credits – What’s your Type?


Have you got Vacation Credits in your account that have ‘WMTS’, ‘WM’ or ‘WMA’ and every time you see it you’ve questioned ‘What does that really mean?’


If you want to talk to an expert regarding your Ownership then why not also attend one of our Online Conference Calls with other WorldMark Owners? They are fun and interactive; they are also good if you want a refresher on the basics. Head to and register today!


Well, Guess what!

I’m going to help you discover the meaning behind each different Vacation Credit type.

Within the WorldMark Club there are actually four different Vacation Credit Types used in exchange for reserving rooms. All types of Vacation Credits will have the same equal value however what you can do with those Vacation Credits will differ.

The four Vacation Credit Types are:

  1. WMTS Privileges Qualified Credits
  2. WM Credits
  3. Incentive Credits
  4. WMA Credits

Firstly, let’s talk about WMTS Privileges Qualified Credits.

Did you sign up at one of our Sales Sites in Australia, Fiji or New Zealand and purchase the Privileges entitlements as part of your package?

Well, you’re going to be an Owner with WMTS Privileges Qualified Credits. These are the most common Vacation Credits for a WorldMark Owner to receive. These Vacation Credits mean that you are qualified for a Privileges membership and all of the benefits involved in your particular level of membership.

With WMTS Privileges Qualified Credits you can use these Vacation Credits towards a variety of different benefits within the Ownership. Such as:

  • WorldMark South Pacific Club Properties
  •  Associate Resorts
  • WorldMark, The Club (North American Properties)
  • RCI
  • ICE Vacations (Unless WMTS Privileges Qualified Credits are expiring within 6 months)
  • Wyndham Rewards
  • Privileges Offer’s that are relevant to a WorldMark Owner’s individual tier level
  • GRAB IT’s (Unless Credits are expiring within 90 days)

Did you sign up to the WorldMark South Pacific Club after 1st May 2010 but didn’t opt in for a Privileges by Wyndham membership?

Well. Let’s talk more about the second type of Vacation Credits which are known as WM Credits.

Below are the following benefits that you can use:

  •  WorldMark South Pacific Club Resorts
  •  RCI Spacebanking and Confirm First
  •  ICE Vacations (Unless WM Credits are expiring within 6 months)
  •  GRAB IT’S (Unless expiring within 90-45 days)
  • Interval International Deposits
  • WorldMark To/From
  • Privileges Holiday Extras
  • GRAB IT’s (Unless expiring within 90 days)
  • Associate Resorts
  • Apollo Motorhomes

You may notice that this type of Vacation Credit does not have access to WorldMark, The Club (North American properties). If you are not a Privileges member and you purchased your Credits after the 1st May 2010 then you will not have access to WorldMark, The Club.

To access WorldMark, The Club properties you must be a Privileges member if you’ve purchased your Credits after the 1st May 2010.

So did you purchase your Credits prior to 1st May 2010 and didn’t opt in for Privileges?

You will see WMA Credits when you look in your account.  With these Credits you have access to all the above benefits mentioned in WM Credits plus you can use your WMA Credits with WorldMark, The Club!

The reason for this is because this was part of the Exchange Network Agreement which is an agreement that was made between Asia Pacific and its parent company, Wyndham Resort Development Corporation. This agreement was then altered after the 1st May 2010.

Did you attend a presentation at one of our Sales Sites but decided it wasn’t the right time for you?

Well, Trial WM Credits are for those who were once a Discovery by Wyndham member before becoming a WorldMark South Pacific Club Owner. If these Trial Credits are converted over to a WorldMark South Pacific Club Ownership, they can be used on the WorldMark South Pacific Club Resorts as well as GRAB IT deals.

That brings me to the 3rd Credit Type.

Were you lucky enough to receive some Bonus credits as part of your purchase or upgrade?

During the life of a WorldMark South Pacific Club Owner, You may have been issued one off Incentives Credit’s. These Credits may be offered to you as a sales campaign, or an incentive for joining/upgrading the WorldMark South Pacific Club Ownership. They are known as Bonus/Incentive WM Credits and they can be used on the following benefits:

  • WorldMark South Pacific Club Resorts
  • RCI SpaceBanking and Confirm First
  • ICE Vacations (Unless WM Credits are expiring within 6 months)
  • Interval International Deposits
  • Privileges Holiday Extras
  • GRAB IT’S (Unless expiring within 90-45 days)

These Credits work differently to your Annual Vacation Credits and will have an expiry date of 12 months after they are activated onto your account.

Finally did you purchase your Credits from a friend or were you given them? Did you get them from another supplier other than the Developer which is Wyndham Vacation Resorts Asia Pacific?

These Credits will come under Trade WM Credits, and here in the office we talk about them as “second hand” Credits It’s important to note that these Credits will have limitation on what they can be used for. They can be used the same way as the Bonus/Incentive WM Credits above however they will not have access to Apollo Motorhomes or any Privileges benefits unless the Ownership is being transferred from your immediate family who has Privileges entitlements.

To turn your  ‘second hand’ Credits into Privileges Qualified Credits, an equal/greater amount of the number of Credits you wish to qualify must be purchased directly from the Developer after the second hand Credits have become active in your WorldMark South Pacific Club account. It’s important to note that the maximum amount of Vacation Credits that can be qualified in this method is 15,000 per single Ownership, for the life of that Ownership.
