“It’s been an incredible year of growth,” said Jack Chevrier, vice president, staySky Vacation Clubs. “Member engagement is up, and we’re continuing to attract new members. As strong as this year has been, the future looks even brighter, as the company adds more offerings and value through new strategic partnerships and vendors to attract even more vacationers to our breakthrough program.”
Launched in June 2014, staySky Vacation Clubs offers a fresh approach to the vacation membership model. The points-based program provides superior vacations for active travelers in top destinations worldwide. Thanks to an array of creative partnerships, members enjoy ease, flexibility and a treasure trove of perks.
The value-rich program starts with four hotels in Orlando, Fla., America’s most visited destination. These family-friendly properties are minutes from world-class theme parks and attractions. The staySky portfolio includes the Lake Buena Vista Resort Village & Spa, a Walt Disney World Good Neighbor® hotel that ranked among TripAdvisor’s® 2014 Top 10 list of Best Hotels for Families in the United States.
Giving Members the World
As part of its commitment to enhancing value, staySky Vacation Clubs expands the reach, offering exclusive member benefits that span the globe. The result is a program that works double time to enrich not only the vacation experience, but members’ daily lives as well.
For example, staySky Vacation Club has affiliated its resorts with Interval International, the leading vacation ownership exchange network in the world. This association makes it easy for staySky members to vacation at nearly 3,000 resorts in more than 80 countries across the globe. Among other benefits, this affiliation gives staySky members access to more than 90,000 premium discounts for use at restaurants and retail locations.

In another enhancement of the vacation membership model, staySky Vacation Clubs members can choose the length of their stay. This benefit ties in with the latest travel trends that show travelers want vacations that fit their lifestyle and schedule, not according to a timeframe determined by the vacation provider.
“Our great reviews and high satisfaction ratings speak for themselves,” Chevrier said. “staySky’s innovative program delivers exciting new choices that are is in step with the times and changing economy. With a focus on exceptional value and flexibility, staySky Vacation Clubs speaks to the way people want to travel today.”
