About Elite Alliance

Top rated global fractional exchange program.

Elite Alliance is a vacation exchange program for owners of residence clubs and professionally managed vacation homes.

The exchange process allows you to turn your real estate ownership into travel adventures in over 65 destinations across the world including Hawaii, Argentina, and Mexico.

From ski trips to golf getaways and beach escapes, there is a growing portfolio of coveted destinations worldwide that Elite Alliance provides.

All properties in the Elite Alliance program have to meet premium standards of quality, service, and amenities. This gives them the ability to uphold their reputation no matter where you go on vacation.

They offer a diverse and expanding portfolio of extravagant residences in numerous exciting locations such as Cabo San Lucas in Mexico, Florence in Italy and London in the United Kingdom.

 Who is the Vacation Exchange Program For?

 Elite Alliance is for anyone who owns a luxury residence club or resort home that has been selected for participation.

What Types of Membership Are Available?

There are two types of membership.

  1. Premium Membership

 Premium Membership for Elite Alliance is the highest level. Members are given access to a large selection of privileges and benefits such as their ClubBenefits, powered by ClubCorp, which gives access to over 300+ private clubs throughout the portfolio across 24 different states and several foreign countries. The selection includes over 2,300 holes of golf, tennis paradises and business clubs in major metropolitan cities that offer countless business networking opportunities.

 

 

A Premium Membership is currently $659.00 for an annual membership.

  1. Core Membership

On the other hand, a Core Membership is slightly more limited, but still gives you access to an array of privileges including access to Elite Alliance’s Elite Escapes and The Marketplace. This is the basic membership level and is cheaper than a full Premium Membership. You can request future vacations, you will have access to an experienced team of travel experts, and there are referral bonuses for each friend or family member you invite to join.

A Core Membership is currently $495.00 per annum.

The main difference between the two membership types (aside from the cost) is access to ClubBenefits with the Premium Membership.

Depending on the vacation chosen, members may also need to pay for additional fees. These can include daily housekeeping fees, check-out fees, recreation access fees and other similar charges. Specific details about each location’s additional fees can be found on the Elite Alliance website.

How Does it Work?

First, prospective members sign up for a membership with one of two options: Premium or Core. You are required to have fractional ownership of a holiday resort or residence club to be eligible for an membership.

Once admitted as a member, you can then deposit your vacation and you will receive Elite Credits based on the type of property and location. Factors include the size of the property, the number of bedrooms, local amenities and services available.

Elite Credits are the main type of currency used and they can be purchased separately if needed. Money can also be used in place of Elite Credits for certain exchanges and Elite Escapes, but a minimum of 2 Elite Credits is required to accept a vacation at another residence.

Elite Escapes take place in incredible locations across the world and are available with forty-five (45) days notice. Elite Escapes do not require a vacation deposit, and it’s also possible to send unaccompanied guests such as friends, family or business clients.

Once the reservation has been confirmed, and the exchange fee is paid, the exchange is confirmed. Members can also cancel exchanges with written notices, but the exchange fee is non-refundable.

To search for destinations or find out what exchanges are available, members can simply log in to the Elite Alliance website. Details of locations are listed, and all available exchanges are shown with dates. If certain exchanges aren’t shown as available, then a future request can be made to reserve a spot.

Members are pleased with the amount of choice on offer, with some stating that they would never have discovered some locations if not for their membership. Every residence is meticulously reviewed before being added to the program, giving consistent quality all throughout.

Elite Alliance Escapes

What Are Elite Escapes?

Elite escapes are short-notice vacations that both core and premium members can participate in. These do not require a vacation deposit, and they can be made available with just forty-five (45) days notice before the vacation’s arrival.

Members can send unaccompanied guests such as friends, family and business clients on Elite Escapes, making it perfect for an impromptu holiday or treat for someone else.

How Do Escapes Differ from the Exchange Program?

Whereas Escapes are short-term holidays, the exchange program is designed for the exchange of luxury residences between members.

Clubs need to be accepted into Elite Alliance before being made available in the exchange program.This is to ensure that Elite Alliance can continue to uphold their brand standards.  Affiliation with clubs and resort homes is only offered to those who truly match their requirements.

Fractional Ownership

How Do You Become a Member?

As mentioned before, there are two main types of membership: Core Membership and Premium Membership.

To join, you must first have fractional ownership of a participating property. Once verified as an owner of a participating property, Elite Alliance automatically offers a two-year complimentary Core Membership. This enables you to make vacation deposits, exchanges, purchase Elite Escapes, have access to their professional travel coordination team, and participate in their Marketplace.

Prospective members can sign up via the website. You must choose which property you have fractional ownership of from their list. Then you must fill in an online form which involves detailing the type of residence you own, contract number (if available) and your details. Once all of your information is confirmed, customer support will then contact you to see if your application was successful or if further information is needed to confirm the property you own.

How Does Fractional Ownership Work?

Most fractional ownership is sold through a residence club or vacation resort. In most cases, a fractional ownership entitles you full access to the holiday property on certain weeks that are chosen by you. It’s much cheaper than outright buying a holiday property and allows you to take advantage of comforts and luxuries offered by the resort or club, such as housekeeping and maintenance.

With the EA exchange program, you inform EA of which properties you own during which periods and, once admitted as a member, you can temporarily exchange your fractional ownership with other members.
