Your Easturia Vacation Club Membership Term
If you own a Pearl Membership, you are entitled to a fixed number of nights entitlement of 7/4/3 nights each anniversary year (depending on whether your membership type is under Family, Couple or Single respectively and whether it’s a Full Term or alternate year membership). This will be for a term of Thirty (30) years, or a term that expires on a date which is Sixty (60) years from the date of the Trust Deed, whichever is earlier, starting from the Commencement Date.
If you own a Ruby membership, you are entitled to a fixed number of nights entitlement of 7/4/3 nights each anniversary year (depending on whether your membership type is under Family, Couple or Single respectively and whether it is a Full Term or alternate year membership) for a term of Thirty (30) years or a term that expires on 12 April 2045, whichever is earlier, starting from the Commencement Date.
Your Entitlement – What We Promise You
Depending on your membership type, an Entitlement is a floating period of three (3), four (4) or seven (7) nights, given to a member, every year or alternate year, for the duration of the Term, from the Commencement Date as defined in the Membership Agreement.
The Entitlement to use the accommodation units will be based on “Period of Entitlement” (POE) and on an “Anniversary Year” basis. You have a period of twelve (12) months or 365 days during each Entitlement in which to use your Entitlement (commencing on the date of your respective Membership Agreement and thereafter on yearly or alternate yearly anniversary dates, depending on the type of membership owned).
Here’s an example:
If your Membership Agreement is dated 31 August 2011, your 2011 Period of Entitlement shall be between 31 August 2011 and 30 August 2012. So, if you’re entitled to 3 days, you can use those days at anytime within those dates.
Your Entitlement – How To Benefit From It
Your Entitlement is valid for one (1) year from its commencement date, which is referred to as an “Anniversary Year”. You are encouraged to use up your entitlement within your current Period of Entitlement (POE) as any unused entitlement will be forfeited when Period of Entitlement expires. If this happens, you will not be reimbursed or indemnified if your Entitlement is not utilized.
Your entitlement is on “floating time” as such you are allowed to use the accommodation or reserve for any time during the validity period however confirmation of reservation is not guaranteed but is always subject to availability.
Accrual of Entitlement – How You Can Benefit From Accumulating Your Vacation Time
You can carry forward all or part of your entitlement in the preceding Period of Entitlement to be used in the current Period of Entitlement. If you choose to do so, the Club Rule, Membership Agreement and the following conditions apply:
- i. Utilisation of accrued Entitlement is subject to availability of accommodation chosen;
- ii. The Annual Maintenance Fee for the preceding and current Period of Entitlement must be fully settled;
- iii. Accrual of Entitlement is allowed for one (1) Period of Entitlement only. Any unused accrued Entitlement will be forfeited when the current Period of Entitlement expires.
Here’s how it works:
Full Term Membership
Unutilized Entitlement for Period of Entitlement (POE) 2011 (Year 1):18 Jun 2011-17 June 2012 can be carried forward to 2012 POE 2 (Year 2): 18 Jun 2012-17 Jun 2013. Any unutilized Entitlement from Year 1 shall expire by the end of Year 2, after 17 Jun 2013.
Alternate Year Membership
Unutilized Entitlement for 2011 POE 1 (Year 1): 18 Jun 2011-17 Jun 2012 can be carried forward to 2013 POE 2 (Year 3): 18 Jun 2013-17 Jun 2014. Any unutilized Entitlement from Year 1 shall expire by the end of Year 3, after 17 Jun 2014.
Advance of Entitlement – Using Your Future Vacation Time
You are allowed to advance from up to 3 future Periods of Entitlements to be used in the current Period of Entitlement. The Club Rule, Membership Agreement and the following conditions apply:
- i. Utilization of the Advance Entitlement is subject to availability of accommodation chosen.
- ii. The Annual Maintenance Fee for the current and advance Periods of Entitlements must be fully settled.
- iii. The Advance Entitlement must be in blocks of seven (7) nights (Family membership), four (4) nights (Couple membership) or three (3) nights (Single membership) of the future annual Entitlement. Partial advancements are not allowed.
- iv. The Advance shall have the same validity as the current Period of Entitlement and may be carried forward to the next Period of Entitlement.
- v. Installment payments must be paid in the following amounts:-
Using up your Advance Entitlement means you will have no Entitlement left for the next Period of Entitlement.
Any unutilized advance Entitlement can be accrued to be used before the expiry of the next Period of Entitlement immediately after the unused current Period of Entitlement. If still unutilized by the end of the next Period of Entitlement, it is forfeited.
Splitting Your Entitlement
Our Split Week Facility allows you to utilize your Entitlement at different periods. So instead of using it up in blocks of 7 nights (Family), 4 nights (Couple) or 3 night (Single) during the Period of Entitlement, you can now use it f different times during the Year.
