The vacation club

Going abroad for a holiday can be pretty expensive and is not everyone's cup of tea. Now what if there was an option of going abroad at a relatively cheaper cost by exchanging one of your local vacation packages?

Bengal Vacation Club, founded on July 29, 2010 and the project facilitator of Sea Pearl Beach Resort and Spa Limited in Inani, Cox's Bazar, has brought this unique opportunity of exchanging a local vacation package for a nominal fee to avail a vacation package abroad at about 80% discount.

The only vacation club in Bangladesh, it is affiliated with the renowned and prestigious vacation network comprising of 2500 resorts in 75 countries worldwide called Interval International. Those who will buy a vacation ownership (valid for up to 25 years) from Bengal Vacation Club can ensure future vacation packages at the current market price which means you will be saving money compared to an expensive future purchase due to inflation rise. This vacation ownership will allow you to spend a week-long vacation free every year at Sea Pearl Beach Resort in Cox's Bazar.

In case you want to go abroad for a vacation, you can choose to deposit your local vacation package in the “vacation pool” of Interval International and pick one other vacation package of your choice at any other destination covered by Interval International from the pool.

As you exchange your local vacation deal for a foreign one listed on Interval International, you can enjoy a weeklong vacation at the same local vacation cost added with a nominal exchange fee. For Asian vacations, the fee is currently $118 and for destinations outside Asia, it will cost $158; also a guest certificate can be purchased at only $49 to avail some extra benefits. So with some added cost, you can enjoy a weeklong foreign holiday at a little over the cost of your local holiday package. These added costs will entitle you to avail some great services, for details of which you can contact the Bengal Vacation Club.

“It's simple! You have to purchase a club membership which starts as low as Taka 4.16 lakh. This membership will come with your own yearly 7 days vacation ownership that you can use at Sea Pearl Beach Resort or for foreign holidays via Interval International along with the exciting features on offer,” ASM Jurrat Hossain, General Manager, Sales & Marketing, Bengal Vacation Club tells us and explains further, “Suppose a local 5 star hotel or resort can charge as low as Tk.6000 for a single room per day. So for a weeklong stay, it will cost Tk.42000, and using this weeklong stay for up to 25 years will yield Taka 10.5 lakh without calculating inflation rate. Over here, we are allowing you to avail the same service at a rate of only Taka 4.16 lakh which is a good investment that also comes with the added benefit of letting you go abroad for a 7 days vacation in whichever year you want.”

Suppose you have a vacation ownership of Bengal Vacation club which you don't want to keep, you can decide to sell or rent it off to some other person or you can choose to present it as a gift or include it in your will for your loved ones.
