These two clubs are collaborating to expand the portfolio of multimillion-dollar residences accessible to each membership. In outline the two clubs are making some of their homes available to members of the other club.

3RD HOME is one of the largest reciprocal travel clubs. Its members own 3,500+ luxury vacation homes around the world. By making available weeks of time in their own second home for other members' use, members earn 3RD HOME Keys that can be used as currency to immediately reserve a stay at other 3RD HOME properties.

The Quintess Collection, founded in 2004, is one of the largest destination clubs. It provides exclusive access to an international portfolio of luxury residences and adventures in some of the world's most sought-after destinations.

Through this exclusive collaboration, 3RD HOME members will be invited to deposit weeks in their homes in exchange for access to Quintess' portfolio of multimillion-dollar luxury residences across the globe. Similarly, Quintess members will have the ability to use their nights for a stay at any of 3RD HOME's properties.

This new collaboration will allow both 3RD HOME and Quintess Collection members to explore and experience new places – from a private beach villa in Los Cabos to a rustic cabin escape in Jackson Hole – while enjoying the services and benefits of each without becoming a member. Through this combination of select inventory, members will be able to expand their travel experiences to destinations and times offered by each luxury travel club.

"Our affiliation with The Quintess Collection will add coveted premium travel opportunities to our existing offerings," says Steve Zacks, chief marketing officer of 3RD HOME. "We are thrilled to be able to offer weeks at this high-end collection of residences to our multimillion-dollar vacation home owners, as well as providing Quintess Collection members with access to our diverse portfolio of homes."

"We're excited to bring 3RD HOME members a new world of travel opportunities and offer our members access to amazing private residences through the 3RD HOME network," says Paul Davis, founder and senior vice president, corporate development of The Quintess Collection. "We look forward to welcoming 3RD HOME members to our unique portfolio of residences and exemplary onsite services around the globe."

Partnerships like this make a lot of sense for all concerned, and many of the destination clubs have similar reciprocal partnerships with other clubs. 3RD HOME also has a partnership with the Ritz-Carlton Destination Club and has also partnered with several private residence clubs. In each case they open up more residences and travel locations to each clubs members.
