The destination club has had a trial membership program for about a year. The latest version offers 7 days to try out the club.

Ultimate Escapes refers to their trial program as a "Discovery Membership" and offers them at each of their three club levels.

  Average Home Value7 Day Trial
Premiere Club$1m$3,500
Signature Club$2m$5,250
Elite Club$3m$7,000

If members join the club within 14 days of travel their Discovery Membership fee is applied to their full membership deposit.

Like the trial programs at other destination clubs, a trial with Ultimate includes all the services such as pre-trip planning and local concierges and you get to choose from all the homes in the Ultimate portfolio.

Robin Spindel, VP of Marketing at Ultimate Escapes said the club had so far sold about a dozen of these memberships in the first few weeks that they have been available and a couple of these folks have already traveled with the club.

Most of the major destination clubs have recently rolled out trial programs which offer a great way to try out the clubs if you're unsure membership is right for you. Here are more details on the Quintess trial, the A&K trial and the Exclusive Resorts trial.
