NASHVILLE, Tenn., June 9, 2015 – 3RD HOME, the leading reciprocal travel club for the luxury vacation homeowner and The Quintess Collection, the premier private luxury vacation club for discerning travelers today announced a partnership that will bring more benefits to members of both clubs. 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 3,500+ properties around the world.
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.”
Created by Founder and CEO Wade Shealy, 3RD HOME enables second home owners to explore new destinations, while providing a safe and trustworthy way to expand the use of their second homes. Second home owners no longer need to travel to the same destination to justify their investment when they prefer to be somewhere else. By depositing unused weeks at their second homes into the club, members earn 3RD HOME keys, which can be used as currency to immediately reserve a stay in any other available property at any time.
About 3RD HOME
3RD HOME is a pioneering private club for the owners of luxury second homes. 3RD HOME enables second home owners to travel the world and stay in premier properties without the expense of renting. Unlike traditional home exchanges, 3RD HOME does not require a direct or simultaneous exchange with another member. 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. Prospective members are pre-screened for home quality and members provide unbiased comprehensive ratings and feedback on their host and guest experiences in order to ensure the highest quality of both members and their residences. 3RD HOME facilitates a reliable and safe exchange process through a seamless internet platform, providing sophisticated travelers with unmatched experiences.
