What Are Resort Vacation Certificates?


Quick Answer

A Resort Vacation Certificate allows a recipient to book a seven-night stay at an affiliated resort. These certificates are designed for off-season travel and come with various booking restrictions. Recipients enter a certificate number to view the available options and then click the "Book" button to provide guest information and confirm the reservation. No payment is necessary unless the guest chooses to upgrade the accommodations for a fee.

Most Resort Vacation Certificates are redeemable for a one-year period, although the booking windows vary. For example, some certificates allow for a 12-month booking window, while others allow for only a 30-day booking window, which means that the recipient must book the reservation no more than 30 days prior to the date of arrival.

Upgrades are often offered for an additional fee, which usually ranges from $50 to $1,000. This fee is for the entire length of the stay and is only charged one time. Accommodation upgrades are useful when recipients need larger accommodations or if travelling during peak season when inventory is limited.

Accommodation options range from studio rooms to villas with up to three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a kitchen and a living room. Guest occupancy limits are listed for each accommodation, with studios generally limited to two people, one-bedroom offerings limited to four people, two-bedroom offerings limited to six to eight people and three-bedroom villas limited to 10 people.
