How to book Vacasa Vacation Rentals with Wyndham points [Video]

6

Sometimes I find myself staying at a hotel when I’d really rather be in a vacation home just because I’d rather spend points than cash. I imagine that’s even more true for large families or groups traveling together. But this is exactly why it’s appealing that Wyndham lets you use their points to book Vacasa Vacation Rentals. You can get a whole house for just 15,000 Wyndham points per bedroom per night, often a pretty good deal! (And it’s worth mentioning, Wyndham sometimes sells their points for around 1 cent each.)

In the video below, Greg will walk you through the easy process, and I’ll summarize the steps below.

How to book Vacasa Vacation Rentals with Wyndham points:

  1. In order to use your Wyndham points for a Vacasa Vacation Rental, the overall price must come to less than $350 per bedroom, per night. So your first step is to search Vacasa’s site for a property you like which fits within that price constraint.
  2. Once you find something, you’ll want to actually click through to the property’s summary page to see the full cost including fees, since the search results page won’t show those full details.
  3. Take note of that full price and do a little math to confirm you’re within the allowed <$350/room/night rate. (For all of you fellow non-mathletes out there, take the total rate and divide it by the number of rooms, then divide that by the number of nights.)
  4. Once you’ve got your property picked out and you’ve confirmed it’s within your cost constraints, visit the Wyndham/Vacasa landing page to find the assigned phone line to make your booking. (At the time of writing this, the phone number is 800-441-1034).
  5. Do a happy dance – you just booked a sweet house for your vacation!

Can you put the booking on hold, in case you don’t have enough points?

The devaluation is worse than it looks. Availability is greatly diminished, too. Right after the devaluation, I went through approximately 10 units that qualified under $350 (including taxes and fees) and finally found one that was “accepting points”. Now that unit is heavily booked up and this is for April and May in Maui. I haven’t rented very many Vacasa units but before, anything I found that was available and met the financial criteria was “accepting points”.

Suggestion: don’t forget to mention the zero notice 33% devaluation that occurred last week. Just terrible. I guess if you’re looking for properties nowhere exciting then you won’t have trouble, but anywhere exciting expect to now find nothing. It’s genuinely sad.

HELLO. This is all gone now. All gone. Such a lie. Most the listings have been devalued. .

Suggestion. It’s much easier to take your number of bedrooms multiply by number nights and by 350. So in your Hawaii example, calculated 1 br * 4 * 350 = 1400.

Just eliminate all properties that have a Total price (including cleaning and junk fees) that are below $1,400. No need to keep doing those calculations for EACH property. Similarly 2 bedrooms, total price under $2,800.

Easy peasy.
