Every now and again, Interval International provides its members with an Accomodations Certificate. I have written about these before in this post.
The accomodations certificate provides you with a one week stay in various locations around the world. Sometimes the accomodations certificate is restricted to certain size units and is always restricted by geographic areas.
Many times, these accomodations certificates are less than exciting as they mainly offer accomodations in low demand, off peak season destinations. However, other times, some exciting opportunities come up and there are some fantastic deals.
Each accomodations certificate is different but most offer one week accomodations for a studio, one bedroom, two bedroom or three bedroom units. While it is not truly free since there is an exchange fee, it is a highly discounted week stay.
The exchange fee is $274 plus some taxes. Generally, you are looking at a fee of approximately $300 for seven nights. This works out to approximately $43.00 per night. That is a hard value to beat especially when competing hotels can charge over $300 per night!
In order to see if you have received a new accomodations certificate, you need to login to your Interval International account.
You click the "Exchange" button found below on the top navigation bar.
Click on "My Units" and if you are lucky enough to get a certificate, they will be showing on the right hand side under "My Certificates".
As you can see, I currently have two certificates available - one that expires on March 31 and one that expires on July 9th.
Unfortunately, the time and destinations do not appear to work out for one of my certificates. The second certificate is currently available through July 9th and actually has a decent amount of good/great inventory.
A couple of great finds so far is as follows:
1. Ski week in Vail for February
2. Multiple units at the Grand Bliss in Riviera Maya, Mexico for almost every month offered including summer weeks and Memorial Day weekend.
3. Spring/Early Summer weeks in Mountain destinations (Vail, Breckenridge, Park City, etc.)
Inventory with these accomodation certificates vary widely and change by the minute. If you are lucky enough to get one, it pays to search often and constantly. There are been some recent gems that pop up where $300 for a week is an absolute steal!
If you have one and reserve a great week, please post below so others can see!
