- The Armed Forces Vacation Club (AFVC) now offers the option of "nightly getaways." AFVC is a "Space Available" program that offers Department of Defense affiliated personnel the opportunity to take affordable condominium vacations at resorts around the world using condominium timeshares that the owners do not use.
The program is managed by RCI (Resort Condominiums International, LLC), a leader in the vacation rental industry.
Under the program, participants have the option to rent a vacation condo either in one night or more increments or stay for seven days, subject to availability. Resort properties are available in the United States and Canada, with "Nightly Getaway" rates start as low as $75 during peak season, "Last Call" weekly rentals in peak season starting as low as $199, and "Space Available" weekly rentals starting at $264. Nightly getaway reservations must be made within 60 days of travel. Weekly rentals can be made up to 12 months in advance. Rentals come in a variety of sizes: one bedroom and larger condos, studios and cottages. Many of the vacation properties come with fully equipped kitchens, washer and dryer, living room, dining area, swimming pool, hot tub, fitness center, and handicapped accessibility features.
"This is part of a continuing effort to enhance our vacation club in providing military personnel with more flexibility in choosing when and where they stay," said Verlin Abbott, AFVC program director. "With more vacation options available we expect an increase in customer satisfaction since this program will better suit many military members who may only have short periods of time available."
To make any AFVC reservation, members will need their AFVC installation identification number obtainable from your base Marine Corps Community Services (MCCS) Information, Tickets, and Tours (ITT) Office.
