Luggage: check, military discount airline ticket: check, hotel accommodations: uh oh! Reserving a place to stay is a crucial part of most vacation planning. There are plenty of options aside from a low-cost motel or typical hotel. One of them is a condominium timeshare and it has become very popular. Popular enough, in fact, to have an entire program developed around it.
The Armed Forces Vacation Club provides DoD personnel with condominium rentals at popular resorts throughout the U.S. Prices are affordable and rentals are posted according to available space. Expect to pay a basic cost starting at about $299 per condo unit weekly, which equates to around $42 per day. Regular prices start at about $70 daily so this is quite a bit of savings.
Condo rentals are commonly only available on short-notice or off-season. This actually works perfectly for military personnel who purchase a discount airline ticket that requires departure within ten days or less. While it may be very difficult to find lodging at a hotel, there might be plenty of condo units available in the destination area.
Off-season is sometimes the best time to visit theme parks like Disney World or other vacation hot spots because you avoid the crowds. By searching on the AFVC Web site, military personnel can view condo resorts with availability within a certain date range. One example of a current offer is a seven-night stay in beautiful Scottsdale, Arizona, for just $369 or $52.71 per night.
Military discounts for airline tickets and condo rentals make any vacation more affordable. The entire family can visit places like New Hampshire, Georgia, or Massachusetts within the next couple of months and pay very reasonable prices. Being in the military involves long days and a never-ending dedication to defending our country. Take some down time to enjoy this land you work so hard to protect.
