5 Steps to Book Your Dream Resort

In just five steps, you can plan your trip like a pro. The Club Wyndham website makes it simple to plan, search, and book all of your bucket list vacations online. So click around. Find your suite spot. And book it. By following these tips and remembering to book in advance, you can get the resort and destination that you want.

Step 1: Nail Down The Basics

Stop dreaming, start planning. The sooner you start planning, the better prepared you’ll be to book your top choice when the opportunity comes. So get some of the basics covered.

  • Determine your points budget. How many points do you have left in your Use Year? When booking in the Express Window, are you willing to borrow from the next Use Year for that perfect trip? Plus, consider booking in quiet or value season (as opposed to high or prime) to make your points stretch even further.
  • Who’s going with you? Solo fun. A romantic together trip. A whole family gathering. Figure out who will travel with you to decide what kind of suite — or multiple suites — you’ll need to book.
  • Decide trip length and time. It’s best to be flexible here. Think about how many days you want your trip to last, then pick a few different time frames when you and your group can travel. Flexible dates can help you get the vacation you want.
Step 2: Plan Ahead For Adventure

While you can find some great last-minute resort deals, it’s best to start planning your trip as far in advance as possible. Take advantage of your booking windows to help ensure you get the dates you want.

  • Use your Advance Reservation Priority (ARP) booking window — between 13 and 10 months prior to your arrival date — at your home resort. You’ll have a three-month head start to book before other Club Wyndham owners who don’t share the same home resort.
  • Otherwise, book 10 months in advance. You can book a stay at any resort starting 10 months prior to your arrival during your Standard Reservation window. The further out you book, the more availability you’ll find.
Step 3: Explore Resorts

Sun-kissed beaches. Lively downtowns. Rugged mountains. And everything in between. Figure out what experience you want, then use your resort map to start searching for the perfect fit. And if you need a little help building your bucket list, Club Wyndham has you covered.

  • Save resorts. Use the heart icon on any resort page to add that resort to your bucket list. When you’re logged in, all of your favorites will appear on the My Bucket List section of your dashboard.
  • Get inspired. Discover featured resorts, must-see destinations, and awesome things to do in your destination guides, travel inspiration articles, and Destinations magazine.
Step 4: Book Your Reservation

Fast. Simple. No wait. The best way to book your vacation is online. You can see all resort availability in real time on your owner website, so take charge and be your own travel agent. Click around to compare resort options, travel windows, and vacation deals with ease. Then book your vacations 24/7, 365 days a year, with no call center hours of operation holding you back. Booking online = suite success. 

  • Pro tip: Check the “My Dates Are Flexible” box when searching to show availability +/- 3 days from your selected date range. It may be that the vacation you want is available just one day later. 
  • Step aside, weekends. Traveling during the weekdays is just as fun — and tends to offer better availability. 
  • Know your options. In many popular destinations, there are multiple Club Wyndham resorts to call home in the same area. If one is booked, check the others.
Step 5: Live Your Bucket List

Get excited! Start making your itinerary of things to see, do, and eat while you’re there. When it’s time, all that’s left to do is pack up, get going, and simply enjoy the vacation lifestyle. Then do it all over again.
