Today, Wyndham expanded its partnership with Vacasa allowing Wyndham Rewards members to redeem their points at more than 15,000 new vacation rental properties.
You don’t earn points for booking Vacasa rentals but can redeem points for stays at them at the rate of 15,000 points PER BEDROOM per night. The number of points required is dependent on how many bedrooms the Vacasa unit has.
You can access the Wyndham Rewards page for vacation rentals here.
Here’s the announcement from Wyndham:
Wyndham Rewards Grows Redemption Portfolio, Adds Thousands of New Vacation Rental Properties Through Expanded Partnership with Vacasa
Top-rated loyalty program now offers over 50,000 hotels, vacation club resorts and vacation rentals globally
PARSIPPANY, N.J. (February 25, 2021) – Wyndham Rewards®, the award-winning loyalty program known for its simplicity and generous rewards, today announced the addition of more than 15,000 new vacation rentals to its global redemption portfolio through an expanded relationship with Vacasa, North America’s leading vacation rental platform.
Available to book today, the new offerings give Wyndham Rewards members access to Vacasa’s entire vacation rental portfolio, more than doubling the number of Vacasa properties previously available via the rewards program. Vacasa’s vacation rental portfolio spans North America, Belize and Costa Rica and complements Wyndham’s existing redemption portfolio, which now offers more than 50,000 hotels, vacation club resorts and vacation rentals globally.
“More than ever before, today’s travelers want options,” said Eliot Hamlisch, executive vice president, Loyalty and Revenue Optimization, at Wyndham Hotels & Resorts. “How they travel, where they stay, and what kind of accommodations they need routinely vary by trip and with whom they’re traveling. To be able to offer Vacasa’s full portfolio is a huge win for our members, building on our already robust offerings with thousands of new places to stay.”
Vacasa’s vacation rentals, which consist of privately owned homes that are professionally managed, cater to a wide array of travel styles and vary in size from studios and one-bedrooms to mansions with 30 bedrooms or more. Guests can take their pick of traditional offerings like chic beach bungalows, sweeping countryside estates, cozy mountain cabins and luxe waterfront condos, or experience more eclectic offerings like treehouses, airstreams, floating homes, tiny homes, and yurts.
“Home rentals have surged amid the pandemic and are becoming increasingly popular with a wide-array of travelers around the globe,” said Mike Dodson, chief revenue officer for Vacasa. “Through our expanded relationship with Wyndham, we’re able to increase the visibility of our owners’ homes to 86 million enrolled Wyndham Rewards members around the globe, while giving those same members more ways to stay, in more destinations, than ever before.”
Wyndham Rewards prices vacation rental free night redemptions at 15,000 points per bedroom per night. Members can browse available properties—including thousands of studio and one-bedroom options—by visiting www.wyndhamrewards.com/redeem and following the booking instructions for their preferred vacation rental partner.
Vacasa acquired Wyndham Vacation Rentals in 2019 and Hyatt’s Oasis business in 2018. Likely reason for this partnership that has now expended.
It seems that you need to browse these properties on Vacasa’s platform and then call Wyndham Rewards to book them at 15,000 points per night per bedroom (can get pricey fast!).
