The Armed Forces Vacation Club (AFVC) is a "Space Available" program offering DOD-affiliated personnel the opportunity to take affordable condominium vacations at resorts around the world for only $329 per unit per week. The AFVC makes this possible by utilizing "excess" inventory at condominium timeshare resorts. "Excess" inventory consists of condominium units that resort owners are not using at anytime of the year. Check the club's website to search results and dates. To book your family vacation call (800) 724-9988.

The 7-night, Space-A condo rental offer is a great value, but it may not provide the variety of locations, dates and amount of advance planning notice that you need. That is why AFVC offers a variety of rental programs and options. In addition to Space-A rentals there are:

    High Demand - Weekly resort condos in high-demand locations and during peak season at discounted commercial rental rates, variably priced by location and unit.

    Nightly Getaways - The convenience and amenities of a resort condo on a nightly rental basis.

    Vacation Homes - Privately owned vacation homes and condominiums in popular destinations, such as Orlando, Myrtle Beach, Colorado, Cape Cod, the Florida Keys and more!

    Off-Duty Travelers Advantage - An independent membership based travel club that provides 24 hour service for discounted airline, rental cars, and hotel reservation services, as well as discounted cruise and tour packages.

    Special Offers from independent hotels, B&B’s campgrounds, car rentals, emergency roadside assistance, river cruises and more, all with discounts and savings for military personnel.

The 7-night condominium vacations are extremely popular. The majority of availability is generally in the US, Mexico, South America, and Europe. Availability varies, but frequently covers two dozen or more countries.

Condominium units typically include a full kitchen, stocked with everything from a refrigerator and stove to coffee pot and soap for the dishwasher. Many include washers and dryers. Most resorts provide amenities you aren't likely to get with a hotel room.

Guests have access to on-site recreational facilities, swimming pools, fitness centers, game rooms, gift shops, restaurants and organized activities. Golf and skiing are available on-site at some resorts or nearby. Add area attractions and you have an exceptional vacation for far less than you would normally expect to pay.

While condominium units are at timeshare resorts, there is NO requirement to attend a timeshare presentation. Some resorts are already sold-out and do not have active sales centers on-site. If the resort is still in sales, at some time during your stay, you will probably be given an opportunity to attend a presentation in exchange for a premium or gift (free dinner, theater/show tickets, amusement/theme park tickets, etc.). DON'T PANIC. Everyone at these resorts, even owners, are given this same opportunity. If you like the incentive gift and want to attend the presentation, you are welcome to do so. Do not feel that you have to; you are under no obligation; just say, "No, thanks."  And, you don't have to buy anything unless you want to!
