First, their vouchers are actually for 7 nights instead of 5 nights. Wohoo! Normally there would be an upgrade fee since these are for two extra nights, but all things considered, we're making these upgraded vouchers available free of charge.
Here's how Odenza's program works: Once you receive your Odenza Certificate, you'll have two years to complete your travel. Just like with our old program and our upcoming program, you'll still need to cover the taxes & fees. On our old program, they required you to pay the taxes & fees upfront, before you could see available dates & resorts, and those taxes & fees were non-refundable. With Odenza, they only require a $100 deposit to register your certificate, and the deposit is fully refundable at any time.
The taxes & fees with Odenza are $40/night × 7 nights and don't have to be paid until you actually book. The $100 deposit will be applied towards the taxes & fees. (Please note: On Odenza's program, they call the taxes & fees a "booking fee," so don't let that confuse you.) Unlike the old program, most of their resorts don't charge a resort fee, but a few may. Prior to booking, Odenza will let you know if there are any charges to expect upon check-in.
You can, if you wish, stay for less than the 7 days, but please note that with Odenza you'll still have to pay the full $280 booking fee regardless of how long you stay. They often have options for upgraded resorts with fewer days (usually 3 or 5 days) for the same $280 fee.
Just like our old and upcoming programs, you aren't required to attend a timeshare presentation. However, it's still important that you can be flexible with your travel dates. We can't guarantee that specific dates will be available. If you need specific dates, please plan to use the Hotel Savings Card as a backup plan if your desired dates aren't available.
Odenza's vouchers are good for up to two adults and two kids age 11 and under. They can usually accommodate older or additional children with a room upgrade. You'll also need to have a major credit card, as Odenza doesn't accept debit cards. Also, please be aware that they don't allow group travel. Finally, they only allow one voucher per household per 24 month period. So if you have multiple vouchers, you're eligible to use one with Odenza's program, and any others can be used on our program once it launches. You can view a sample Odenza voucher here.
