What is covered and not covered by the travel voucher?
Should you win, you will receive your hotel accommodation on us, with an estimated retail value of between $195 and $300 per night, depending upon the hotel and season. You will be responsible for all other expenses including but not limited to airfare, transfers, food & beverages, gratuities, resort fees if applicable, taxes, and any other personal or miscellaneous expenses.
To give you an idea of what to expect, taxes are typically around $19/night, and are due upon activation of your vacation voucher. Some resorts also may charge a resort fee when you check in. Resort fees have become commonplace in the travel industry and help cover items like WiFi, local calls, resort amenities, fitness centers, in-room safes, beach chairs, umbrellas, beach/pool towels, activities and more. Here is our current information about the per-night resort fees for each of our destinations (we give a range, as fees can vary depending on the hotel and season):
- Las Vegas: $16 to $38
- Orlando: $5 to $12
- Cancun: $10 to $14
- Tenerife, Spain: No resort fees
- Phuket, Thailand: No resort fees
To help offset the cost of taxes and resort fees, you will receive a $150 credit that can be used towards future travel bookings.
The $300 Hotel Cash Card prize has no activation fee, but note that depending upon the hotel you choose and the length of your stay, you may or may not be allowed to use the entire cash card balance on a single booking. Any remaining balance remains on the card for future use and never expires.
How long do I have to use my voucher?
You'll have 7 days to activate your voucher once it has been issued. Once the voucher has been activated, you'll have 18 months to complete your travel. You'll need to book your vacation at least 30 days in advance.
Will I have to attend a timeshare presentation?
Absolutely not. You will never be required to attend any sales or timeshare presentation. These are real, top-quality resorts with no hidden fees or strings attached.
What are the requirements for travelers?
We can issue a vacation voucher to anyone of any age, but at least one person in the travel group must be at least 21 years of age and have a major credit card and a government-issued ID to check in. You also must live at least 100 miles away from the destination resort. Please keep in mind that for international destinations you will also need a valid passport to travel.
