Military Lodging: Armed Forces Vacation Club
The Armed Forces Vacation Club (AFVC) offers DoD-affiliated personnel affordable condominium rentals at resorts around the world on a space available basis. The basic cost is $349 per unit per week. That averages to about $50 a day! Compared to regular prices of averaging $70+ a day, this is a real savings for military personnel.
These condominium units are usually only available off-season or on short-notice. They can be a real bargain if:
- you enjoy off-season activities in popular locations, or
- you can travel on 10 days notice or less
This program allows you to avoid the hassle of high-season prices, crowd, and lines for attractions. The AFVC website provides a search engine to search for available resorts within a specified date range. Be sure to check the AFVC site for further details and possible costs associated with this program.
