We have all been warned, “If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.” Well, there is at least one exception to that rule; resort condominium rentals for only $369 per week or $349 when booking on line through the Armed Forces Vacation Club (AFVC). Vacationers also help support MWR activities because 10% from each confirmation comes back to the installation MWR program. In 2001, eligible Coast Guard MWR patrons generated over $13,400 for MWR by booking resort vacations at locations around the world, paying far less than they would at most hotels. Normally, resort condos rent for up to $1,500 a week. Through the AFVC space available program, eligible personnel pay only $299 a week - a real vacation value. The AFVC resort vacation program is a win-win relationship. Customers may book 5 star resort condos at great savings while supporting the installation MWR. The AFVC is open to all eligible MWR patrons around the globe. To learn more about vacation opportunities through the AFVC, visit your MWR office or visit the AFVC web site, www.afvclub.com.

The web site not only explains AFVC rules and procedures, but, thanks to a live search engine from the AFVC reservation center, it also displays resort condos and available check-in dates. Because availability changes constantly, it pays to check the site regularly. If you find a resort and time that interests you, the on line reservation system or a simple phone call to the AFVC reservation center is all it takes to confirm your vacation. If you don’t find what you are looking for, call the reservation center anyway. In high demand areas, there may be opportunities that don’t make it to the web site and you may be the lucky caller that finds them first. You will need a credit card to confirm, but there are no penalties for cancellation or date changes due to military deployments or other official duties.

If you do not have internet access, you can do everything by phone. Call the reservation center at 1-800-724-9988 and tell them you are a first time AFVC caller. A vacation counselor will take your enrollment and help you find an available resort. The operator will open an individual membership account for you (there are no membership fees or dues) and assist you with finding availability that fits your interests and schedule. Don’t forget your installation number when making a reservation.

“Your Location” installation number is 309
