    Wyndham & Vacasa Partnership

    Vacasa is an international vacation rental company based in Portland, Oregon. It is one of the largest vacation rental management companies in North America. Wyndham and Vacasa finalized their partnership deal in 2021 and this exclusive partnership allows Wyndham Rewards members to earn and use Wyndham Rewards Points to book a stay at one of those vacation rental properties that are within the Vacasa portfolio. 

    Vacasa’s vacation rental properties range from a studio condo to a beach cottage, a ski cabin, or an entire house rental. This type of vacation rental is your home away from home. It comes with a full-size kitchen, dishes and utensils, washer and dryer, etc. with all things that you have at your own home. This is a great option for families traveling with kids or groups traveling together because everyone will be staying under one roof, cooking meals, and hanging out together. 

    How Many Wyndham Points Needed to Redeem Vacasa? 

    Vacasa requires 15,000 Wyndham Rewards Points per night per bedroom. In other words, if you find a 1 bedroom Vacasa property, you can use 15,000 Wyndham points per night to redeem. It does not matter if the property has a loft or a basement or multiple beds, as long as it’s advertised as a 1 bedroom unit, it’ll only need 15,000 Wyndham points per night. 2 bedrooms will require 30,000 points per night, 3 bedrooms will require 45,000 points per night and so on. 

    If you have Barclay Wyndham Rewards Earner Business Card, you receive a 10% discount on award stay's redemption. This means that you'll only need to use 13,500 Wyndham points per night to book a 1 bedroom Vacasa property. 

    It’s worth noting also that, these types of vacation rental properties generally have minimum night requirements but you should be able to tell right away when you search for availability that I’ll show you how to do below. 

    Moreover, by using Wyndham points to redeem for Vacasa, you do not have to pay for any taxes and other cleaning fees, etc. which are typically charged by these types of vacation rental businesses. You only need to make sure you have the full amount of points available at the time of booking. 

    In summary:
    • 15,000 Wyndham points per bedroom, per night. 13,500 Wyndham points per bedroom, per night if you have Barclay Wyndham Rewards Earner Business Card.
    • Minimum nights are required and vary by the property. 
    • Taxes and fees are all included when you book Vacasa using Wyndham Rewards points. 

    How to Book Vacasa Using Wyndham Rewards Points?

    Currently, it’s not possible to redeem Wyndham Rewards points for Vacasa online. However, you can search for availability online and then have Wyndham Rewards agent book for you using your Wyndham points.

    There are a couple ways to do this:
    • Call Wyndham Rewards line to book. 
    • Email Wyndham Rewards Fulfillment center to book. 

    Here's what you'd do:
    • Go directly to Vacasa Website and input your search parameters. 
    • On the search result page, you can filter through the result based on your preferences.
      • Keep in mind that 1 bedroom requires 15,000 Wyndham points or 13,500 Wyndham points if you have Barclay Wyndham Rewards Earner Business Card.

    Once you know which Vacasa property or unit you want to book, you have two options to contact Wyndham Rewards customer service to use your Wyndham points to book.

    Call to Book Option:

    • You can call Wyndham Rewards number at 1-866-996-7937
    • When the agent is on the line, provide your Wyndham Rewards number to the agent and let him/her know the reason for your calling. 
    • The agent then will proceed to send out a request to confirm Vacasa's availability based on the information you provided. 
    • You should hear back from Wyndham Fulfillment center within 24 hours via email communication. Once availability is confirmed, they will ask you one more time in the email whether you'd like to proceed with booking. Simply reply back to confirm and they will finalize your booking with Vacasa using your Wyndham Rewards points. 
    • Finally, you will receive a reservation confirmation email from Vacasa. Click on View Your Trip as you are required to sign your rental agreement to finalize your reservation and receive check-in details. See the image below. 

    Email to Book Option:

    If you do not want to call, you can email the Wyndham Fulfillment center at triprewards.fulfillment@wyndham.com. The content of your email should include the following information: (HT: FM)

    Hello, could you please help me book the following Vacasa property using my Wyndham Rewards points?

    Within 24 hours of your email's request, you should receive a response from the Wyndham Rewards Fulfillment center verifying the availability, cancellation policy, and total points needed to book. If you still wish to continue, you simply reply back and ask them to proceed with the booking. 

    • Lastly, whether you call to book or email to book, you will receive a final confirmation email about your successful Vacasa booking using your Wyndham Rewards points. 
    • Click on View Your Trip in the email as you are required to sign your rental agreement to finalize your reservation and receive check-in details. See the image below. 
    Please note that Vacasa and Wyndham systems are not fully integrated. If you wish to view your confirmed Vacasa reservation online, you'll have to create an account with Vacasa directly. 

    Vacasa Cancellation Policy

    Vacasa does have a 30 day before arrival cancellation policy. If you either book or cancel within the 30 days window, you will not be able to cancel the reservation and receive your Wyndham points back.
