Armed Forces Vacation Club expands to nightly rental program

As authorized Coast Guard MWR patrons, you and your family members are eligible for the benefits of the Armed Forces Vacation Club. AFVC has now expanded the service to offer nightly rental opportunities. In efforts to enhance the AFVC benefits, customers may rent a vacation condo in seven-day increments or now, choose to stay for one night or more to better suit the needs of your vacation time. “Nightly Getaway” rates start as low as $75 per night during peak season. Seven-night stays are still available for only $264. Nightly Getaway reservations must be made within 60 days of travel. Weekly rentals may be made up to 12 months in advance.

By utilizing the AFVC, for either an entire week or single nights, you also help support MWR activities because with every reservation, a rebate goes back to the installation. There are no membership fees or dues to utilize AFVC resorts and you are not required to attend a sales presentation. Availability is posted daily on the AFVC Web site: www.afvclub.com. The Web site also contains detailed procedures and instructions for making reservations. You may locate resort condos world-wide for only $264 per week by going to the “Space-A” section or search for the same quality resort condos on a nightly basis in the “Nightly Getaways” section. If you do not have internet access, simply call the central reservation center at 1-800-724-9988 for weekly reservations or 1-888-338-0970 for “Nightly Getaway” reservations. A vacation counselor will assist you with searching for a vacation opportunity, and to credit the rebate to a participating Coast Guard installation of your choice. To make an AFVC reservation, patrons will need their AFVC installation identification number obtainable from participating MWR offices or provide them with the number 228 for all other Coast Guard installations.

The Coast Guard MWR program provides a wide array of programs and activities established to meet the mission readiness and retention needs of our military members and support the Coast Guard family. To find out what is available through your MWR program, visit www.uscg.mil/mwr.
