Is there a way to book a vacation club using points one year in advance??

    Interesting question.  Using Marriott.com or calling Platinum Elite you can try.  As of today, Marriott.com's 2010 calendar is active until September 5, 2010.  

     

    In a test scenario, the following search parameters resulted in 7 properties with availability some using Pointsavers:

    • State=Florida
    • Brand=Marriott Vacation Club
    • Check-in = 8/29/2010
    • Check-out = 9/5/2010

     

    The result set included:

    • Villas at Doral (Miami) 
    • Royal Palms (Orlando)
    • Sabal Palms (Orlando)
    • Crystal Shores (Marco Island)
    • Cypress Harbor (Orlando)
    • Grande Vista (Orlando)
    • Ocean Pointe (Palm Beach)

     

    Selecting Villas at Doral as a test, Marriott.com displayed a Rate Menu and computed the number of points required based upon the number of nights and bedrooms.  Keep in mind that redemption for Marriott Vacation Club uses the following schedule which went into effect July 16, 2009.  This was implemented in tandem with the integration of Marriott Vacation Club resorts into Marriott Hotel Categories:

    Processing the reservation online requires that you have enough points available for the e-certificate.  But, if you call Platinum Elite, you can reserve, and postpone point redemption until a week prior (merits checking).  Cancellation is required 3 days prior to arrival.

     

    For additional information, refer to the following posts and resources:
