Via View From the Wing, you can now use your Wyndham hotel points for stays at over 17,000 homes and condos around the world with Wyndham’s Vacation Rentals network.

That’s great news for folks who like earning and using Wyndham points.  And because you’ll have more ways to use your points, they just became more valuable!

Here’s more about what the introduction of Wyndham’s Vacation Rentals means for you.

Redeeming Wyndham Points for Vacation Rentals

Link:   Wyndham Vacation Rentals

With Wyndham’s Vacation Rental network, you can now use your Wyndham points for award nights at over 17,000 homes and condos all over the world.  And they plan to continue adding locations through 2018!

This gives folks with Wyndham points more options to redeem Wyndham points, and makes your points valuable.

While stays at Wyndham hotels normally cost 15,000 Wyndham points per night, you’ll be charged 15,000 Wyndham points PER ROOM, PER NIGHT, for award stays at their vacation rental locations.

So, for example, a 1-bedroom home will cost 15,000 Wyndham points per night, a 2-bedroom will cost 30,000 Wyndham points, and so on.  And different rentals will have different minimum stay requirements, like you normally find when renting a vacation home.

The neat thing about this program is that you’ll now be able to use your Wyndham points to possibly have a more authentic experience when traveling abroad.  For instance, you could use Wyndham points at this cottage in the countryside of France.

How to Book Your Wyndham Vacation Rental

For now, you can NOT book any of Wyndham’s Vacation Rentals online.  You’ll have to call 866-370-0727 to book your stay.  But Wyndham plans to make online reservations available by the middle of 2017.

You can however search for places on Wyndham’s site.

There’s no official policy yet regarding how award nights will be made available.

Wyndham also says Wyndham Rewards members will be able to book stays at Wyndham’s vacation rentals up to 9 months in advance.  And they plan to allow folks to earn points for stays at participating vacation rentals in mid-2017 too!

Bottom Line

You can now use Wyndham points for free stays at over 17,000 homes and condos around the globe through Wyndham’s Vacation Rental network.

They’ll charge 15,000 Wyndham points per room, per night, for awards stays.  I like that Wyndham is giving folks more ways to use their points.

Would these points work for stays at Wyndham's Worldmark properties?

Hopefully this is the start of a trend. I love Airbnb and hostels, as the hosts are able to provide a more authentic local experience. Hipcamp will be my next exploration. DUE to this post I will keep my eye on the Wyndham program and cards. Thank you again!

@phil - Yes the minimum stay requirements vary by property, so that's something to be aware of when searching!

You didn't mention how to get a Wyndham bonus point card.(?)

The links weren't working yesterday, but there is an offer in the Hot Deals tab. It isn't a very high offer though, so we skipped mentioning it in the post!

Some of their resorts require a minimum stay of 2 nights.
