After you’ve received your vacation voucher (within thirty days), you’ll need to send in the activation form with a $50 refundable deposit. You’ll then be emailed a welcome letter with detailed booking information and a reservation request form.
We must receive this reservation request form at least 45 days before your first preferred travel date. A Vacation Breakaway reservation agent will contact you approximately 30 days before your preferred travel date to discuss availability.
You will be responsible for the taxes on your hotel stay. You will also have to lay out a $50 deposit which will be refunded to you, provided you follow the terms provided below.
Taxes will vary by destination, but are typically $12 to $15 per night.
No, airfare is not included. You will have to provide your own transportation to your chosen destination.
You have one full year from the date on the voucher to reserve your vacation.
Just send us your activation form and deposit.

The only cases in which you will not receive a refund of your deposit are if you book a hotel stay and do not check into the hotel OR you do not request a refund before the voucher’s expiration date.
Refunds must be requested in writing after your hotel stay or at any time during the 1-year period before your voucher expires. Requests for refunds may also be e-mailed.
