Keep Calm… 2021 is done and 2022 is on the doorstep!
 

Dear LVC Member,

Another year done and dusted! Can you believe it?! 2021 went past like a whirlwind and it seems like only yesterday that we celebrated Easter, in uneasy anticipation of what the year might still hold.

First we want to start off by acknowledging and thanking our LVC members for your support, continued payments and – most of all – making use of your portfolio to go on holiday! Despite the current global pandemic and the uncertainty around it, we have been overjoyed to see thousands of our members, together with their loved-ones, visiting our Club Resorts throughout 2021.

In this newsletter we will answer some of your top club-related questions, talk about the new 2022 (reduced!) exchange fee and announce the 2022 Bonus Break prices. We’ll be putting the spotlight on some of our favourite destinations and sharing some top holiday tips and tricks.

Wishing you an unforgettable, socially-distanced, adventurous, happy and healthy 2022!

Warmest Holiday regards
Your LVC Team

Your Club Portfolio Questions Answered

In the last newsletter we asked our LVC members to share the topics that they would like more information on, in regards to their holiday product. Here are the top results and a quick summary of each:

 
My Credits: What are they worth?

All availability in the LVC holiday pool is allocated a Credits value depending on the resort, unit type, season and duration interval. Your Club Credits’ value is the same as on the day you’ve purchased it. You will not require more Club Credits to secure a similar week, in a similar unit, at the same resort in 3 years' time or more, than you do now. The total Club Credits per annum may not vary and only seasonal/ school holidays cause fluctuations in individual weeks
 
My Portfolio: Can someone else use it?
- Power of Attorney and Guest Certificates


The registered member may give Power of Attorney to someone of their choosing. It is important to only give someone you trust Power of Attorney. This allows the appointed person to manage your club portfolio on your behalf. Should you wish to gift someone a holiday, then a Guest Certificate must be requested. The Club will then issue a Guest Certificate, which is a booking confirmation issued in the name of the person that will be occupying the booking.
Contact our call centre on 012 492 1230 or send us an email to correspondence@vrs.co.za for more information, or assistance.

My Bookings: Where can I go?

There are a wide variety of resorts, destinations, holiday-types and experiences to choose from, within the LVC pool of holiday accommodation (both locally and internationally). LVC members enjoy flexibility with regards to the size and type of accommodation and the season, depending on their portfolio and the availability of accommodation.

Log in to see availability
BUT as the saying goes: “The early bird catches the worm.” If you don’t plan and book your holidays ahead of time, other Club members will snap up their first choice of availability before you, especially when it comes to those sought-after peak holiday weeks and those resorts with an extremely high demand. The closer one gets to the actual check-in date, the less chance there is of accommodation still being available. Always keep in mind that the following year’s bookings open in September of the current year, excluding December availability; which opens in December of the current year.
 
My Bookings: How to make a booking?

We have an online member’s portal especially created for you, the member, to make bookings and to manage your Club portfolio.
