How the Wyndham Home ExchangeŽ Program Works When you partner with Wyndham Vacation Rentals to rent your vacation rental property, you will automatically receive exclusive access to the Wyndham Home Exchange program. We will send you your own personalized welcome kit, which will include your participant ID and details on how to get started. Once you have this participant ID and have registered online at wyndhamhomeexchange.com/wvr, you are ready to start depositing weeks into the exchange system. You can deposit up to five weeks per calender year, per property. Each week you deposit will be given a Points value based on, among other things, supply and demand, accommodation size, the season, location and quality of the property. For example, a two-bedroom property is usually awarded more Points than a studio; and a peak season week typically receives more Points than a low season week. You can call a helpful and knowledgeable Wyndham Home Exchange vacation guide for help in selecting which weeks to deposit and to find out their Points values. After your weeks are deposited, you will have Points available in your account to use toward booking vacation stays. You can view your available Points online at the Wyndham Home Exchange website, wyndhamhomeexchange.com/wvr, or you can call a vacation guide at 1-888-724-7260. You can search through the extensive Wyndham Home Exchange inventory of affiliated vacation rental properties and resorts to choose where you want to go. Plus, Wyndham Vacation Rentals owners will often be given priority access to other vacation rental properties in the Wyndham Home Exchange system. You can use your Points to book full week stays, weekend getaways or midweek breaks. You don’t even have to travel during the same week you deposit - you can deposit a spring week and book a summer vacation - the choice is yours!

What our owners are saying...

“We found the Wyndham Home Exchange web site easy to use to find a property in the area we wanted (near Orlando), and it only took a few minutes with the customer service representative to apply our Points for the week. The property was very nice and met our expectations. We would definitely use the home exchange again. I would advise other owners to give it a try and book well in advance if you hope to find weeks during the prime months in Florida or ski country.”

–Vivian K.

“I love the Wyndham Home Exchange® program! My daughter and I stayed at Lioniki Residence on the island of Crete in Greece. We had a wonderful time! I’ve already booked a property for next November for my son’s honeymoon in Aruba, and I’m eyeing a property in Martinique for September. Wyndham Home Exchange customer service is wonderful to work with, and the site is easy to use.” –Linda S.


“Through the Wyndham Home Exchange® program, my daughter and I traded weeks at my Park City home for a stay at The Madeira Regency Palace on the island of Madeira in Portugal. I must admit we had a wonderful time and would highly recommend where we went to anyone! In fact, I was actually quite surprised and very happy when we checked out and I did not owe anything except for the extras we added on, like yoga classes and drinks. The advice I have for other owners is to keep navigating the website to find your Wyndham Home Exchange vacation spot. The site has a large selection, but don’t give up because it’s worth the time in the end. It was a great trip!”

–Joyce H.
