You know that awesome feeling when a hotel rewards you with an extra little perk during your stay, like a bottle of wine or complimentary breakfast? Imagine if you could enjoy the privacy and homelike comforts of a vacation rental without giving up those types of perks. Good news: You often can.

The first step is joining Orbitz Rewards (for free!) and then booking just four nights on Orbitz per year to become a Gold member, or 12 to become a Platinum member. Then, when you’re planning your trip, use the VIP Access property filter and the vacation rental filter and…voila! You’ll automatically get a free perk at that property such as a welcome gift, resort credit, or complimentary food and drink. This includes select condos, villas, apartment-hotels and more. Even if you haven’t yet reached Gold or Platinum status, Orbitz Rewards has something for you—you’ll earn Orbucks on most stays, which you can then use instantly on hotels.

So on your next vacation, be sure to check out these nine VIP Access vacation rentals that also include awesome perks for our most loyal customers like you.
