To allow for fair usage of major holidays for our investors, several weeks a year are designated as Peak Dates and are distributed through a biannual lottery.

Investors at 15, 22, 30 and 37 night levels can participate in one lottery per year so please choose the lottery with holiday dates that are most important to you.
Investors with 45 days or more may participate in both lotteries each year.

The Cycle 1 Lottery is held in July and includes peak holidays from mid-January to June of the following year.

The Cycle 2 Lottery is held in February and includes peak holidays from July 4th through New Year’s week.

It’s recommended to have a general idea of which Peak Dates you’re most interested in, if any, to determine in which Cycle to participate. Executive and Elite investors are only eligible for one of the two Cycles each year.

Therefore, if you’re an Executive or Elite investor and most interested in a Thanksgiving Peak Date, you’ll want to skip the Cycle 1 Lottery and enter the Cycle 2 Lottery.

Example: Let’s say you want to ski in 2024 but you also want to use your nights for Christmas of 2025. You would play in Cycle 1 in July 2023 for ski season of 2024. You would have to wait until Cycle 2 of the following year (February 2025) to play next.

A few weeks prior to each Lottery, you will receive a link to your e-ballot via email. You will also receive an email reminder of how the lottery works. If you’re going to participate in that Lottery, you’ll want to pay attention to the deadline to submit your selection.

You may make as few or as many selections as you would like. However, if you don’t win and you want to be eligible for priority status in the following lottery cycle, you must make A MINIMUM of 10 unique entries. We encourage you to make as many selections as possible for a better chance of winning.

A unique entry means a different date and location combination for each of the 10 entries. It can be the same destination with a different date, the same date with a different destination, or a new destination and date for each choice.

If you do not win any of your 10 unique choices, you will be eligible for Priority Status in the next lottery you are able to participate in.

Investors with Priority Status are placed in a smaller pool of investors (in their next eligible lottery) that are drawn just before the main lottery, so their chances of winning are increased.

During new home releases, we may also reach out to Priority Status investors to see if they would like any peak dates before the home’s calendar releases to all other investors. By choosing to accept one of these weeks, the investor’s Priority Status would be removed.

Priority Status only lasts for one year, so investors can choose which lottery to use it in.

Yes. You must have period nights and Reservation Caps available to book lottery wins. Otherwise, you will be required to purchase additional access.

You are also welcome to cancel or shorten any other future reservations (as long as they are outside of the 45 day cancellation window) in order to free up room in your nights or res caps, if needed.

No. You may use anywhere from 2 – 7 nights.

However, certain destinations may require a minimum stay.

A unique selection is a different date and destination for each choice. It can be the same destination with a different date, the same date with a different destination or a new date and destination.

If you are the winner, you are welcome to decline your win. Please keep in mind that if you win a peak date but decline that win, you will not receive Priority Status and have used your “play” for the year.

If you made 10 unique selections and did not win in the initial drawing, and the winner declines, we will offer this declined date to you prior to the calendar opening for all investors.

You have the option to accept this opening or keep Priority Status.

New Cancellation Policy in 2023

We are excited to share with you a new 120-day cancellation policy for peak holiday nights beginning in 2023. While peak holiday nights were previously not able to be cancelled, we wanted to provide more flexibility if your plans should change.

Peak holiday night cancellations within 120 days will be treated the same as a normal reservation cancelled within 45 days. If another investor picks up your cancelled nights, the nights will be credited to your account.

While it is not guaranteed, there is a chance another investor would like your cancelled peak holiday week, especially with our cancellation watchlist feature.

For example, if you cancel seven nights within the 120-day period, and another investor picks up five of your seven nights, those five nights will be credited back to your account, and you will only be penalized for two.

Please call or email your Personal Travel Concierge if you have any questions about the Holiday Lottery, priority status or your e-ballot.

You can always find their information on your Voyager dashboard.
