Plan Your Dream 2019 Vacation and Tote a Free Luggage Tag

Want to be happy? Plan a vacation. We’re serious. Studies show that people who take their vacation days are happier than those who don’t. And there’s no better time to start planning than Jan. 29—National Plan for Vacation Day.

Although celebrated only in the United States, at HGV we want all our Club Members to use this day to plan their dream vacation early at one of our incredible locations around the world. Better yet, if you book an online reservation at an HGV property from Jan. 10–29, you will receive a free luggage tag set to tote around as you explore your new destination.

How Do I Plan My Dream Vacation?

If you saved your ClubPoints before the Dec. 31 deadline, now is a great time to use them! Planning your vacation is easy. Simply log in to the Club website and start searching. Once you’ve decided on your dream trip, take advantage of the self-service available online and book it.

Don’t Have Enough Points to Book?

Tell Me More About National Plan for Vacation Day

Did you know more than 50 percent of U.S. employees don’t use all their vacation time? The struggle to vacation is also real in Japan. In fact, in 2017, only 50 percent of employees used their earned vacation time. But vacations are good for you—doctors say so!

People who take time off are reportedly happier with their jobs, personal relationships, and physical health and well-being, according to the State of American Vacation 2018. Better still, people who plan their vacations early experience even greater happiness and more often use all their time off work, whereas those who don't take a vacation are more likely to suffer serious consequences—like heart disease.

Why work when you can celebrate? As Hilton Grand Vacations Club Members, you have vacations (yes, plural!) at your fingertips.
