Americans are taking the least amount of vacation in decades, and it’s time to reclaim those days off! RCI, the worldwide leader in the vacation exchange industry, is kicking off the New Year by encouraging travelers to make vacation memories one of their resolutions.

To help travelers start off on the right foot, RCI is launching the Choose Vacation Sweepstakes. The sweepstakes, which is inspired by National Plan for Vacation Day, runs now through February 11, 2018 and invites all travelers to enter online for a chance to win and share a photo or video of a favorite vacation memory. Travelers can enter daily and earn more entries by sharing the sweepstakes on Facebook and Twitter.

“Vacations are not only a chance to unwind and unplug, but they also help build long-lasting memories with family and friends,” said Gordon Gurnik, president of RCI. “Spending more time with the people who matter most should be a standing resolution, no matter the year. That’s why we’re choosing now to help get travelers on their way.”

A total of seven vacation prizes will be given away during the course of the sweepstakes. Each week, a winner will be awarded a Resort Vacation Certificate (valued at $599 USD), redeemable toward a stay at a choice of resorts in destinations around the world. The Grand Prize winner will take home a vacation package worth $5,600 USD, including two $1,000 USD prepaid gift cards toward airfare and a seven-night stay at a select Hard Rock All-Inclusive Collection Resort.

Taking place during the sweepstakes on January 30, 2018, National Plan for Vacation Day encourages Americans to declare their vacation days for the rest of the year, at the start of the year. Established by the national movement Project: Time Off, the observance encourages Americans to transform their thinking and remove barriers to enjoying the 662 million unused vacation days that were left on the table in 2016.
