How to Book a Hotel Using the Experiences by Welk Mobile App
Congratulations on becoming an Experiences by Welk member. We have so much to show you! You’re holding the secret to some of the best savings on your ideal hotel, rental car, vacation activity, and more, all in the palm of your hand.
So let’s put your phone into vacation mode!
Making a booking is easy. Let’s say you want to come to sunny San Diego for a weekend in October. Good choice! Unless you’ve already booked a stay at Welk Resorts San Diego, you’ll need a hotel room, right?
Here’s a step-by-step tutorial on how to book your hotel using the Experiences by Welk mobile app (and possibly save a whole heap of money while doing it):
1. Pick up your mobile device and tap the Experiences by Welk icon to open the app.
2. Type in your login information—the username and password you registered your account with and the same as your Owner’s lounge account login—and then tap Log in.
3. Tap the Hotels tile in the home screen.
4. Use the wizard to type in the destination of where you’d like to go (San Diego, in this example), select the date range of your stay, number of guests, and whether you’ll be using money or Welk Reward Credits to book the stay. When everything looks right, tap Search.
5. Scroll through the results for the location and savings that suits your needs. In this example, we’re going to select the Sheraton Carlsbad Resort & Spa ($807 in savings—are you kidding!?). Tap Select Room under the hotel you want to book.
6. Review the room options and prices, then tap Book next to the room of your choice.
7. Tap Select next to the traveler(s) you want to add to this itinerary. If this is your first time booking, tap Add a new traveler to enter and save your information for future use.
8. Select the checkbox next to the payment method you want to use (see the next image). If you haven’t added a credit card to your Experiences by Welk app, tap Add a new credit card and type in the credit card information.
9. If you’d like to share your itinerary with friends or family, enter their email addresses below.
10. Finally, tap the checkbox next to I agree to Hotel Terms and Conditions and Cancellation Terms, and then tap Place Your Reservation to finish.
It’s that easy. Once you’re finished, you’ll receive an email confirmation for your records. You can always view your reservations by selecting the My Account > View Reservations.
If you prefer to plan your next wanderlust from a laptop or desktop computer, you can log into the Experiences by Welk website and make your bookings there. Either way, you’ll be well on your way to some pretty substantial travel savings.
Oh, and we almost forgot! On this reservation alone, we saved 58%!* We also earned valuable Welk Resort Credits, which can be used towards future travel options or even to offset VOA Dues.**
Not bad, huh?
