SAN FRANCISCO, CA (Jan. 7, 2013) — Vacatia.com (www.vacatia.com), the trusted, easy-to-use marketplace to buy and sell timeshares online, today announced the “Vacatia on Us!” Sweepstakes where one lucky person will win $10,000 for a trip of a lifetime or a lifetime of trips.

The Sweepstakes are open from now through April 15, 2014 and all entrants must register at http://vacatia.com/contest/10k-sweepstakes.
The grand prize winner will have their choice of a once in a lifetime vacation, or ownership of a timeshare that will provide a lifetime of amazing vacation experiences. If a lifetime of vacations is selected, the winner will receive $10,000 to spend on Vacatia.com for the purchase of a timeshare or fractional interest. $10,000 could buy the winner an annual weekly use of an oceanview unit at Marriott Maui Ocean Club or a two-bedroom townhouse at Lake Tahoe’s lavish Old Greenwood or ownership at Disney’s Sarasota Springs Resort, near Orlando. Alternatively, the winner could choose the vacation of a lifetime option, where a party of four will enjoy a week-long escape to the Caribbean, Mexico, Hawaii, Lake Tahoe, Orlando or Arizona. Vacatia will provide flights, deluxe, two-bedroom accommodations at an exclusive timeshare resort and organize a memorable regional experience such as an everglade safari, horse-drawn sleigh ride, kite surfing lessons, a VIP golf package or whale-watching excursion.
“This is an exciting sweepstakes with a grand prize sure to wow any travel enthusiast,” said Nicole Reitter, Vacatia’s Director of Marketing. “It’s amazing how far $10,000 can go on Vacatia. I love that the cost of a single vacation can buy annual use of a gorgeous oceanfront timeshare in Maui or, a three-bedroom penthouse suite in a Starwood property in Cabo.”
