Vacation benefits are points that are awarded at the end of each vacation in The Sims 2: Bon Voyage. Up to three vacation benefit points can be rewarded to Sims who have a good vacation. These points can be used on any of a variety of vacation benefits, and these benefits will usually last for a few days.

Vacation scoringEdit

Points are accumulated or subtracted based on specific events that occur during the vacation. When the travel party returns home, the total points accumulated during a vacation will be averaged, and the household will be rewarded based on their final score. Positive vacations result in being allowed to select up to 3 benefits. An average vacation will not result in any reward, while a poor vacation incurs penalties for the Sims who travelled.
