A vanilla option is a simple call or put option with no special features or observation dates. It gives the holder a time-limited right, but not obligation, to buy or sell an instrument at a predetermined price, in exchange for a premium. The premium is based on a number of factors, including the volatility of the underlying, the maturity of the option and how close to the forward price the strike is set.
