From RCI Weeks to RCI Points
An evolution in the timeshare trading system
With 35 years of experience with more than 4500 affiliated resorts worldwide and nearly 4 million members, RCI continues to be the global leader in vacation exchange. From traditional week trading, RCI has successfully enhanced members’ vacation ownership with greater flexibility and added benefits by introducing its point membership in 2000, thus becoming the world’s largest point-based vacation travel club.
RCI Points membership allows members to use their points for short or nightly stays, or stays up to 21 nights at the same resort at numerous participating affiliated point resorts. Points can also be used towards discounts on a wide range of travel products such as hotel stays, cruise vacations, car rentals, airline tickets, and even entertainment events and amusement park passes.
The biggest advantage to an RCI Point membership is that to trade your timeshare it only requires... Points!
So if you were reading our previous article about the mechanics of trading traditional weeks...and that sounded complicated to you? Then, the point system maybe for you! Forget all about the trading guidelines, the resort status, the condo size, the season and so on...RCI simplified to its bare minimum of understanding... Points!
In order to access destinations, you will require points which vary according to the condo size, the season and the classification of the resort you want to go to. The point system has made timeshares much more flexible, with the added benefits of numerous RCI Point Partners. Points can also be bought, borrowed from future years use and accumulated from one year to another with a certain lifespan.
