RCI Last Calls: Great Travel Deals and Savings!
As we have already covered, in order to obtain an RCI Membership, you must own a timeshare or vacation ownership package that is affiliated with RCI either through your purchase directly from the developer or from a secondary resale company.
For most of timeshare travelers, RCI is an exchange network that provides timeshare exchange worldwide. However, for many timeshare owners who are members of RCI, it also means great discounted travels. Last minute timeshare deals are offered to members for weeks available 45 days or less in a studio, 1 or 2-bedroom villa in most of the RCI destinations around the world. These Last-Call weeks starting at 395cad for a full week, represent great travel deals and savings for timeshare owners and members of RCI. And why such bargains?
What would you say is the most expensive hotel room in the world?
Ok, that’s a tricky question... you may want to say NY City, Dubai, etc. In fact, the most expensive hotel room is the ‘empty one’. Hotel rooms start off empty and as rooms get rented out and demand becomes more than supply, the prices increase. For resorts, it’s the opposite. The rooms start full and as more members deposit their time into RCI, the units become more available closer to the traveling dates and thus increasing the supply.
As occupancy dates get closer and closer, timeshare condos or villas that have not been traded are made available short notice to owners from around the world at highly discounted travel rates to avoid having empty units... or resorts.
Every week, RCI frees about 8,000 weeks which have not traded and all of those are offered to timeshare owners as timeshare deals under Last Call Vacations. So if you’re flexible and are the type of planning a vacation at 45 days or less, you may want to take a look at the RCI Last Calls, or what we often called “RCI Bonus Weeks”. Then all you do is book, pay and discover great places you might not even have thought about going... and brace yourself to be delightfully surprised to impromptu vacation at most economical value!
You can purchase as many Last Call weeks as you’d like as well as to buy them for friends and families. The cost of joining RCI is about 150cad per year, week exchange fee is about 335cad and last-calls weeks vary from 395cad to 465cad, depending on the condo size! How about that for discounted travels?
If you are considering buying a timeshare to use basically for trading to other destinations around the world, we would recommend that you take into consideration the Trading Power of your timeshare week.
