When RCI introduced the RCI Points programme it was noted for having transformed shared ownership holidays. And now the exchange company is introducing exciting enhancements for its Points members.
RCI Points is more than just a way to purchase and take timeshare holidays. RCI Points members are able use their points to book a selection of travel products, through Points Partners, as well as to book RCI exchange holidays. Here are some examples of recent new offerings designed to help points members make more of their leisure time.
Each holiday and travel product has a points value allowing members to book RCI exchange holidays and travel products to the total value of their points. RCI Points members can currently book car hire with a Points Partner at a 50% points discount. This is part of RCI’s 2013 Points Partner sale, and is on all bookings made before September 30, 2013.
City breaks and travel discounts with RCI Points
Timeshare hasn’t traditionally been able to offer travellers a great range of city breaks, but now RCI’s UK-based members can book city break packages as a Points Partner benefit.
The city breaks include return flights and two nights’ hotel accommodation in a choice of three-, four-and five-star hotels. Cities available include Paris, Venice, Rome, Vienna and Barcelona, and are a good complement to RCI’s resort-based holidays.
Another benefit enhancement is that members who have RCI Points can now use their points to book any hotel sold by RCI Travel*.The hotels can be booked at destinations worldwide, which means RCI Points members can use their points for everything, from an overnight stay at an airport hotel to a weekend getaway. Hotels offered by RCI Travel include some of the world’s most popular names in hospitality – Marriott, Hilton, Four Seasons, Wyndham, Holiday Inn and Premier Inn.
Sean Lowe, managing director, RCI Europe, Middle East, Africa and India said: “We are passionate about finding ways to enhance products and services for our members and are pleased to be able to bring together this selection of improvements and offers.
“Our members are regular travellers and like to see the world in a variety of ways so we’ve put together offers that bring them more travel options and accommodations worldwide. RCI Points has always provided flexibility and an unparalleled level of choice, but now we’ve given our members even more holiday options and great discounts, we hope we have made RCI Points better value than ever.”
Added to the RCI Points enhancements, the company has also expanded its range of holiday homes by adding private holiday homes in Denmark to those it already offers in the UK, France, Italy and Spain.
Members can also book many different types of holiday accommodation – from camping to cottages – through RCI’s ability to work with its Wyndham Worldwide RCI sister brands, which include many familiar names from the holiday booking arena such as James Villa Holidays, Hoseasons, Landal GreenParks, Wyndham Hotels, Canvas Holidays and cottages4you.
