If you buy a timeshare, in becoming an owner it’s important to be sure you’ve bought at the right resort. And it can be right for you for many reasons.
Perhaps you love the quality of the resort and its location, or like the especially excellent options for exchange it brings your family. Exchanging or swapping your timeshare opens you up to a world of different holiday opportunities, but all exchange companies tell you they offer a variety of options… So why would you choose to become an RCI member and use RCI exchange?
RCI has been in the business of timeshare exchange holidays for 40 years and has nearly 4,500 affiliated resorts in its exchange programme in more than 100 countries around the world. Whether it’s a luxurious beach break, a cultural retreat, being at one with nature or an exciting last-minute getaway – there’s an RCI exchange holiday for every traveller.
Benefits of RCI Exchange – The Four Pillars
Unrivalled Choice: with nearly 4,500 affiliated resorts, RCI has the largest resort and destination choice available of any exchange holiday provider in the market today, which means it has around 2,000 more affiliated resorts than its nearest competitor. Add to that its extended holiday property network, available to its members through its sister company brands in the Wyndham Group, such as Wyndham Hotels, James Villas, Hoseasons, cottages4u, Canvas Holidays, Landal GreenParks and more, and it means you can experience so many different types of holiday using RCI membership.
Flexibility: RCI’s unique trading power system makes an RCI exchange more flexible. It shows you exactly how much trading power or points you need for the exchange holiday you want. Using RCI’s Deposits and Credits combining system, and with the ability to save and borrow from different Use Years, you can trade up or down against the value of your banked timeshare week and be assured that you will get every last bit of value from your timeshare. Using RCI membership quite simply means you will be able to take more holidays in the places you love, and those you have yet to discover.
Service Excellence: With more than 40 years’ experience, you can trust RCI’s knowledge and expertise in exchange holidays, and you can plan your holiday any time of the day on RCI.com.
High Quality: Each of RCI’s resorts is reviewed for quality and rated by its members, who are invited to feedback to RCI in a Welcome Home Comment Card which awaits them on their return from holiday. RCI’s own resort services teams across Europe work closely with affiliated resort management teams to support them in delivering a quality guest experience in every way.
Many more benefits for RCI members
RCI also has lots of ways for members to holiday without having to use their weeks or points, but which still offer the great value and choice RCI members expect.
RCI Extra Holidays, for example, are week-long breaks at RCI-affiliated resorts which are booked with a cash payment, just like a regular hotel stay. The big plus is that you get to stay in the same spacious resort accommodation, with all the benefits and amenities, you will come to expect from RCI exchange holidays.
If you can travel at short notice, an RCI Late Deal could work for you. Book within 45 days of travel and you can access great quality accommodation with set prices per unit size, regardless of destination or resort classification.
Another benefit of RCI membership is that members can access exclusive offers at selected resorts. From exclusive discounts on Greek island cruises offered by Anezina Village resort and a fantastic half-board offer at El Marques in Tenerife, to an incredible $1,800 in Resort Credits to use on spa treatments, tours, golfing, dining and drinks at the Hard Rock Vallarta Hotel in Mexico, RCI makes sure its members’ money goes further on holiday.
