RCI Points affiliated ownerships

How do I become an RCI Points Member?

If you are not a timeshare owner or if your current resort is not affiliated with RCI Points, we can assist you with your first step, whic is to purchase timeshare with an RCI Points-affiliated resort in order to become an RCI Points Member.

What is the difference between RCI Points® and other Timeshare Points systems?

This question is best answered in three parts.

  1. RCI Points is the first and only truly global Timeshare Points System. With RCI Points you can use your Points and enjoy the flexibility, control, performance and options in one fashion or another at all 3700 + RCI affiliated resorts worldwide and RCI Points Partners.

  2. With most other resort developers points systems, the flexibility, control and options you have are only as broad and far reaching as the number of sister properties in that developer’s family of resorts. Generally, if a member of one of these points systems wants to go to a resort outside its own family of properties, they must “convert” their points to a week, deposit that week with RCI and use it as a week when they exchange it. That’s traditional timeshare, which defeats the purpose of owning a points system in the first place.

  3. RCI Points are very simple to use. Your points are automatically deposited into your points account once your annual maintenance fee is paid to your home resort for that year. After that anything and everything you would like to do with your points can be facilitated by calling RCI Points or manage your RCI Points account on line. Its very simple and user friendly.

Why is there a difference between the number of RCI Points and other Points systems?

When you think of any point’s system think currency. Just like different countries have different monetary systems, different points developers have different points valuations.

For example, Fairfield generally deals in the hundreds of thousands to millions of points, while Sunterra and Blue Green deal in single thousands of points.

RCI Points deals in the tens of thousands of points.

So, without a standardized conversion table between the points systems, comparing say, RCI Points to Fairfield Points, is like comparing the U.S. dollar to the Italian Lire.

What "TRADING VALUE" do my Points have?

One of the greatest things about RCI POINTS is... POINTS are POINTS! There is no trading power with RCI POINTS. No longer are there the concerns about which season, size unit or resort designation to own. Think of points as a form of currency. A dollar in Hawaii is the same as a dollar in San Antonio! All that matters is that you have enough points to confirm the reservation request you have chosen.

So, because POINTS are POINTS! The goal is to acquire as many Points for annual usage for the least amount of money with a reasonable annual maintenance fee.

We are your best source to achieve this goal!

How did RCI come up with the Point values of the resorts?

The Point values are based upon several variables including location of resort, resort quality, resort amenities, unit configuration, resort and regional demand and time of year.

How many Points do we need?

That depends on how many nights per year you and your family desire to travel. The helpful people at Timeshare Resales Worldwide can and will help you determine what points package is best for you to start with.

How do I us non-points RCI resorts if I am an RCI Points member?

The Regional Points Exchange Charts in the RCI Points Community Guide shows you the number of Points you will need to book a particular season and size of unit for every region of the world. So when you are ready to make the reservation, simply call your RCI Travel Consultant to check the availability.

How is my Use Year determined?

Use Year is the annually recurring 12-month period during which you must use your RCI Points. Points that remain unused at the end of the Use Year are automatically saved unless they had been previously saved. Points are made available to the member at the beginning of a Use Year and are valid for one year.
