If you already own a timeshare and would like to get more from it in terms of holiday choices and membership benefits, joining RCI gives you access to almost 4,500 properties at its affiliated resorts, in more than 100 countries. Adding your timeshare week to our network of Exchange Holiday accommodation could bring you one or more holidays in destinations worldwide – all for the same exchange fee per property, per week.


Depending on the membership option you choose (RCI Weeks or RCI Points), and the size, location and demand for your unit and week, your timeshare is allocated an RCI trading power or points value. You simply book a holiday worth the same value or less and pay your exchange fee. If you want a really special holiday for a family group or perhaps to stay in a resort above your trading power or points value, RCI lets you combine your weeks from one use year to another, or to save and borrow from your points annual allocation, to get away on a dream holiday.


You can always ‘trade down’ as well, meaning a high-value ownership week can be swapped for two or three lower ‘value’ RCI exchange holidays.
