RCI, the world’s largest vacation exchange network, today debuted a new mobile app, designed to make booking vacations easier and faster than ever before for RCI’s 3.8 million members worldwide.
Featuring desktop functionality built natively for mobile use, the new app blends modern technology and secure access to provide RCI members with the ability to easily exchange their timeshare at more than 4,300 affiliated resorts in 110 countries, with just a few taps on their phone or tablet screens.
The app’s refreshed design offers intuitive navigation and an enhanced user interface that supports many new features including responsive search results, a new calendar layout with optimized search functionality and a personalized dashboard based on membership type.
The engaging new Home Screen and Dashboard displays content based membership type, whether the member participates in RCI Weeks® program, the week-for-week exchange system, or the RCI Points® program, the industry’s first global points-based exchange system. A member’s upcoming confirmed vacations and trading eligibility are showcased prominently on the home page each time they open the app.
RCI’s new app also offers upgraded functionality based on member feedback, such as secure access through biometrics (Touch ID), a persistent log-in throughout the booking journey and push notifications. Users are also able to contact RCI customer service directly from the app, as well as provide real-time feedback.
Throughout its 45 year history, RCI has pioneered innovation in travel. The company invented the concept of vacation exchange in 1974, offering members increased flexibility and versatility with their vacation ownership experience. Today, RCI offers its 3.8 million members access to more than 4,300 affiliated resorts in approximately 110 countries.

Our completely redesigned mobile app offers our members an enhanced user experience and puts the focus on their vacations,” said Fiona Downing, senior vice president, Global Strategic Growth & Development for RCI Exchanges.
