What Are RCI Timeshare Points?
What are RCI Timeshare Points? RCI timeshare points or vacation points are a fluid way of owning a timeshare and your vacations. Revolutionary RCI Points make ownership much fairer and more beneficial to the timeshare owner than ever before.
When you buy a week of timeshare you own a share of a vacation resort, whilst ensuring luxury, amenities and location. However, make sure you buy the right one and the right one for your expectations or it may be difficult to exchange and get what you want, this is why RCI Points are so popular with owners.
What Is A Points Timeshare?
So, what is a vacation points timeshare then? Timeshares are generally a week of the year owned by deed, with the resort shared among the other owners, not just of that particular villa or apartment, but usually of the whole timeshare resort.
The idea is that once you have bought your share or shares and own them, then you only have to maintain their upkeep every year by paying a maintenance fee (yearly dues) and no longer have to pay expensive rents when you go on vacation.
When you buy a week it has a trading power depending on the time of year, the popularity of the resort, the quality rating, location, amenities and services and so on. When you are in RCI Points that is measured by a specific value in points, called RCI Points.
RCI Timeshare Points Set Your Free
So when you are in RCI Timeshare Points you are free of all the old timeshare rules and regulations of what you can or can’t exchange into, how early you banked your week and all those other rules that weigh your chances down.
RCI Timeshare Points, what’s it all about? RCI Timeshare Points is best described as a currency for timeshare. Rather than have all the variants of seasons, week numbers, unit sizes, resort facilities, grades and location, all coupled to how far in advance you decide to put your timeshare up for exchange with RCI, you just have a value in points, called RCI Points. You get a fresh issue of these points to use as you wish every year.
Your RCI timeshare points have a yearly management fee to keep the timeshare you own in good condition and there is a small cost to RCI to make a reservation, this varies to the length of stay, whether days or weeks, the price varies accordingly.
All timeshares have what is called a management or maintenance fee, which is billed every year for each week owned. This is a small charge for the running cost of the resort, shared amongst all the owners and covers staff costs, upkeep, taxes, tourism licenses renovation and refurbishment and of course, the maintenance of the specific apartment that you own as well as all other costs a resort incurs. This ensures that what you own remains in tip-top condition so that anyone that uses it feels that it is as good as new.
