Your vacation ownership gives you access to a world full of vacation opportunities.
If you’ve decided not to return to your home resort and want to explore other vacation options, here’s how to use your week and your RCI® Subscribing Member benefits to enjoy other great vacation experiences.
STEP 1: Deposit your week
As soon as you know you’re not planning to return to your home resort, deposit your week. You can deposit your week up to two years in advance of its start date or as late as 14 days before the start. Depositing your week as soon as possible gives you more options, more time to plan, and increases your vacation options. Even if you’re not sure exactly what you’d like to do or where you might like to go, deposit your week and RCI will hold your deposit until you are ready to decide.
STEP 2: Search for your vacation
With your week deposited, now consider the vacation experience you want. Focusing on the experience first, rather than a specific destination or resort, will afford you many more options. Use the Directory to gather information on RCI’s affiliated resorts or click here to find additional details, pictures and member reviews of resorts you’re interested in.
STEP 3: Confirm your Exchange, then enjoy your vacation
Once a vacation match is found, you can exchange your deposited week either online or with a Vacation Guide to close your search and complete the transaction. You’ll receive a written confirmation from us, verifying the resort and your check-in date.
Sometimes a match for your request is available immediately. If not, start a convenient, personalized search for the vacation you want. Your request will be compared against newly deposited weeks as they enter the exchange system every day. Once you initiate a search, your work is done. There’s no need for you to check on the status of your request; we contact you as soon as a match is found.
Great Deals on Vacation Rentals
Vacation rentals give RCI® Subscribing Members travel opportunities at popular destinations at great prices. You can enjoy an additional vacation without depositing a week. You’ll find accommodations for a full week’s vacation, a long weekend and last minute opportunities. And there’s no limit to how many rentals you can book as accommodations are routinely available.
