If you’re an existing timeshare owner you will be familiar with the name RCI (Resort Condominiums International) but for those of you less well versed with the exchange market take a look at our RCI page for further information.
With over 4000 affiliated resorts on their books within around 100 different countries worldwide RCI are considered the world’s largest timeshare exchange company providing 3.5 million member families with top-quality holidays each year. However, it’s the Extra Holidays and Late Deals which provide members with the biggest benefits of unbeatably low prices and offers you won’t find anywhere else.
Late Deals and Extra Holidays
So, how can RCI offer these great holidays at astonishingly low prices? Late Deals and Extra Holidays are surplus availability that resorts put onto RCI’s system in order for them to fill their vacant rooms.
Late Deals can be booked up to 6 weeks prior to departure of your chosen holiday and offer RCI Members some fantastic holidays for hugely discounted prices such as these Gold Crown Resorts (All holidays available at the time of writing, 1/5/2014):
