I have an RCI weeks and and RCI Points Membership. 10 years ago exchanges were simple for good resorts. In today's market, it is nearly impossible to book nice resorts, even one year in advance, particularly during holiday seasons. Check out the all Inclusive fees. Let' s say you want a resort in Mexico. Well most of them are all-inclusive and have fees. Those fees are often $400 plus per person per day. When you compare those fees to the cost of booking directly through a site like Travelocity, you will find you pay LESS through the discount vacation site, not just on the all inclusive fees, but the fees plus the room you stay in. The prices are apparently inflated for RCI member so, instead of a deal, you pay inflated prices. Check out the RCI cruises. Then check on the fees from the cruise line. You will find it is cheaper to book directly with the cruise line, at least in my experience, and your RCI membership actually costs you more. Certainly don't ever click on their rent a car link when you book. The fees quoted are almost double what you get through the rental car company. The value of RCI a has diminished greatly. There are fewer resorts available. There are fees for everything - to trade a week, to extend you available weeks or points, to transfer to a guest. It is simply NOT WORTH THR PRICE.
