RCI Points Guide For Existing RCI Timeshare Owners Wanting To Convert
It's so simple If you are an existing RCI Weeks timeshare owner, you can cede your week/s to the RCI Points system, for a value allocated by RCI, to your particular timeshare ownership. It's a very simple process, and we use RCI's own, nice and easy paperwork and it is all done by post. You can add extra points to boost this value to the level you wish to own. Call UK 00 44 1444 473800 or Contact Eminent RCI Points Timeshare for details, RCI Points costs and current RCI Points special offers. Low RCI Points Conversion prices.
Ceding is rather like a form of permanent spacebanking with a value returned instead of weeks. Every year at the time of year you joined you get another issue of points. You retain the ownership of the timeshare and carry on paying the maintenance and have all your voting and other rights of ownership just as before. Should you wish to withdraw your weeks from the RCI points system in the future you can provided you give a years notice. Then you are free to use them every year or resell them as you wish.
