however we give you here a brief outline of the main points of the system.
The system can be likened to a banking system with deposit and withdrawal facilities. To make an exchange deposit into the "R.C.I. Spacebank", you contact your Resort Manager, who will allocate you a booking for a "week" which you can then "Bank" with R.C.I. The Resort office can "bank" for you, if you wish. Your spacebank deposit gives you a "credit" in the bank which is good for 2 years forward or 1 year back. (i.e. a 2011 holiday can be deposited and drawn against in 2010). Your credit is not dependent on someone using your deposited time. Having made your deposit, you may request a holiday at any of the 4300 Resorts in over 110 countries worldwide, at any time of the year, regardless of the time of the year you own in, or the particular week you banked.
There are 14 resorts in N Z, 51 in Australia, and 4 in Fiji.
Requests may be lodged from 2 years ahead, to as little as 2 days before you wish to holiday, but obviously the earlier the better. R.C.I. do the rest for you and confirm your request as soon as your choices are available in the spacebank.
R.C.I. is basically a club and has an annual membership fee ($105, or $61p/a with 5yr deal). When you request an exchange, R.C.I. charge an exchange fee for processing your request. This is - $199 for New Zealand, Australia, and Fiji (per week exchanged) -$309 for Worldwide exchanges. If you log onto RCI.com and do the exchange online, the exchange fees are $10 a week cheaper. There are no accommodation charges or adjustments at all. Your R.C.I. membership includes many benefits to enhance your ownership including Cruise Exchange, Tour Exchange , RCI Travel , discounted rentals and bonus weeks from $300, all of this you can find on www.rci.com
