Buying a Timeshare – RCI Points vs RCI Weeks Author: shinyumi
Since RCI Points are the standard for timeshare vacations when it comes to the point system, lets take a look at points versus timeshare weeks. First, lets look at the primary benefit of timeshare points which is the flexibility. With points, you are not limited to a timeshare vacation in the same place every year and at the same time every year.
RCI Weeks owners have their timeshare unit and week and that is where they will be each and every year, unless they decide to do an exchange to another resort. There is a lot to be said for knowing where you will be and not having to waste even an hour of your vacation time getting oriented every year. If your Weeks timeshare is the perfect spot for you and you dont want any surprises, then RCI Weeks is the place to be.
RCI Points also offer flexibility is unit size. Perhaps you always prefer to vacation with the same number of people. For instance, you might be a couple whose children have grown and gone and you like your special getaway with just each other every year. If you have a RCI Weeks one-bedroom unit, then you have the perfect excuse for not inviting people to come and vacation with you as you take a second (or third or fourth) honeymoon.
However, with a RCI Points system, you can choose any unit size that your Points allow and if you want more than your Points allow you can rent or buy more Points. Global Exchange Vacation Club offers RCI Points.
Almost always, RCI Weeks owners have to use their entire week annually. There is the option of banking the week though an exchange company. RCI Points members can book their getaways one night at a time. If they have the Points, they can even book an entire month. Another benefit that Points have over Weeks is that you can book your Points vacation any time of the year.
The only limitation is availability.
If you have a Weeks vacation at a high demand time of the year you are assured that your space will be available. With RCI Points, you have to plan ahead as the vacation spots are allocated on a first-come first-served basis. While you will have a priority window between 11 and 13 months out at your home resort, if you are looking to travel somewhere else or just can’t commit that far in advance, it is possible that you won’t be able to book your first choice resort during high demand holidays.
Your lifestyle will likely have a lot to do with which plan appeals to you. RCI Points offer perks that Weeks do not such as being able to exchange them for airfare or car rentals or cruises. Also, they allow for great last minute deals when there are Points sales. If you have a flexible lifestyle and can go on vacation with very short notice, then Points are for you. If you like the set time and place so that you can plan ahead and anticipate, then Weeks are for you.
