RCI is one of the most popular vacation exchange platforms for timeshare owners around the world. With the ability to trade your points or weeks for stays at hundreds of resorts and hotels, vacation exchange is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the benefits of membership. You can use RCI for booking flights with your points and receiving incredible discounts on airfare.
Booking Flights with RCI Travel
RCI Travel is RCI’s program that gives members the opportunity to save even more on car rentals, airfare and hotel stays. However, in order to become an RCI member and use RCI Travel, you must first own a timeshare. If you are already a member, RCI says you can log in to your account, and while booking your vacation, view rental car and airline options.
