  • Accumulating unused holiday time from the last two calendar years.
  • Adding it to this year's week
  • Borrowing a holiday week from next year.

Remember: Levies/maintence fees need to be paid in full, if you want to borrow points.

RVI Options Brings Your Holiday To Life

As a fully paid up member of RVI Options, you have access to holidays of the same value as your RVI Options points on a yearly basis. Each of the resort units have a different value. These values vary depending on the following:

  1. Time of year High Peak (Peak, Red, White week).
  2. Size of the apartment or unit.
  3. Quality of the resort and unit.
  4. Location of the resort.
  5. Resort amenities available to guests.
  6. Comments received from members about the resort.

Here is an example:
In the table below, staying in a twobedroom unit (this will sleep four people privately up to a maximum of six and in some resorts includes a sleeper couch that is only suitable for children under ten) at this resort, during a red week, is equal to 4 200 RVI Options points.

To make sure you have enough RVI Options points to match your request, deduct the RVI Options points of the desired resort from the RVI Options points you own. If you have more points, you qualify. If you have less, you will not qualify but may purchase more.

Example
Resort, KwaZulu-Natal, Durban, Durban Sands, Near Durban Check-in Saturday, Occupancy 0/04 1/04 2/06

How Your RVI Options Table Works

  1. Seasonal designation
    The RVI Options resorts are divided into seasons based on the demand of the holiday period and are indicated as follows:

    Blue time - Low demand
    White time - average demand
    Red time - High demand
    Peak times - 1, 2, 3, 4 Highest demand
  2. Unit size and type of unit
    The unit size is determined according to the number of bedrooms in the unit.
  3. Quality of accommodation
    Each resort is graded according to various resort quality standards and from comment forms received from RVI members who have stayed at these resorts. Service, maintenance, quality, amenities and location are the most important factors making up the grading. The resorts are graded.
  4. Points required
    You will be in a position to establish exactly how many RVI Options points you need to book into a particular resort, at a specific time of the year, by cross referencing numbers 1 and 2 above.

The Membership Maintenance Feess

Membership Fees

Payment of fees Annual levies/maintenance fees are payable before your anniversary date whether the product points have been utilised or not. Your anniversary date is the first day of the month in which your contract was fully paid up and sent for processing.

If you are uncertain, please contact your local servicing office and they will gladly advise you of the correct month.

Please note that you may not use your RVI Options points for a holiday until all annual levies/ maintenance fees are paid in full. This also applies to points borrowed forward - you will have to pay these in advance.
