Making The Most Of Your Options Points
RCI Options Brings Your Holiday To Life
As a fully paid up member of RCI Options, you have access to holidays of the same value as your RCI Options points on a yearly basis. Each of the resort units have a different value. These values vary depending on the following:
- Time of year High Peak (Peak, Red, White week).
- Size of the apartment or unit.
- Quality of the resort and unit.
- Location of the resort.
- Resort amenities available to guests.
- 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 RCI Options points.
To make sure you have enough RCI Options points to match your request, deduct the RCI Options points of the desired resort from the RCI Options points you own. If you have more points, you qualify. If you have less, you will not qualify but may purchase more.

- Unit size and type of unit
The unit size is determined according to the number of bedrooms in the unit.

The Membership Maintenance Feess
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 RCI 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.
