Renters, not owners (yet), but have questions...

    After having rented from timeshare owners a few times, my husband and I finally took the plunge and decided to attend a presentation. We decided not to pass on ownership at this time (we are also aware that when the time comes, we will purchase resale and not direct – THANK YOU, TUG!) We were “gifted” with Wyndham points and I have some questions about this and other related things.

    1. Where can I go to find out how many points I would need for a specific period of time at a specific resort? I’m afraid the Wyndham site isn’t very clear to me.

    2. Can I purchase or rent more points from somewhere (eBay, another points holder, someone here on TUG or elsewhere) to add to my own?

    3. What about RCI – can one become a member without being an owner? Has anyone done this? Is there any advantage to this over simply continuing to rent from owners?

    4. If RCI does not allow – is there anything similar to RCI that does allow non-owner membership and purchase/exchange/rental of points?

    I wasn’t sure how to search the site for these specific questions, but I will happily take redirection to anywhere on TUG that could provide me with answers. I think that’s it for the moment – TUG has always been a great resource so far and I know this time won’t be any different. Thanks in advance! :)

    Not a Wyndham owner, but here is the 10 part information article on the Wyndham system.

    You may want to check out the Wyndham forum here on TUG for more information.

    As far as I know, you can't join RCI without being an owner of an RCI affiliated resort or system. There are rental sites out there, but I haven't used them, nor am I familiar with any of them.

    Edited for spelling.
