I currently use RCI and have been looking to trade into a few different Marriott’s. The RCI catalogue shows a variety of Marriott locations but I have yet to be able to see any inventory. Specifically I am looking at the Southeastern Atlantic coastal region (SC, NE FL)
I have seen references to...
For the past 10 years that I’ve had my Orlando and Reno Legacy weeks in the RCI Points program, I have always been able to use the upcoming year points as long as my current year is paid in full. It always is. This is critical because the resorts worth going to in the RCI system are always...
We have owned a nice Wyndham resale contract for about 2 years. A big selling point for that was being able to exchange into RCI for DVC. Now that DVC is partnering with II, we are wanting to purchase another resale contact that will allow us to exchange into Interval. So my questions are...
We have owned week 43 of a 1 bedroom deeded timeshare in Grandview at Las Vegas since 2011.
Unfortunately we have never been able to use it and so we would like to give it away.
We'll pay for transfer fees using LTT transfers.
Maintenance fees for 2022 have been payed and were 438.50$.
After 17 years, we are giving up our week in mid/late-September, the best weeks of the year in Las Vegas. This is a wonderful resort with reasonable annual fees of $438.
-Resort Name: Grandview at Las Vegas
-Unit Size: 1 Bedroom, Sleeps 4 (Grand 1 Building)
-Ownership Type: Deeded
I have a couple of Timeshares that are affiliated with both RCI and Interval International (II).
I find myself using RCI more often for exchanging. I enjoy traveling to the Caribbean and I feel RCI has a wider selection of non all-inclusive (AI) resorts. On the other hand, my HGV affiliated...
We have 4300 regular club points left over that will expire at the end of this year. We have no prospect of using them ourselves. When speaking with HGVC customer assistance, they said the only thing that could be done with them (other than let them go) is to deposit them into RCI...

My grandpa is a timeshare holder and has been unable to contact WorldMark The Club about exchanging points. He's almost 90 years old and doesn't have internet, so I'm trying to help him find some answers or get in touch with someone at WorldMark by letter or phone. I apologize for...
Looking to take over a family members timeshare who is going through a divorce, but trying to figure out if it will be worth it for us.
Don’t have access to the login members page so thought I would ask here

THIS IS SO AMAZING!!! First, let me just say Thank You for creating this, and to all members for keeping it alive. When we first moved to Rhode Island I couldn’t find anyone who knew a thing about steam heat and found a website called Heating Help that taught me all I needed to know. This seems...

I’m interested in purchasing timeshare points as a means to rent days/weeks as a side income. I’m familiar with Wyndham and done a lot of research on their properties and ownership. Recently, I was told about an owner who owns through RCI. She said that she doesn’t have to pay monthly...

An RCI exchange has come up for the resort we would like to visit. Problem is, the exchange check in date is 1 day after we arrive.
Has anyone ever had success in booking an RCI exchange and been able to move the check in day by one day??
Are there some good ways to book your vacations as HGVC member. Here are some observations :
1. Mobile app for HGVC offers limited view only. You need to use HGVC website to see much more info. So big diff in mobil App and website. Correct?
2.Mobile App does not allow RCI bookings.
Let’s share your HGVC and other TS portfolio(RCI, Wyndham etc). For each holding it will be nice if you can share Points, annual, bienial, MF approx, TS location, Buying price.
Just a short summary to tie it all together. Say your best holding and why. Any big regrets and why. Purpose is just...
Does it make sense to have both HGVC and RCI ownership for wider reach to resorts?
HGVC properties may be higher level than many RCI properties. But RCI has many resorts. Correct?
If the goal is more choices, can that be achieved by just HGVC to RCI selection or have RCI ownership. More...
Dear TUB members,

I recently converted my Hilton point to RCI.
I am living in Northern California- Bay area and do not see much of RCI properties to use my points.
Q1: Seems the RCI properties bookable thru Hilton is not...

Still a newbie owner here. Just got a call from HGVC RCI agent asking if I want to join the 2-year Rental Option program through RCI/HGVC. Can someone please tell me what the downside is? It's kind of like when we bought our property...everything sounded too good to be true. I only have 24...
Long-time timeshare owner with Hilton Grand Vacation Club. Mixed feelings. New to TUG.
Is anyone else about to lose RCI converted points for 2020? Despite the Covid pandemic, they are offering no options to extend points that were due to expire in 2020. Would appreciate a courtesy...
In order to keep my costs down living in timeshares all year round, I use both RCI and Interval international for special deals. Usually this means that I book timeshares within two months of my stay. This is when timeshares that have excess capacity lower their prices.
I will be doing a...
