1 in 4 rule

I was looking at my confirmed reservations and just now realized that I have two confirmations at the same resort with different dates and they have a 1 in 4 rule in effect. I may even been a owner at the time I made them but have since sold my unit there.

What do I do now?? I have already bought airline tickets for both trips and changing things now could get messy.

What are the chances the resort will figure this out?

If I cancel will I get my powerful trader back and do I have a choice of which week to cancel?

This is at Lawrence Welk Villas if that helps you answer. I also own RCI points if that would help me with the rule. I did not use points for the trade.

Please help with answers

Still hoping for an answer. Madge must not check this daily, is that correct?

Also I thought I saw read somewhere that the 1 in four rule didn't apply to points. Does any on know if this is true or not?

jperkins,

I respond to the oldest posts first. Be careful not to bump threads "up" because they actually go to the end of the line.

The one-in-four rule doesn't apply to Points reservations. However, when you confirm a Weeks exchange, even if Points are used, the one-in-four does apply.

If you were an owner at the resort when the exchange was made, the resort may waive the rule in your instance. I would suggest talking to a manager at the resort who is familiar with RCI issues to explain what happened.

Should you need help from RCI, please send an e-mail to feedback@rci.com with TUG in the subject line. The Communications Team will try to help.
