I am a brit member and whenever I log in to RCI I get directed automatically to the European site. hence I can't access all these Last Call offers (which would be useful as I usually vacation in America). Is there any other way of accessing them?

Most of us are North American members, so it seems that no one knows the answer.

My DH's cousin in England has the same trouble so we gave him our log in info & he used it to plan his Florida vacation (3 wks of last calls) last fall. He had to get guest certificates for each week but that was still much cheaper than what he could get from his log in. A few members of our family have our RCI info to search for their own "Last Calls" -saves me spending time searching & relaying the info then hoping the resort is still listed when they decide they want it.

My problem is just the opposite. I'm an American, living in the Middle East. My catalogs, etc. all come to me in Arabic! It's been difficult getting stuff written in English. And the charges are all listed on the Web in pounds. Weird stuff.

Peterjames2000,

Last Call is currently being tested only in North America. However, as Diane points out, you can confirm Last Call vacations as the guest of a North American member. Hopefully, Last Call will be expanded in the near future to include members outside of North America.

Diane,

I'd like to offer a word of caution about providing your login information to friends or family members. This access is not limited to Last Call or Extra Vacations. We strongly discourage the sharing of login information in the interest of security.

Yes I'm well aware of the security implications of sharing our log-in info. However we have only shared it with 2 sisters-in laws & a cousin & read them "the riot act" about sharing it with anyone else or logging in anywhere except at their own home computers. I have every confidence in them & if I had any reason not to trust them I would just change my password. They also trust me with their credit card numbers & expiry dates to pay for their holiday so the trust is mutual. I appreciate your concern Madge.

"Last Call will be expanded in the near future to include members outside of North America."

Any indication of when this is likely to happen?

chrisr,


Actually, that sentence read: "Hopefully, Last Call will be expanded in the near future to include members outside of North America."

I don't have a timeline for any expansion yet because the program is still being tested.

peterjames2000,

RCI's international offices operate with a fair amount of independence. I've learned from RCI staff in Europe and Latin America that they are offering their own versions of Last Call:

Europe offers "Late Deals" for non one-for-one weeks purchased within 45 days of travel.

Latin America offers "Oferta de Último Minuto" or Last Minute Offer. It is designed to offer surplus availability with a search window of no more than 15 days.

These programs may not be supported online, so you may wish to contact a Vacation Guide to inquire.
