Hi All,

I was wondering if someone could walk me through the different aspects of booking a vacation through RCI. I see the exchange vacations which I'm guessing is for points but what about the other two options? Also, I saw some vacations had a fee like 200 is that nightly and then even a cost for the inclusive benefits which I read was daily and per a person. Can I use points to book the extra vacations? Do I still need to pay if I use my points? Can I exchange points to RCI and then exchange it back to Wyndham?

I'm just a whole bunch of confused and would appreciate any and all input.

Thanks,
Ash

Exchange vacations use points (and you pay an exchange fee), Extra Vacations & Last Calls you pay a fee for but do not use points. Last Calls are only for vacations with a check in within 45 days.

If you book an AI you will pay an per person per day AI fee, that varies widely by resort, and dates. Some not AI resorts also have resort fees, daily usage fees, parking, cleaning, etc, etc. Read all of this before booking to make sure its still a good deal if there are additional fees beyond the extra vacation or last call cost.
