I have obtained an exchange week at Arroyo Roble Resort, Sedona, Arizona for the first week of June,2016 thru RCI. I may not be able to use the week.

Can I rent it out to the general public? I know that RCI lets one buy guest certificates but are there any rules against renting it out since I am not the owner of the week?

No, you could get in big trouble and have your RCI account taken away. You don't want that to happen, so don't risk it.

You can always offer it up as a distressed week in the Sightings/Distressed forum here on TUG. You still can't ask for reimbursement and must disclose that a guest certificate is required. Read the rules in the Sightings/Distressed forum.

Short answer is no,no renting allowed

The reality is if it's just a once in a while thing, you will probably get away with it. There is no rent police

Where you are likely to get into trouble is if you rent to someone that causes trouble at the resort. You know the guy at the front desk saying something like "I paid tc $1000 for this dump I demand better"

If you quietly rent it to friends or family, who understand the situation - you are unlikely to get caught.

If you advertise it to strangers on the internet, you are far more likely to get caught because they may turn you into RCI - either intentionally, or inadvertently.
