Hello.

Firstly sorry for my english...iam from Russia so english not my native lang...

I glad that i found such forum of timeshare users...cuz in Russians web i had found nothing.

My story...1 month ago i bought timeshare....its true i bought it fast....good traders know how to sell :). And now i trying to get any info about deal i have done.


My week is Rci points week. I payed 8500 euro.
Resort --- Holiday Club resort. Thats Finland. The week number 25, white week. But this white week give me each year 70500 points.
The MF are also not so bad --158 euro in year.
When i was making decision to buy or not....the reason to do it was the possibility to change my points of one week to several weeks on other resorts in the world. And as i understood i can change 1 my week on 2 weeks even in red seasons and even Gold crown resorts.
And if i will choose not so rated resorts and not red seasons(for example Asia good not only at winter....but at winter it has max cost) i can change on three or even FOUR weeks.

And of course other reason is Instant exchange for 9000pt or less
....give me a chance to get about 7 weeks.


Thats all what i guess about my timeshare...
Have i made good deal...i mean 8500 euro for such timeshare?
Was i right?
Is it true?
Or maybe i "flying in the clouds" and dont know some things...and some true about timeshare..



Hope that can get help from you friends.

Are you sure the maintenance fee is really only € 158 for 70.000 RCI points?

That sounds like an extraordinary ratio, that could even justify the very high price you paid.

But to be honest, it sounds more like an error to me, that a white week in Finnland would get so many RCI points.

Is it really RCI points or some other kind of points?

No..thats not error..You can check in weeks directory --resort --Holiday Club Ylläs 2 (#2425)
But maybe i was wrong thats not white week ...thats is blue week.....maybe
And the MF is 158 euro....so it equal to 220 dollars.

Week 25 is the last week of June (RED). The RCI directory does list it as 70,500 pts.
