From RCI policies (http://www.rci.com/RCI/CDA/rciInfo/RCI_InfoDefault.jsp?d=RCI_Help&request=RCI_WeeksFAQ2):

If you confirm 45 days or more before travel, you may purchase insurance up to 30 days before travel. At 44 days or less, you can purchase insurance up through 15 days before travel. However, Vacation Insurance is not available less than 15 days before travel.

Does this mean that if you buy a last call 14 days before travel and a hurricane closes the resort, you lose your money? Or will RCI give you a credit or refund?

Dave H,

Our standard cancellation policy will still apply. If you are interested in the insurance and you are close to the cut-off date, you might ask a supervisor if BerkelyCare would make an exception to allow a short-notice purchase.
