[merged] No European Resorts or Even MAPS??? - New 2009 RCI Weeks Directory in Print
We just received our new "2009 Directory of Affiliated Resorts | RCI Weeks." It's down from 404 pages to just 244, only the thickness of a typical magazine. And here's why...
It now ONLY includes affiliated locations in Canada, the U.S.A., Mexico and the Caribbean.
There is ONE two-page spread that mentions the existance of affiliated resorts ("see RCI.com") in Central & South America, Europe, Africa, Middle East, Asia, Australia... but NO MAPS, no line item listings, nothing about them in the alphabetical listings at the back. I miss the maps... it was what made it a wish book for considering a future tour of Europe.
I realize most things are going paperless and cost-saving, greener efforts are a good thing. But we actually pull out our print directory whenever we're planning to travel with friends and we want to discuss options with them over coffee or dinner. So we do make good use of our print directory. Gathering 6 or more people around a laptop isn't quite the same (sloooow) and it's not even an option if there's no wireless wherever we are.
