Ok,

I processed an RCI exchange thinking I could rent it. Have now found out RCI doesn't allow that. What do I do, what are my options? I am past the 48 hour cancellation without penalty.

What am I allowed to charge? At least the guest cert and exchange fee?

Thanks,
Justine

You can use it or give it away. Or cancel it and just lose part or all of your exchange fee (depending on how close it is to the start date).

If memory serves, you are allowed to recover the exchange fee and guest certificate. If you look for the Ask RCI forum at the bottom (no longer active) you can probably find a definite answer.
