I just booked an exchange into a 1+1 target area - it looks like there are many units available in the same area on extra vacations for where I exchanged to - so my question is can I use the 1+1 and add a guest certificate so my sister can use it for around the same time we are there?

TIA

If you are going to be there when the exchange for her starts, just book two units in your name and check in for both units. List her as the one staying in the other unit. If she present, they will usually use her credit card for the unit she will be in.

Thanks Sandy - She may get there first

I think we are planning on checking in later then she will, that is why i need to find out about the guest certificate. Since we wont be there till late (maybe even the next day) i dont want her stuck.

Madge?? Whats the official rule on this??

THANKS
Paula

Paula, I have had that situation, too. I just call the resort and make arrangements with them. I have never had a resort refuse to let my guest check in first. My guests have always been asked to present their id and credit card. Some resorts have wanted a fax from me giving them permssion to check in first, others wanted me to mail them a letter, some only want a phone call. I have always copied my check in documents to send with my guest. Some resorts do not require a guest certificate even if you are not going. Check with the resort in question.

Paula,

Some resorts may not have a problem with your guest arriving first, but others do -- I know this from personal experience. Do contact the resort directly to find out. When in doubt, simply add an RCI Guest Certificate for $49 US/$58 CAD. You'll need to contact an RCI Guide to do this - One Plus One weeks are not accessible online.
