In a sticky on the RCI board, concerning RCI's policy of not allowing individuals to rent out weeks they have gotten out of the exchange pool, Madge writes:

"3) Support for timeshare sales and purchases -- Most people who want higher quality vacation exchanges invest in the purchase of higher quality weeks. When these weeks are deposited with RCI, they in turn provide exchange families with a better selection and quality of inventory from which to choose. Travelers would not be incented to upgrade their purchases if they could simply buy the "interest" for a fraction of the purchase price per year.

4) The demand among RCI members for certain areas and times of year is overwhelming (school breaks, holidays, etc.) This is magnified when non-members can compete for the same space."


This is EXACTLY what your members have been complaining about, RCI!!!!

You cite good reasons why members should not be allowed to rent out weeks. How about applying them to yourself?

I can't disagree with that statement. Nice job Aldo.
