USING RCI WEEKS
As an owner at a VRI managed resort and as a Member of RCI, you can exchange your Vacation Week for another exciting destination available through RCI. Your Exchange Vacation can be for a different date and location than the Vacation Week you own. Just follow these three steps. Remember, you dont have to perform all three steps at the same time. Resort locations and dates are subject to availability.
You can deposit from 2 years to 14 days before the start date of your Vacation Week. But the earlier you deposit, the higher your Trading Power and the more opportunities youll have for a match when youre ready to make an Exchange. Depositing is free, and you dont have to know where or when you want to travel. You will be required to pay the maintenance fees for the resort where you own.
Do you own floating time?
If so, before calling RCI to make your deposit, contact your resorts reservation center to obtain your Vacation Week assignment.
Ready to deposit your Vacation Week? Call RCI toll free at 1-877-VRI-3334 (1-877-874-3334). Or deposit online at RCI.com. Please have the following handy:
- Your RCI Member ID number.
- The name of the resort where you own vacation time.
- The start date or interval number of the Week you own.
- Your unit type (studio, one-bedroom, etc.).
- Your unit number or name.
Whether you deposit online or by calling a Guide, you will receive written acknowledgement within 14 days that your Vacation Week has been deposited.
Once youve deposited your Vacation Week, its time to start planning your Exchange Vacation. The sooner you make your request, the more opportunities we have to find a great match.
Tell us your top destinations, even if youre not sure exactly where you want to go. If your plans change, you can update your request without penalty.

Withdrawing your deposit
Whether you deposit fixed or floating time, you may request a withdrawal of your deposit, provided that the following conditions apply:
