The new Vacation Planning Tools available at RCI.com provide you with more flexibility when planning a vacation. These new tools enable you to see your Deposit Trading Power before depositing, access the historical Exchange Trading Power of desired exchanges before exchanging and, upon depositing, customize a vacation search based upon your vacation preferences.
How Can I Identify My Deposit Trading Power Before Actually Depositing?
The Deposit Calculator enables you to see the trading power of your Deposit based on the Deposit date. The calculator shows the maximum trading power available for a Deposit, and the impact that timing of the Deposit has on its Deposit Trading Power. As long as you know your unit and week assignment, you will be able to determine what your trading power will be at the time you Deposit.
How Does the Deposit Calculator Work?
The Deposit Calculator is a simple way to determine the trading power of your deposit. Just follow these easy steps to get started:
Log-in to your account on RCI.com
Go to the "Manage Your Deposits" screen and click on the Deposit Calculator link
Enter the start date and unit configuration of your vacation week and click "continue"
The Deposit Calculator calculates the Deposit Trading Power of your Deposit and shows you what it will be if you Deposit that same day. It also shows you what your Deposit Trading Power will be if you Deposit at a later date, through the adjustment schedule. Remember, Deposit 2 years to 9 months in advance of your week’s start date to get 100% of your available Deposit Trading Power to use when exchanging. After that, your Deposit’s trading power will begin to decrease.
How Can I Determine the Historical Exchange Trading Power of the
Exchange Vacation I Want?
With the new Exchange Planner you will be able to see the Exchange Trading Power that has historically been needed to Exchange into a given region. Simply log-in to RCI.com and click on Exchange Planner. You can then type in the area and time period, and the Exchange Planner will show you the historic Exchange Trading Power that has been required for your particular search.
You will also be able to select a timeframe and see the current number of available units for a specific date/region.
Can I See Vacation Options and Book Using the Exchange Planner?
No. The Exchange Planner is intended to help you determine the Exchange Trading Power needed to exchange into a certain region at various times of the year by showing you historically what Exchange Trading Power was needed for those regions. It is inteded to give guidelines, based on historical data as to what Exchange Trading Power you might need to exchange in today’s world. When you are ready to search and book your exchange vacation you will still have access to other great search tools available on RCI.com such as:
- Advanced Search: Allows you to narrow down available vacation options with ease. You can select all desired criteria at one time and see only available units which match your search criteria.
- Favorites Search: Enables you to save your desired search criteria for vacations you search for often. You can then come back and search with just the click of a button.
- Ongoing Search: If a desired exchange vacation is not immediately available, you can open an Ongoing Search by paying an exchange fee and save time by letting RCI continue searching for you, 24/7, notifying you once a resort match is found. An Ongoing Search also provides prioritized access to newly deposited weeks in the system and can even be set to automatically confirm a resort match once it is found, making the booking process even easier!
And remember, booking online saves you $10 usd off the call center exchange fee!
