RCI, the world’s largest timeshare exchange company, and Fairmont Resort Properties have just agreed to an exchange affiliation. Fairmont Resort Properties Ltd. is Canadian owned and is the largest developer of timeshares in Canada. They own Fairmont Vacation Villas in Fairmont Hot Springs B. C., Lake Okanagan Resort in Kelowna B. C., Fairmont Houseboats in Salmon Arm B. C., Makaha Resort and Golf Club in Oahu Hawaii, Costa Maya Reef Resort in Ambergris Caye Belize, Oasis Resort Casino, Golf and Spa in Mesquite Nevada, Fairmont Rancho Banderas Resort in Puerto Vallarta Mexico, Portofino Resort in Cabo San Lucas Mexico, and Americano Beach Resort in Daytona Beach Florida.
RCI, with 3.8 million members, is adding the Fairmont Resorts to their profile of some 4,000 resorts around the world. Group RCI is part of the Wyndham Worldwide family of companies. They have access to more than 73,000 vacation timeshare properties in roughly 100 countries.
This move will expand the options available to all RCI members and will open some new areas to explore. Plus, Fairmont will be able to use the strength of the RCI opportunity to help them increase new sales for timeshare units.
