So I’m reading some timeshare news headlines and I spotted one that said “RCI Enhances ‘Trading Power’ of Weeks”. Really? I don’t think so, and here’s why.
Quoting from the article, “Members can now see the exact trading power of their deposit week and directly compare it to the trading power of other deposit weeks at destinations that appeal for future vacations.” It also describes a “deposit credit” you will get if you exchange for something less valuable.
This is information RCI should have been providing its’ timeshare exchange members for many years. In the past most timeshare exchanges were like asking the Wizard of Oz behind the curtain for a vacation in Hawaii, only to get a studio unit in an off season in Detroit. (Is there a red season in Detroit, or even a timeshare?)
I wonder if RCI will ever show the timeshare exchange members what became of the week they banked with them. Like, if they exchanged it to another member or just rented it out? Have I hit a nerve yet?
Maybe it should. RCI needs to be held accountable for the weeks banked, exchanged, sold wholesale to week brokers, and just plain cashed in for renting them out.
Any unhappy RCI timeshare exchange members want to chime in?
In the meantime, go here if you want to sell your timeshare.
