A number of owners want to get out of their timeshares simply because of the lack of flexibility. But the with exchange companies like RCI, you can now have variety with your timeshare. However, there are some things that you should consider to increase your timeshare exchange power to get the RCI timeshare resort you want.
Most timeshare owners believe that they have to know which RCI resort they want to exchange to before banking their week. This can a big mistake that can really harm your exchange power and make it much more difficult to get the RCI timeshare exchange you want. You do not need to know which RCI resort you are going to in order to bank your week. You just need to know if you want to use your week in your home resort or not and if you answer “no” to that question, then bank it as early as possible to increase your exchange power. You can then decide later where to use it.
The reason behind banking your week early is so important because of the pecking order of exchange system. This means that if I bank my RCI timeshare week today, and you bank yours tomorrow, and everything else between us is equal, I have priority over you.
Meanwhile, the first quarter of the year is when RCI receives the largest amount of people banking their timeshare weeks. This is because January is the most common month that HOA fees are due. It also serves to remind the RCI timeshare owner they need to do something with their vacation week. Thus, always bank next year’s week and put in your request this year to get ahead of the crowd to increase your exchange power and to tap into the greatest amount of available inventory.
