A timeshare might sound as an appealing purchase for anyone, considering that timeshare presentations are full of promises and big expectations that leave most of their assistants blown away. Therefore, lots of families buy a timeshare with the anticipation to travel all over the world with it. Learn more on how to use the RCI exchange system to do so.

Timeshare Exchange

A timeshare exchange, also known as timeshare trade or timeshare swap, is a one-time trade for a resort in a different location. This can work in many different ways, but most of them require a hard work and a lot of patience.

Sometimes you have to be able to find another timeshare owner that is willing to exchange his week for yours, and most times you have to begin the arrangements for the trade with over a year of anticipation. However, there are several timeshare exchange companies that have the goal to facilitate that job for you, and RCI is one of those companies.

problems and complaints

Despite RCI is the biggest timeshare exchange companies in the world, you still have to be very careful before exchanging your week, as there are many things that could go wrong during the process.

Take into consideration that you have to book the resort as soon as possible, sometimes even up to two years in advance, which can be a problem for some families. Also, you must know that a membership fee needs to be paid, whether you exchange your timeshare or not.

    Is sad that these timeshare scams exist because the only thing they will do is scare off tourist, at least I do no return to Puerto Vallarta, salespeople are a really hedeache, they don't respect the rules

    What RCI does is this:

    You "deposit" your weeks to exchange them. If they are able to they rent your week to anyone they can for cash and they then keep the money. They fleeced you.

    Later, if you try to get them to make good on your exchange deposit they have already rented all the weeks they have, so unless you go way out in the future you cannot get what you supposedly own, because you gave it to them and they essentially took it, rented it and kept the money. They fleeced you.

    If the law were changed so this would not be allowed timeshare owners would become a valuable thing to them and the resorts, but as it is timeshare owners are a cash cow to be fleeced.
