[QUOTE=rlcarmichael;1012793]Some timeshares participate with both RCI & II. DVC was only II but went to RCI. If your timeshare is one that does both, you could join RCI instead.
RCI has many more trade choices, but I think II is more high end.
Personally, I don’t like the DVC exchange fees & points which I think are too high. For example the “signature selection” requires 1200 ponts plus $95 to exchange into. BLT Mk view Christmas week 2 BR is 615 points.
I can rent the Christmas week at von Trapp Lodge in a 2 bedroom villa for $5700. Or use 1200 points (worth $13,200 in points rental) plus $95 reservation fee $13,295. Even if you just consider the annual dues cost on 1200 points that like $6,095! That’s HIGHER than RACK rate!
I know there are cheaper exchanges (270 2BR red week) but that still over $3,000 in rental or $438 per night. I can stay at a lot of nice places for that kind of money.
Am I missing something?[/QUOTE]
Richard… I am completely unfamiliar with all of this, so I am having trouble making my way through the numbers… Are you saying that it is not an advantageous opportunity for DVC members when they trade into RCI, or ar eyou saying that it is not an advantageous situation for RCI members hwo wish to trade into Disney?
