What are RCI points?
RCI Points is a type of timeshare ownership in an RCI affiliated resort. RCI has assigned a point value for your specific resort unit.

The points can be exchanged through RCI for shorter or longer vacations in any unit size desired, as well as for travel-related products, including airfare, cruises, car rental, and hotel reservations which are know as Point Partners.
