How can I get multiple weeks of usage with Instant Exchanges?
If your lifestyle and schedule allows you or your family members to travel 45 days or less from your desired check-in date, you may exchange for a RCI resort for only 9000 Points!
How many Instant Exchange weeks can I get per year with my Points?
As many increments of 9000 Points you have available in your Points account.
As an example, if you have 36,000 Points allocated to RCI points account annually. Divide 36,000 by 9000 and you get 4. So, if you may travel up to four times per year on a short notice basis, i.e., you could get as many as 4 weeks of vacation with your Points.
