Being a Margaritaville Vacation Club owner comes with a long list of perks, but one of the fan favorites is complimentary membership with the world’s largest travel network, RCI .
Go Beyond Your Resorts
RCI is affiliated with more than 4,300 timeshare resorts worldwide. That means that if the destination you’re looking for isn’t available through your ownership, RCI can help get you there. Plus, as a member of RCI, you have the flexibility of depositing points, searching availability, and booking reservations online.
Extend The Life Of Your Points
RCI is a great option when your points are expiring and you missed your Points Deposit window.
You can deposit your points into RCI beginning 10 months prior to your Use Year start date, and up to the last day of your Use Year. A minimum of 10,000 points is required to deposit.
Need to deposit more points than what you currently have available? Combine points from your current and future Use Year to complete your deposit. Forgot to deposit your points? If you’re a Platinum or Founders VIP owner, you’ll have any expired points automatically deposited for you – so you don’t have to do a thing.
Points deposited into RCI are good for two years from the date of deposit, extending the life of your points so you can use them for future trips to paradise.
How To Book
No need to write down the RCI website to save for later. Simply log in to your account and navigate to the Deposits & RCI tab. From there, you’ll be transferred to RCI’s website, where you can search for properties and book.
In addition to the usual points exchange, you can use your RCI membership to:

A Few Reminders
RCI is an exchange partner, and it doesn’t build or manage any properties. Accommodations at the resorts vary in size, services, amenities, and suite features.
Your VIP by Wyndham benefits won’t apply when booking your trips or while on site. The services and amenities will be different, though you may have the ability to book for discounted points through RCI.
