Tips on making reservations through RCI


RCI offers a great alternative to holiday accommodation particularly when you are looking at destinations beyond the WorldMark South Pacific Club Resorts. RCI membership can increase your holiday choices, destinations, properties and holiday benefits.

RCI is a separate company to WorldMark South Pacific Club so it is important to have a good understanding of RCI’s reservation processes and how they can work for you. Here are a few tips:

Step 1 – Decide on your holiday 

It is best to consider a holiday experience first rather than a specific destination or resort.  The www.worldmarksp.com website is an excellent tool which showcases a diverse selection of RCI holiday options.

Step 2 – Let RCI do the work for you

When you know the type of holiday you want, the easy-to-use online search tool can help you narrow your options or you can call an RCI reservation Consultant on 1300 737 667 AU or 0800 737 667 NZ.  If there is no immediate option available I recommend starting an

On-going search

This is a fantastic searching tool that I feel is underutilised by WorldMark/RCI members.

Remember that RCI exchange accommodation is supplied by other RCI members surrendering their traditional timeshare accommodation. If there is no immediate match it may simply mean that a member has not yet deposited their week of time into the RCI system.

So, it makes perfect sense to place an on-going search either online or over the phone with an RCI consultant. The computer will search 24 hours a day 7 days a week until a suitable match is found! The best thing is that you can place multiple searches in the system and you can place a search up to 2 years in advance!  – So, what are you waiting for? Get started now!

Step 3 – Confirm your holiday exchange accommodation and then enjoy your holiday

Once a holiday match is found, you will need to pay the RCI exchange fee, transfer your WorldMark Vacation Credits plus a housekeeping.  Then, dust off your suitcases, pack your bags and get your passport ready! Happy holidays

    I have always wondered how we get notified when a match is found. Do I have to keep checking or will I get an email ?
