For any bookings with a check in date from August 1 2020 to March 31 2021, we will support you to cancel or change your booking within 30 days of travelling if:

  • Our affiliated resort is closed;
  • There are travel restrictions preventing you getting to the resort, such as flight cancellations;
  • You, or a member of your travelling party, unfortunately have an underlying health condition which could increase the risk of COIVD-19 infection and therefore could prevent you, or they, from travelling; 
  • There are government or local authority restrictions in place which prevent you from enjoying your holiday, as planned.

In the above circumstances, if you wish to amend your booking to an alternative destination, please call us. Our Guides know which resorts are currently available where and when and will help you find an alternative destination to enjoy.

If you would prefer to cancel, for Exchange Holidays, we will credit your RCI membership account with the full amount of points or trading power used to make the booking, plus the full exchange fee and full Points Protection or Trading Power Protection fee (if applicable).

For Extra Holidays, we will credit your RCI membership account with the full amount paid to date.

You have six months from the date of cancellation to use this credit for an Exchange or Extra Holiday to a destination of your choice.

Your travel may occur after this time, but for Exchange Holidays, must be within the valid window of either your deposited week or points originally used. You must be an RCI member at the time of your rescheduled holiday.

For any booking you make, we advise you to check the resort website before travelling, or to contact them directly if you have any concerns^

If you have booked a hotel, car rental, cruise or activities through RCI Travel†, RCI Cruise° or one of our third party partners, you will need to contact the individual provider for their own cancellation policy.

We’re committed to supporting as many of our members as quickly as possible during this unprecedented time and are experiencing very high call volumes, and in this time of uncertainty, we encourage you to review all country-specific travel advisories and recommended guidelines before you travel.
