Global Story of Successful Partnership


Vacations enrich people's lives. Vacations are so important that more than 6 million people have made a lifetime commitment to improving the quality of their leisure time through vacation ownership and vacation club membership.


In 1974, RCI pioneered the concept of exchange vacations for vacation owners. For more than 30 years, RCI has partnered with its affiliated and licensed resort clients to unlock the full value of vacation ownership and enabled members to experience a world of vacation destinations. By providing the critical component of flexibility, RCI helped transform the world of vacation ownership for resorts and owners alike.


Today, almost half of the world's vacation owners and vacation club members are also RCI members. Seven out of ten resorts around the world linked to vacation ownership are affiliated with or licensed by RCI. In 2004, RCI arranged over 2.7 million exchange vacations, more than three times as many as any other company.
