"Serve Others as You would Serve Yourself"            
You will be allocated a number of Points according to the criteria of timeshare you own.  The criteria used  is as follows (this a rough guide but it is pretty accurate and will give you a good idea of how the exchanges  work. There are a number of exchange companies and each has their own methods of awarding the number of  Points to the respective timeshares and for the grading of the resorts. For example some use Stars and  some use Points. For this exercise we will use the RCI system.  The resorts are divided into Gold Crown (5-star quality); Silver Crown (3-star quality) and Lifestyle  (standard family type resort). The size of your timeshare module also has a bearing, be it a one bedroom,  two-bedroom or three bedroom unit. The time of the year is also a factor, for example a School holiday  period will attract more Points than an out-of-season timeshare module.  Therefore, if you own in a two bedroomed Gold Crown resort in a school holiday you will receive more RCI  Points than you will if you owned in a two-bedroomed Lifestyle resort in a school holiday period.   Timeshare holiday units are priced according to the size of the unit, the amenities provided by the resort,  the location of the resort and the season in which the week is sold. For example, in-season weeks will cost  more than out of season weeks.  The exchange works like a banking account … the number of Points that you deposit into the “Spacebank” is  the number of Points you can withdraw to go to another resort at another time of the year. Peak holiday  Periods can ONLY be exchanged into Peak holiday periods at another resorts. You cannot own an out-of-  season week and expect to go into a Peak period.  If, for example, you have 3000 RCI Points and you choose a time and resort that has 2500 Points you will  have 500 Points left over in your Spacebank. If you do not use your Points for the first year you can  accumulate your Points and have double the amount for the next year. You can accumulate your Points    depending on the exchange system you use.  The exchange systems give you access to exchange into any of their more than 4 000 resorts in over 100 countries around the world as well as to over 200 resorts in Southern Africa. Holiday ownership gives you the opportunity to fix your future holiday costs at today’s prices. Exchange company Points must not be confused with other commercial Points Clubs.  Extra Holidays Bonus  Once you’ve deposited your timeshare into the Spacebank, you’ll be eligible for Extra Holidays Bonus every year. These may be booked at selected at affiliated resorts around the world, subject to availability. YOUR POINTS WILL NOT BE USED for this booking, but you will pay a special Bonus fee that, on average, is lower than the same accommodation on the open market. Extra Holidays Rentals Extra Holidays Rentals are available to all exchange members, whether they have deposited their ownership or not. You can select from any of their rental portfolio of resorts around the world, paying a special member-only rate. This accommodation can cost up to 50% lower than the same accommodation on the open market. The exchange companies have sourced local and international rental properties for your benefit, to ensure you can travel to the best destinations in any season without using your Points. You can enjoy as many  Rental holidays as you like. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION Contact Details: PO Box 6235 Westgate 1734, Republic of South Africa.
