Bengaluru, Karnataka, India (August 9, 2011) — RCI, the global leader in vacation exchange and part of the Wyndham Worldwide family of brands (NYSE: WYN), has announced the launch of the RCI Cruise Exchange Program in India. With this program, timeshare owners will now be offered dream holidays on the high seas, which will take members to some of the most fascinating parts of the world.
With more than a thousand cruise itineraries to choose from globally, the RCI Cruise Exchange Program gives RCI members many options. Members can exchange their timeshare week for a discount on the price of a cruise on up to four cabins per exchange booking. Alternately, if a member has already used their deposited week, they can still save on their cruise holiday with RCI’s special members-only rates.
“We are delighted to present this exciting new holiday option to timeshare owners in India, especially given that cruise holidays are the fastest growing area in vacation travel,” said Radhika Shastry, managing director, RCI India. “The advantages of the RCI Cruise Exchange Program extend beyond holidays in great locations, opening up a brand new world of holidaying to our members that combines the best of resort and touring experiences. We believe this will greatly enhance the timeshare experience for our members.”
RCI is the worldwide leader in vacation exchange with over 4,000 affiliated resorts in approximately 100 countries. RCI pioneered the concept of vacation exchange in 1974, offering members increased flexibility and versatility with their vacation ownership experience. Today, through RCI® Weeks, the traditional week-for-week exchange system, and RCI Points®, the industry’s first global points-based exchange system, RCI provides flexible vacation options to its 3.8 million RCI subscribing members each year.
