An RCI "extra vacation" is an additional week's vacation that can be taken at an RCI affiliated resort without the RCI member exchanging one of their weeks or points, as is explained on RCI.com. Instead, the week is booked and paid for like a regular vacation rental.
RCI is the world's leading vacation exchange company operating under three different systems: RCI Weeks, RCI Points and The Registry Collection. Through their membership, RCI subscribers are able to trade points or weeks they already own in a timeshare or similar vacation membership scheme, for weeks in other resorts around the world. RCI guarantees that at least 35,000 vacation options are available to anybody depositing their week.
The Extra Vacation getaways are popular with RCI members, as they provide opportunities to take additional vacations throughout the year and have no restrictions on the number of extra weeks that can be purchased. Members can take these additional vacations even if they have already exchanged their weeks or points. Extra Vacation getaways can also be purchased with a Guest certificate and given as a gift to friends or family. As of March 2015, prices start at $399 for a week's vacation in accommodation with all the comfort and facilities members have come to expect and the reassurance that, should they find a better deal elsewhere, RCI's Best Price Guarantee means that the company refunds the difference.
