RCI has just launched a great new resource that will help you greatly with planning your timeshare exchange. It’s called RCI TV. It’s a new and innovative technology that enhances member experience by delivering important information by way of video.
RCI TV offers an entertaining and educational network filled with stories about RCI, products and services, and travel and resort information.
It’s hosted by the likable “Dan The RCI Guy” and consists of different channels you can click on to get more information. As of now the 5 channels consist of; 35th Anniversary, Meet RCI, New Releases, Previews and Destination Reviews. Unless you want promotional and background information about RCI you can fore go the first two channels.
The New Releases channel demonstrates how to use RCI’s new search feature, Enhanced Search. Enhanced Search has radically changed the on line experience by providing members with a broad view of real time exchange vacations available to them and the ability to search using filters to help find the exact vacation experience they want.
On the Preview channel Dan talks about new features to expect in the near future. Some nice enhancements to come are email notifications of the status of your current search, instant confirmations, side by side comparison or two resorts at once and personal resort recommendations based on your previous exchanges.
On the Destination Reviews channel you’ll find excellent recommendations of things to do on your timeshare exchange in different vacation areas. Each video is only about 5 minutes long, shot in HD and worthy of being on The Travel Channel.
Currently there are 14 different vacation destinations with many more to come. The videos on Hilton Head Island and Cabo San Lucas, two places I’ve lived and worked, included most everything I would recommend to someone headed there.
There will be a new channel called “Resort Showcase” to show off different resorts in HD. They currently have 50 resorts signed up but the channel is not live yet. This will be a great resource to use when doing a timeshare exchange, especially now that you’re able to see availability real time. Now, instead of seeing a few old photos of a resort you’re interested in, you’ll be able to see new HD videos of the resort.
Here’s what the president and CEO of RCI had to say:
“The response to RCI TV and our Resort Showcase channel has been overwhelmingly positive. The response in Mexico alone was so tremendous that we were asked by both developers and the Government in that great ‘vacation nation’ to develop a destination promotion along with an all-inclusive channel to help spotlight the many features that the all-inclusive resorts there have to offer. It’s airing now on RCI.com. This is just one more way that we are working to support and promote our affiliates worldwide.”
When doing a timeshare exchange we need all of the help we can get and RCI TV promises to be a very useful tool.
