How to avoid losing your deposit
Your deposited week of ownership is what enables you to take an Exchange Holiday with RCI, so it’s important that you use it during its three-year Travel Window (see Weeks Explained topic). If you are unable to do so, the good news is that there are a variety of options to help extend your deposit and and avoid losing out on the holiday you deserve.
Combine Your Deposits
You can combine your expiring Deposit with another Deposit or Deposit Credit. When you combine Deposits and/or Deposit Credits, the travel window of the new Combined Deposit, depending on which option you choose, is good for 12 or 24 months from the date they are combined. To find out more about combining deposits see the related topic link below.
And if you are a Platinum member, you can earn member rewards when you combine your deposits.
How to Extend your Deposit
You can extend your deposit within the section called ‘Manage my deposits’ or by calling us. Once you’ve signed in, click on the person icon in the top navigation bar and select ’Manage my deposits’. From this page select the 'EXTEND' tab. Choose the deposit you want to extend from the drop down menu and then select the extension option you want. If you have not previously extended this deposit, you can choose to do so for 1 month, 3 months, 6 months or 12 months. The new End Date will be displayed in the extension option. Once you’ve confirmed your choice using the ‘Extend’ button you simply need to complete the payment section.
Note: You can only extend your deposit for a total of 12 months. So if you select to extend your deposit 6 months, but then wish to extend it again near to the expiry date, you will only be offered to extend it for a further 1, 3 or 6 months.
Please note that once your deposit has expired it cannot be extended.
Your new Start and End Date will also be displayed in the Travel Window when you verify your details.
