How to Use RCI Points for Airfare

Updated April 17, 2017

According to RCI, it works with 300 airline partners so that its members can exchange points for airline travel. RCI reports that most members may use up to 33 per cent of their annual points allotments or 25,000 points, whichever is greater, up to a maximum of 250,000 points for airline travel exchanges. Points may also be used to discount flight cost.

Visit the RCI website. Log in to your RCI Points account. Log in is located on the main RCI home page.

Select "RCI Points Vacations" on the top navigation bar. You will be directed to a page that lists various RCI vacation exchange options.

Select "RCI Points Partner Programs" from the list of available exchange program options.

Review the "Program Details" and "Terms and Conditions" PDF downloads available here. These contain the most up-to-date information about points required for free or discounted airfare and any program restrictions. As of 2010, RCI members may use 33 per cent of their annual points allotment, or 25,000 points, whichever is greater, up to a maximum of 250,000 points for airfare discounts. Discount levels are then applied as follows: 12,500 points for a £78 discount, 20,000 points for a £117 discount, 25,000 points for a £152 discount, 35,000 points for a £221 discount, 45,000 points for a £286 discount, 55,000 points for a £351 discount or 70,000 points for a £429 discount. Larger discounts may also be available based on annual points allotment.
