BENEFITS DURING YOUR ANNIVERSARY YEAR
EXTRA OWNERS WEEK
During your anniversary year, the Club will grant you an additional Owners Week, free of maintenance fees. This will allow you to enjoy your vacation for two weeks during the year without having to wait for the 60 days to book bonus time. We cannot guarantee Club units but will do our best as the privilege is subject to availability, and due to limited inventory, it does not include stays in Aruba. Aruba Founders may use the extra week in any other club property of their choice.
Membership upgrade discount
If during the course of your anniversary year, you decide to upgrade your membership level, let's say from First Club to Grand Level or from a Studio unit to a one bedroom, you will be able to do so at a 25% discount.This discount must be issued upon purchase of the upgrade, so it is important that you let know your sales agent of your Founders privilege. Have in mind that if the discount is not applied at time of purchase, the Club will not issue any other sort of credit.
As a Founders Club member you will have a 10% discount on bookings made for your regular week during the anniversary year. In the case you have already used your week this year the credit will apply for your next owner’s week booking. You just have to request your discount to your customer service agent at time of booking.
Free unit upgrade
On your anniversary year you will receive a category or unit upgrade free of charge depending on your current membership level:
Gold, Silver or Prestige (former Platinum) members you will be upgraded to First Club.
First Club members you will be upgraded to Grand Level.
Grand Level Members will receive a unit upgrade. Grand Level two bedrooms or Penthouse will be granted a 50% discount to Royal Hideaway Playacar.
Additional week with RCI (every two years)
As Founders Club member, aside from your regular week, every other year you will be awarded one RCI week free of charge. With the additional week, you will have a better chance to book at RCI properties on dates that can be difficult and time consuming.
Keep in mind that in order to maximize the available weeks, the Club will not issue an automatic RCI week to you, as you need to contact your customer service agent and request it. Once you have done this, we will deposit the week with RCI, and then you will be able to choose among more than 4,500 properties in their offering.
More points in the Club Rewards program
After 10 years of membership in the Club, members begin to receive the privilege of earning points with each vacation they make, whether it is payment of maintenance fees, payment of category upgrades or unit type or all inclusive fee.
Founders Club members will begin to accumulate points for any and all reservations made as of January 1 of their anniversary year. The use of the Points Exchange System will be based on the rules and regulations of this program.
