How is this different than RCI/II?
Q: How is this different than RCI/II?
A: RCI/II is a 3rd party company that charges an exchange fee to transfer to one of their resorts. They do not own any resorts so they are a fee based company. Club Exploria provides FREE internal exchanges to over 40 network resorts and hundreds of additional resorts through our marketplace exchange. RCI/II is still available as an option through the Club Exploria program for an additional fee along with access to hotels, cruises, car rentals and more through the Club Exploria Marketplace.

Will I still have to pay maintenance fees?
Q: Will I still have to pay maintenance fees?
A: Club Exploria has two fees – the Club dues that cover the annual operations and the Common Assessment Fees that cover the costs to operate and maintain the accommodations and facilities at the Club Exploria destinations. Everyone pays Club dues. The good news is that the Common Assessment Fees are calculated based on how many EXPOs you have. The Common Assessment Fees are made up of a base fee and a small fee for every EXPO you own. You pay only one base fee regardless of how many timeshare interests you own. This means You can double the number of EXPOs without doubling your maintenance fees! Club Exploria also has a program where you can pre-pay 1/12th of the estimated fees each month so you don’t have a large bill at the end of the year.
