RCI Becomes First Exchange Company to Offer Travel Packages in Cuba


Yesterday, RCI decided to offer a brand new opportunity for timeshare owners. The company has formed a new alliance with Cuba Travel Services to offer options for owners to travel to Cuba with an RCI Platinum membership. This is the first relationship of its kind within the timeshare exchange industry.

Cuba Travel Services offers a variety of educational tour packages that include charter flights to Miami to Havana, accommodations in Havana and Varadero, educational people-to-people activities, select meals, and assistance with travel documents and license requirements. These experiences will now be available to RCI Platinum members throughout the US. Booking dates for five or seven night rental packages begin this summer.

These unique itineraries will allow travelers to visit important historical and cultural sites throughout Cuba, while giving them the opportunity to interact with the local people while sampling local cuisine and participating in area traditions.

“We are so excited to be entering a new destination with our foray into Cuba,” said Gordon Gurnik, president of RCI. “With recent changes to travel regulations, there is an amazing opportunity for Americans to visit Cuba and experience a new culture. We know people are looking for ways to visit, with new data from MMGY Global reporting that 19 percent of all U.S. adults said they would consider taking a vacation to Cuba within the next two years. With that type of enthusiasm, we wanted to give RCI Platinum members a way to experience this new destination with this initial tour program.”

Cuba Travel Services is based out of Cypress, California and is a leader in “people-to-people” educational tours in Cuba. They’ve been managing these approved tours and have been sending travelers on exceptional trips for over 16 years. Their general manager, Michael Zuccato, is thrilled with the recently formed alliance with RCI and strongly believes that RCI’s members will love exploring Cuba through the company’s wonderful tours.

RCI Platinum members will be contacted soon regarding travel opportunity for this summer. As the program gains more popularity, more travel dates will be added to allow more RCI members to experience the opportunity.
