Deposit Your Preferred Points in Your Exchange Company (RCI)

Another way to use Preferred Points is by depositing them with your exchange company (RCI), and then using them to make reservations through RCI. If you would like to deposit your Preferred Points with RCI, you may do so up to 12 months ahead of the time you plan to travel. In order to deposit Preferred Points with RCI, you must need to contact Resort Com and request a deposit. When you deposit your Preferred Points with RCI, you will need to pay a full week maintenance fee. RCI will convert your Preferred Points to RCI Credits, which is the currency that RCI uses for reservations. Your RCI Credits will be saved for up to two years from the date you deposit them, so you can use them to make a reservation any time in that period. You can make reservations in any season through RCI, and you may also make reservations in the names of  friends or family with RCI Credits.

Preferred Points

Preferred Points are additional points that you have the option of using during the summer months from weeks 18 to 43 (May to October) in addition to the points that you own. For most members, these points equate to two full weeks. The great thing about these points is that they are a gift in addition to your annual Club Points allocation; to use them you just have to pay for the prorated maintenance fees for the points you choose to use. Simple! It might therefore be easier to see these points as your “optional” points as this benefit is there for you to use or not, as you wish. When you use your Preferred Points, you will pay the according maintenance fees for the points that you use, no more, no less! And if you don’t use them, no worries. They do not cost you a penny. Although you cannot bank or borrow your Preferred Points from one year to the next, you will be issued with a new lot of Preferred Points each …

Consejo Asesor de Miembros

Are You Interested in Being Part of the Tafer Member Advisory Committee (MAC)?

The role of the TAFER Member Advisory Committee (MAC) is to serve in an advisory capacity to TAFER Resorts and UVCI, your Club managers.  The MAC provides ideas and recommendations for programs, services and amenities, resort enhancement, and member services, both offsite and on property. Over the years many MAC suggestions have been implemented for the benefit of members and guests visiting the resorts.   There is no reimbursement or compensation for travel costs, rooms or other expenses. However, MAC members find that participation on the committee is very rewarding as it allows them to connect to others with similar interests, strengthen the membership community, develop friendships, and get to know resort and Club management on a personal level. To date, committee members have been selected from Club Caribe/Villa del Palmar Cancun and Garza Blanca Residence Club, and appointed by the Board.  As the overall membership in TAFER resorts has grown, a more structured procedure is now needed. To that end, within the next year we will be initiating a formalized process to introduce new …
