Using RCI Points
On-Line Tips

If you haven’t already set up your on-line RCI account, we highly recommend you do. It will open up a whole New World when making reservations. You can always call RCI on the phone at 800 338-7777 but once you start using your RCI site correctly, you won’t find the need to call very often. The site allows you to see everything before you choose anything and booking is easy, with teaching aides, tons of helpful information, and it costs less when you book on-line. If you’re already set up, here’s how to book. If you are not set up, see the instructions at the end of this article:

BOOKING RESERVATIONS FOR TREE TOPS OR FAIRWAY
• Go to rci.com and sign in
• Select the RCI POINTS VACATION tab
• Select STANDARD RESERVATION
• Select Option 2 STATE- and click on PA
• Fill in the DATES YOU WOULD LIKE TO GO and Length of Stay - It’s best to select a 30 day travel window
• Fill in Minimum UNIT SIZE and click Continue – It’s best to leave it at no minimum – this will let you see all the availability – if a unit is too small you don’t have to book it!

A list of available resorts will appear – find THE VILLAS AT TREE TOPS or THE VILLAS AT FAIRWAY and select AVAILABLE UNITS.

THEN, SELECT THE UNIT YOU WANT.

Didn’t find what you were looking for? – try shortening the length of stay. You will be amazed at how many times a 7 night stay isn’t available but a 4 night stay is – so stay 4 nights and save some points for another vacation. And, remember midweek stays and smaller units cost fewer points.

BOOKING RESERVATIONS AT OTHER RESORTS – HOW ABOUT ORLANDO?

• Go to rci.com and sign in
• Select the RCI POINTS VACATION tab
• Select STANDARD RESERVATION
• Select Option 1 REGION- and scroll down to Florida- ORLANDO
• Fill in the DATES YOU WOULD LIKE TO GO and Length of Stay – It’s best to select a 30 day travel window
• Fill in Minimum UNIT SIZE and click Continue – It’s best to leave it at no minimum – this will let you see all the availability – if a unit is too small you don’t have to book it!

A list of available resorts will appear – find the resort you want to stay at and select AVAILABLE UNITS (remember if what you want wasn’t available try shortening the length of stay).

THEN, SELECT THE UNIT YOU WANT.

As an RCI POINTS member you can also use all Weeks resorts.

• Go to rci.com and sign in
• Select the RCI POINTS VACATION tab
• Select RCI WEEKS RESERVATION
• Select REGION- and SUB REGION
• Fill in the DATES YOU WOULD LIKE TO GO – It’s best to select a Friday and remember length of stay must be 7 nights at weeks resorts.
• Fill in Minimum UNIT SIZE and click Continue - Again, it’s best to leave it at no minimum – this will let you see all the availability.

 


More time for less? Depending on your flexibility, check out available places less than 45 days in advance of travel. You’ll only find these awesome values in the “RCI WEEKS RESERVATION” tab. To try this, simply set your travel date to as little as 10 days from now, select a “region,” then “sub-region,” and keep the unit size on “no minimum.” Select continue and wait a few seconds. It’s that easy. You may be very pleasantly surprised. Regions where resorts are plentiful such as Florida, Mexico, and the Caribbean, usually have very good availability. Believe it or not, you’ll find great resorts for only 9,000 points or less for a full 7 nights! But Use an “in-school – out of school” mentality: When the kids are out of school demands increase, so don’t wait, book reservations early. When the kids are in school, you can afford to wait longer because there is normally more availability. Be careful if you request high demand locations with limited inventory, book early all the time.

Play around on the system! The most important tip is to simply go on-line, play around with it, and have fun. The site is extremely user friendly. And, if you have a question you can always call RCI directly or your RCI Liaison at the Villas at 800 528-5510.

If you are not already registered at RCI.com, just go to RCI.com and click REGISTER NOW. The program will walk you through all the necessary steps to register. Have your RCI ID # handy – if you can not find it or need help call RCI or your RCI Liaison at The Villas at 800 528-5510.

Meet Turkey Hill,
a Convenient
Neighbor to The Villas

No matter when you come to the Villas, you’ll find Turkey Hill Minit Markets to be a great neighbor. With most stores open 24/7 for gasoline and retail service, Turkey Hill makes it easy to pick up everything you’ll need for your stay.


Make a run for your morning coffee, breakfast sandwich, and newspaper, or stop in anytime for a grab-and-go meal. Stock your kitchen from a wide selection of snacks and grocery items, including the famous Turkey Hill ice cream, milk, iced tea, and drinks. You’ll also find disposable dinnerware, paper products, and other handy supplies—all with fast, friendly, and convenient service.


With Turkey Hill’s new Rewards program, you can also earn points on qualified purchases toward fuel savings at Turkey Hill pumps. Even earn double points on select beverages! The Rewards program is a great way to both shop and save. Ask a store associate for details.


Whether you schedule your vacation time during warm or cold seasons, Turkey Hill has what you need. Cool off after summer fun with ice-cold Slusheys and fountain drinks, or warm up after skiing next winter with hot chocolate, coffee, or cappuccino. Year round, you’ll find it all at the Hill.

 

 


 
In January the Pennsylvania Legislature passed a bill allowing table games in Pennsylvania. The Bill allows existing casinos to now add table games to their offerings to customers.
 
This means that the two nearest casinos to The Villas will be adding table games within the next year. As an update, Fernwood Hotel and Resort is still one of the applicants for a 600 machine license which, if granted, will be added to the list of resort amenities now available at The Villas. The casino would be built in the Event Center located next to the Lobby where owners currently check in for their stay. We will keep you posted as the selection process continues and let you know if we become a licensed PA facility. Until then, you can hop in your car and travel to Mt. Airy Casino for a first-class slots play experience while visiting The Villas.
