Private Channels are large membership-driven companies that offer travel services to their base members. Unlike traditional distribution channels (such as Airbnb, Booking.com, and Vrbo), Private Channels such as RCI are not open to the public and are usually only accessible via log-in.
When a traveler becomes a member of a Private Channel, they not only gain access to that channel’s network of vacation properties around the world, but also to its core programs. Many Private Channels, such as RCI, offer flexible points-based programs that allow members to collect, trade, and even borrow points to secure the trips they want. Different membership tiers also open up access to loads of other perks, upgrades, and benefits. Beyond those base programs, Private Channels generally try to simplify the travel experience for their subscribing members by bundling airfare, transportation, and other conveniences into easy-to-purchase packages.
VacayHome Connect gives our clients direct access to these exclusive members-only networks. Property managers can instantly connect with millions of new and qualified travelers they literally can’t reach anywhere else, and their listings never compete against each other.
