Which Exchange Companies am I affiliated to?

You are affiliated with: RCI and 7Across.

RCI is a global leisure travel services provider and is the worldwide leader in Exchange Holidays.

7Across is a Global Exchange System where Members can maximise the value of their vacation ownership with highly-personalized exchange services, exclusive travel discounts and real rewards.

Through affiliations with 7Across and RCI, LPA members can Exchange their week for holidays all over Southern Africa and the world. Exchanging your Home Resort Week means you first need to Deposit it for Tokens of the same value, pay an Exchange Fee and Book through one of the Exchange Partners or LPA Options to secure an alternative holiday. This also means that you can go on holiday to the destination of your choice and time that is more suitable for you.

In the event that you cannot go on holiday at all – you have a whole two (2) year window in which to use those Tokens.

*You would Exchange (7Across, RCI or LPA Options) your holiday for Tokens should YOU wish to go on holiday in the same period, but at a different time.


Which Rental Company am I affiliated to?

You are affiliated with: GoMelo. GoMelo is an Online Rental holiday system.

GoMelo is LPA’s rental company of choice that provides LPA members with the option to rent out their accommodation interval and earn rental income, or to confirm additional holidays on a rental paying basis.

Renting out your Home Resort Week means that you first need to Deposit your Week as a Rental option. This can be done via LPA’s Online Portal which allows you to select GoMelo as a Rental Partner, to choose for what rate you would like to rent out your Home Resort week and earn rental income.

*You would Rent (GoMelo) your holiday to a private buyer should YOU not be able to go on your holiday, nor are interested in a different holiday in the same period.
