Redeeming MVCI points for airline tickets?

We have MVCI trust points that can be redeemed at any MVCI or used for any of the other MVCI programs.  I see that these points can be redeemed for airfare on most of the major airlines.  Although we love the MVCI villas and typically use our points every year, we also have a vacation home and might prefer to redeem MVCI points to fly there.  Anyone know if this is a good deal?  How many points for a ticket?  Does it depend on the price of the airline ticket, or how does that work?

    I am also a MVCI member, but not points. I don't know the answer to your question. However, there are many folks that will here: Marriott Resort System - Timeshare Users Group Forums

    I believe that you will find that you first need to convert your MVCI points into Marriott Reward points. In the past you could convert MR points into most major airlines, but not at a great conversion rate. I just checked and it looks like Marriott is now booking you directly into an airline flight. I am guessing it is not at a very good conversion rate. The best deal is Flight and Hotel packages where you can get conversions of 1:1 for MR points to airline points. Note that you can split the hotel and airline flights, they are not linked to each other.

      I called MVC to check on this.  2500 MVC points per person for a round-trip ticket to Ft. Myers, so it's not too good a deal, I'm afraid!  But maybe it would work out if there were no other way a person could use their MVC points and they would otherwise expire.

        Where are you coming from? that's a steep price tag.

          From FSD to RSW on United with a layover at ORD.  This can be an expensive route and can run anywhere from $550 or so up to $1300 round trip. I once even paid $1400 to fly this route on AA over Easter.  But it still doesn't seem like a fair trade for the MVC points.
