    II raised their fees by $10 on 1/1/18 to $199. Earlier in 2017 (maybe August 2017) they eliminated the "discount" for booking online so brought the online booking fee to $189 to match the call in booking fee. So it was a $25 increase in exchange fee over the last year for booking online.

    Someone asked the same question on II's community page and I had to look at old post to get the info. Basically I commented that although RCI fees are higher and also continue to rise, at least they usually give multi month notice on price increases to give you a chance to book at the old rates and are pretty good at publicizing the increases. II on the other had usually gives less than 2 weeks notice on their price increases and tries to slip the information in, where unless you are specifically looking for the notification you won't find it.
