    We have Bahamas reserved for 10/10-10/14...schedules change and we simply cannot use it. This is not our deeded week, but rather we exchanged into this week. What are my options? Its too late to convert to move the points to 2019, which would have been great. I cannot get a decent reservation anywhere else for any time I am available in 2018 without paying an arm and a leg for airfare.

    Thoughts? Is my only option to convert to cancel the reservation and convert to Interval points? Or, am I missing an opportunity some other way?

    You cannot cancel to convert to Interval points. II takes full weeks, unless it is Flex points or something which has a conversion chart for it - high, medium and low seasons and sizes. The only thing that I can think of is cancel and book something for friends or family to use. I had some SOs that would have expired this year and I booked 5 nights at Mission Hills in a 1BR Premium for our neighbours to extend their Thanksgiving stay there. They paid me for their $59 guest fee and that was it. You cannot rent it out and collect payment for it.

    What did you use to make the reservations? If StarOptions, you're more than 60 days outs, so you can cancel and rebook without restrictions for something this year. It's too late to bank the SOs into next year, unless you're an elite owner.
