    Making the best of HICV

    Found TUG too late. In Feb staying at Orange Lake we bought into a low point thing quickly, paid cash (we had it). Not many points/yr, but it was a "special deal" I'm sure to get us in. Went to a resort over the summer, got a "good rate for points" on upgrading to 120k/yr. So... not so great a...

    HICV Williamsburg Interval International Deposit process (was Colonial Crossings)

    I have a 3 bedroom EOY Even unit that I only deposit in Interval International. I split it into a 1 bedroom and a 2 bedroom. Every time I deposit, they only deposit on the week that is on the deed. But I always request the weeks later in the year so that it expires later. It gives me that...

    HICV Myrtle Beach (South Beach) Attraction Price Sheet

    I've attached the Price Sheet for Myrtle Beach Attractions that I received from Holiday Inn Club Vacations (HICV) in May 2019.

    HICV Question - What should I do?

    I have 5 properties with HICV that I've listed below.

    Renting HICV Points

    I am considering buying a unit on the secondary market, and I'm wondering if anyone can tell my how renting points works. As best I can tell, at the lower level, you can rent 50% of your annual points, and you would pay a $4 fee for each 1,000 points rented. Does anyone know how much the...

    Warning/Issue with RCI banking with HICV for formerly Silverleaf Owners

    I know that I should have verified it or spotted it before (especially since I have made exchanges in my RCI account since) but last year (October/November 2017) I spacebanked with RCI my Silverleaf Timeshare using the owner's portal for Silverleaf owners. Checking my RCI account recently, I...

    I purchased a Holiday Inn Timeshare on 16 days ago. I was told during the sales pitch, that the 61,000 points that I purchased would give me at least 7 days and possibly more of vacation.

    HICV Orange Lake property - I survived without buying

    First post for me, but after 4.5 hours of torture, I can say I survived a presentation without buying. The salesman was a nice guy, but when I mentioned resale market things took an ugly turn. He got very defensive and argumentative.. at that point he just started talking mainly to my wife...

    My wife and I are attending marriage seminars at the Hilton Daytona Beach, and since many hotels (including the Hilton) are at least $100/night, we figure a timeshare would work. Wyndham Ocean Walk preferred, 1-bedroom deluxe (2-bedroom deluxe is fine), or if not WOW, must be on the beach in...
