    Hilton points

    I am seriously thinking about buying a HGVC resale TS. Can you gift points to others or buy just points from someone else. For instance, if I am 1500 points short from where I want to go, is there a market to buy points from someone, so you don't have to upgrade and pay more MF?

    Hilton MF in Scotland and VAT

    I received my two annual MF invoices for 2019 and I see VAT added onto them. One is for 88.56 and the other is 3.85. Since I don't live there and typically when I travel I get VAT back, does this also apply to these charges? Has anyone tried asking for them to be removed or get the VAT back?

    Can anyone explain what the 1 in 4 rule means at HGVC (particularly Hawaii)? Does it bar you from staying at that specific resort again in 4 years or anything within the HGVC system? Thanks, ;)

    EBay poll...Private listings

I have heard sellers say it protects the bidder privacy but don't buy that given the bidder name scramble. I have heard buyers say it is done to allow fake bids...
