    Hi all. I’m looking to purchase something in week 26-34 in Tahoe. On most of the resale sites these go for around 20k however it looks like one sold on here last month for around 10k. Was there something different with that sale or would you say 10k is kind of the number I should be looking...

    Is HRC worth it?

    New to Hyatt; not new to timeshares. However, it seems HRC is very difficult to use compared to the rest of them. Lots of questions.... and will appreciate it greatly if anyone takes the time to answer some/all. Perhaps others will benefit too though... 1. Basically, it seems we can book...

    Does anyone have experience with using Intervals E-plus on an exchange using HRC points? I have used E-plus with my Marriott weeks and if I confirm a re-trade within 60-day of arrival there is no additional fees for a larger sized unit.

    Do HRC Exchanges Get Priority In II?

    First, I fully subscribe to the TUG mantra: "How can you tell when a retail timeshare salesperson is lying? When his/her lips are moving." That said, I was in a Hyatt owner's update a couple of months ago and the topic turned to exchanges. The sales weasel said that because HRC is now owned by...
