    What's up with the lack of inventory in Interval International??

    Has anyone else noticed that 75-80% of the Interval International inventory is either 'Limited Exchange', only available to new owners, or requires a $1,000 per person meal plan? Many of the properties that were previously available to request via exchange are now unavailable due to one of the...

    Is your Timeshare affiliated with both RCI & II? Which do you use to exchange with most often?

    I have a couple of Timeshares that are affiliated with both RCI and Interval International (II). I find myself using RCI more often for exchanging. I enjoy traveling to the Caribbean and I feel RCI has a wider selection of non all-inclusive (AI) resorts. On the other hand, my HGV affiliated...

    A week’s stay at a timeshare for under $400 with RCI or Interval International

    In order to keep my costs down living in timeshares all year round, I use both RCI and Interval international for special deals. Usually this means that I book timeshares within two months of my stay. This is when timeshares that have excess capacity lower their prices. I will be doing a...

    Our Independent is signing w/ II

    I received wonderful news that our Independent TS in the Sierras was able to secure a deal w/ II. Wonderful news because I have not been thrilled w/ RCI. It’s our only resort in 2. The TPUs are never enough since we are tied to school schedule. And I do like II platform better. Can’t wait...

    Marriott buying Hyatt/Interval TS
  25. tahoeJoe

    Has Anyone done the math?

    Hyatt is both a weeks and a points program. As such if a weeks owner trades through Interval they use their associated Hyatt points to secure a studio, one bedroom, etc. The larger units require more points. However, in a pure weeks based ownership (Marriott, Vistana, etc) if one trades their...

    I am trying to exchange into Interval a week that I have. I know I've seen this before but what are they looking for when they ask for Unit Number. If I remember right it was a 4-character code like ABCD or something along those lines. Where do I find this code? Thanks in advance. :)
