ok I'm having a bad day!!!

where do I find if a resort is a 1 in 4. I thought it was listed in the RCI directory or on line under the resort directory, but I can't seem to find it today.

There are some resorts I have sent friends to that are the 1 in 4 and a few we have been to in the past few years so I need to make sure we dont exchange into them again before our time is up

thanks

Disclaimer: I won't know the answer even I know what 1 in 4 means, but in my ongoing quest to understand the TS business, what is 1 in 4??

You can only exchange into that resort every 4 years.

we've exchanged to Sunterra Scottsdale Villa Mirage, Sheraton Vistana, OLCC, and HGVC Seaworld which I know are all 1 in 4.

But memory must be fading. Don't remember if it showed when the unit went on hold or what.

I was just getting a feel for my brand new RCI Points account on-line and noticed that resorts which I found matches for dates/places I searched would list in the notations at the bottom if they enforced the 1 in 4 rule. HGVC LV Hilton and Grand Pacific resorts typically displayed this.

Currently with RCI weeks, if you try to book and 1 in X resort and have stayed there within the x amount of time, it won't let you book it online.

I know that it won't allow you to book there but if I want to list specific resorts or just do an ongoing search, how do I know whick are the 1 in 4 resorts. There are a few resorts we have stayed at, but I don't recall if they are a 1 in 4 or not.

Do I just list them and see what happens?

I still know there was a place where it stated the resort is a 1 in 4. Maybe it was on a confirmation??
