I asked a question a couple of weeks ago, about using my parents II account and was told I couldn't, because I wasn't on the account.

Well, I asked my parents, and it turns out I am on the deed (or whatever it is) for my parents timeshares, so they added my name to their II account.

Will I know be able to deposit a timeshare week into that account that my name is on, but not my parents?

Also, I understand that II has different rules for exchanges. If I deposit a one bedroom, but want a two bedroom, how does it work?

No you can't. II has very specific rules, you can only have more than 1 TS in an II account, if the names on all the TSs are the same.

Also, I understand that II has different rules for exchanges. If I deposit a one bedroom, but want a two bedroom, how does it work?

Here is the answer from the TUG's II FAQs
What size unit can I get with an Exchange?
A.
• With an “Instant” online exchange, you can search for any size unit that your week will match with. So if your studio can find an instant exchange at a resort which show a 2 bd available, you can trade for that 2 bedroom.

• With an ““Ongoing Search" / "Pending Request" exchange, you can only search for a size unit which is the same as your unit size ( or less). EXECPT: If you are using a 1 bd unit and want a 2 bd unit, you can get a 2 bd unit by requesting an exchange into a resort which have only 2 bd units.

You MIGHT luck out and be assigned a 2 bedroom unit with an ongoing search or pending request exchange. You just can't ask for it upfront.

I don't know if this helps but in my experience after depositing one of my two bdr. units with II I have been offered a three bdr. unit on several occasions. Not that I have asked for an upgrade, it was just that a three bdr. was available in the location and at the time I wanted. Maybe my sitiation is not comparable because there are relatively very few resorts offering three bdr. units.
