I have enjoyed the wisdom shared on these boards over the years!

I have a question that I can't figure out where to post, because it doesn't fit into one exchange company:

What is the best exchange company for late exchanges (excluding RCI, which my TS is not on)?
I want to deposit a week in Las Vegas beginning 11/30/18. Is there an exchange company that gives better late exchanges?

I'm leaning on the community, because I don't have time to research them all (II, SFX , DAE... and others I don't know about!)

Thanks!

Karen

My timeshare is Tahiti Village, Las Vegas, and I am a weeks owner, so I'm not on RCI, just II.

(The Owner Update salesman tried to get me to change to points for $7,000 so I could be on RCI - like really?? I can't imagine anyone falls for that!!)

Thanks Denise!

The best chance to get a late exchange is by working with an exchange company that has a robust inventory, which is going to necessarily steer you to the two big dogs--II and RCI. While RCI has the largest number of resorts it works with, II is generally considered to have not only a large number of resorts in its portfolio, but also a very high quality inventory. It works with Marriott, Vistana/Starwood, and Hyatt. RCI works with Hilton and Disney and, more recently, Welk.

My own inclination would be to recommend II. They've always has good choices for me, even if planning within 90 days.

I would use II, better resorts, more inventory. Be aware you will be making a Flex Deposit which means you need to deposit your week 59 to 14 days prior to the check-in date (no deposits are accepted less than 14 days before your week). You´ll then use the Flexchange service to confirm an exchange. I have found excellent trades in the flex time range. You will not be able to put in a request, you will have to check each day to see availability.

You only have a couple of weeks to join, and get the week you own confirmed so you can deposit it.

That makes a lot of sense, to go with a company that has more inventory, hence probably better choices.
Thanks WalnutBaron and Paulina, for the reassurance you have found good selections in Flexchange with II!
