I am searching in Interval International for a very hard week to reserve - Thanksgiving week at NCV. It's now in the flexchange time period so I thought to use my AC from my Timberlodge deposit for the exchange. I have been searching like a mad woman day and night but i'm thinking there might be a more efficient way of searching availability.

Have you found, in your experience, a better time of day to search? I was able to find a prime time in RCI right after the systems update but I can't seem to figure this out in Interval International.

I have had good success during flextime looking early in the morning. Usually 6:00 am (West Coast time). I think you may be able to get a week. Even though it is a holiday time, the weather can be rainy and cold and demand may not be as high as one might think.

Good luck!
