I have three timeshares at one resort. Two are 50K RCI points and one is 66K RCI points. The resort is dual exchange company, i.e. it has both RCI and II. Would it be a good idea to put one of them with II? How do you do that? I would like to have something that I could trade into Marriott which I assume I could with II. Is there another way to get Marriott using the ones that I have now or some other way? MF are low.

You can trade into Marriott through II, but since Marriott owners get first priority for all Marriott deposits, you would be better off if you had a Marriott trader.

What resort do you want to deposit in II? Where do you want to trade in? II assigns trade value to deposits and not all resorts have the trading value for Marriott.

To deposit a week that's in RCI points with II, you have to take it out of RCI points, then you open up a II account and deposit it.

What is the unit size? 2BR, 1BR or studio?
And the season? peak or shoulder season?
If you expect to trade into Marriott in Hawaii, you will be disappointed.
If you are ok for shoulder season (non peak season), and non-Hawaiian resorts, you can try.

I agree, if you want to get into Marriott, you should get a Marriott trader.

Check-out ebay. If you stay on the mainland and travel in the off seasons there are really good buys. They are giving silvers away and paying your closing costs. You can pick-up a gold for closing costs. If you get an EOY, you can spread your MF's out over 2 years.

As stated, Marriott is II not RCI.

[triennial - points]
Biennial Timeshare -- Use It In Alternate Years, Pay 1/2 The Fees Every Year.

What does that mean? How do you spread your MF's over 2 years?
Biennial timeshares (alternate-year ownership, EEY or EOY) typically charge half the maintenance fee amount every year -- an estimated amount for the off-years & the rest (enough to make up the exact amount) for the use years.

Not all timeshares handle billing the same. Some bill the full amount for the use years & nothing for the off years, which is mox nix because it works out the same.

Ditto triennial timeshares.

Thank you for explaining that, you are correct.

For a Marriott EOY, they collect from you 1/2 the MF each year (ie if an annual MF was $1,000, then Marriott would collect $500 from you each year for an EOY).

Every TS company is different. I believe a Grandview EOY would collect the MF EOY and their triennial would be full MF every third year (no proration).

I have annuals, so can't speak from experience, but I do own Marriott & Grandview.
