I used choose2 the first time yesterday. Overall very happy. :clap: For me this was better then the AC certificate I have.

My eligible weeks are coming up and they were able to look at availability for choose2 into May for January exchanges.

Seems the reps have a list/grid just like the one online except it goes out further. What you see on the list/grid are the only places eligible for choose2.

Call when you have time because I believe this process is being done manually to determine what you can get and then they look for a match online.

I got 2 weeks that I felt were good. They might end up great if the weather is good.

It seems to be the same program as the old XYZ, just under a different name so they can publish the rules and market the program. In the past the grid usually went out more than just three months.

What is Choose2?
Go to front page of Interval "Deals" Choose2

http://www.intervalworld.com/web/my/deals

http://www.intervalworld.com/iimedia/pdf/Choose2_FAQs.pdf

If you're booking an exchange in an area that has 'excess' inventory, you can have another week (concurrent or consecutive or ???) by just paying the exchange fee.

Example: book (exchange) a room in Feb in Orlando? you may be able to get two rooms (same time) or two weeks (instead of one) by just paying an additional exchange fee.

There's much more.....search TUG for the choose2 (which used to be called XYZ) threads.

mainly, lower demand areas with excess inventory. Current grid (as shown on interval website) is all over the world and published out to March. Orlando, Spain, Virginia, and many many more are listed. You have to call to see whats available.
cheers.
