Exchange Upgrade Questions

Good morning!

I have an ongoing request in for April 2013 for Aruba. I am noticing lots of units in II right now for April of this year. My question is, if I am confirmed into a unit at the Ocean Club and a Surf Club unit pops up during flexchange next year can I switch units to snag a 3 BR at the Surf Club? Do I have to pay an additional exchange fee?
If I am booked at Surf Club and want to grab a 3BR do I have to pay another exchange fee?

Thank you!

You can and you would have to pay a re-exchange fee unless you are a DC member which I think your exchange free for II would be covered.
