We are new to exchanging with II and have some questions. We own with Marriott in Las Vegas at the Grand Chateau and are looking to exchange for something in Paris, France in July 2009. I don't like the idea of depositing our weeks with II only to find out that it's darn near impossible to trade something over there. Has anyone had any experience with trading for Paris? Ideally I would like to stay at the Marriott Vacation Club there... but I think that's impossible.. I would like to have a confirmed reservation more than 60 days before we travel as we are travelling from Canada with two small kids. I don't want to risk not getting something though. We have to book our flights by Aug 31 to get a special discount they are offering. Someone please help! Thanks!
