In 2021, I'm expecting to be perusing Interval International more for trips, and wonder if others think the upgrade is worthwhile. Basically, I've belonged for a year, and executed one satisfactory exchange vacation.

For me it has been worth it. I upgrade unit size for every trade.

I upgraded and the discounts on getaways and free guest certificates make it extremely worth it for me.

If you are hoping to upgrade unit size, the reduced fee makes up the difference quick. Plus the benefit of free guest certificates if that is at all relevant to your situation.

Yes, especially if you plan for Getaway purchases. But, I would only buy it at the time I actually was ready to make a transaction that was beneficial or what for an offer to upgrade at a discount.

I received an offer in the mail for 50% off Gold or Platinum. I am unable to find anything about reduced unit size upgrade fees either in the mailer or on the website. Is this benefit still in force? - Jacki
