Why is it that II has a relatively low travel index in Texas for weeks 51 and 52 respectively-San Antonio 85 and 95; South Padre and Galveston both 70 and 75, yet exchanges and getaways are next to impossible to get? Yes, I know the rhetoric from the folks at II saying that these are holiday weeks however so many other properties have a very high travel index for these weeks (i.e. Vegas is 120 and 135, Southern California is 100 and 110 for weeks 51 and 52 respectively). The same Vail fixed Thanksgiving week I'm trying to trade for Texas has easily traded into Marriott Grand Chateau in Vegas twice for New Years week 52 and twice to Marriott Maui Ocean Club so it does have some pulling power. Does anyone have any explanation as to why the travel demand index does not reflect this. Also, does anyone want to give any insight whether or not my trade will eventually come through? I will be in Austin anyway so even a last minute confirmation will work for us.
