Is it worth searching in Interval after 5 PM ET?

We are searching often these days. I noticed most of the inventory is in the morning ET, with occasional interesting additions in the afternoon. Nothing new though after 5PM ET. Is it ever worth checking after that?

For flex, yes. I typically see flex bookings dropped in from time to time after 5.

Typically, interval wont wait until morning if someone uses eplus to cancel a close-in reservation. I've seen stuff appear at 11pm pacific sometimes and it usually is a week in flexchange.

Interesting. How about non-flexchange? What we are searching for is at least 6 months out.

I say not worth searching, after 4 am eastern time is when all of that is loaded. The earlier in the day you look the better has been my experience.

For flex change I have been driving many times to Florida, the day before using my eplus, sitting in the car while my other half is driving, and just keep looking and many great E-Plus exchanges have happened.

Def more availability in the early am. Closer to the weekend seems to be better.

I don't see any non-flex stuff appearing after 5PM Eastern. Of course YMMV, but I wouldn't bother if you are NOT looking for stuff that is in flex.
