Need Help With Interval "Getaways"

Hi! I have a few questions about Intervals getaways and I wasn't sure where to post my question so I'll try here. If this is not the right place, please move it to the right place.

Here are my questions:

1) Can you I purchase a Getaway, but put the reservation in my parents name? I would not be going on the trip.

2) If the reservation starts on Saturday and I cannot arrive until Sunday, is that allowed? Also, if I want to check out a day early is that a problem? I know that I would be paying for the whole week, we just can't stay the whole week.

If you will not be there at check in with your parents then you need to buy a guest certificate, $39, when you purchase the Getaway.

You can check in late and leave early, but you definitely need to let the resort know when you are checking in (so they don't think you are a no-show and give away your reservation) and it is nice to let them know when you are leaving (so they can clean your unit early for the next guest).
