All,

I'm releasing a July 7-14 2BR, for 7,000 points. I hope a TUGger can use it!

Best,

Greg

Right after I released it, I went and re-loaded inventory just to see if it would appear immediately. It didn't.

Does that mean there is some delay in the week appearing as available, or did someone really book it in the one minute between release and reload?

I was surprised I didn't see it. Any thoughts?

Thanks!

I bet someone had an ongoing search for that week. Sorry to hear you had to give up such a prime reservation.

Normally HGVC reservations appear as soon as they are released in the Classic System. I see your two bedroom garden view room for July 7-14 2BR @the Lagoon Tower in the Classic system.

That's interesting -- I can see it now also -- but it wasn't there a couple of hours ago. So there must be some minor time lag before inventory gets restored....

Thanks very much!

Greg

HGVC has NO ongoing search function.

Really? Is there a waitlist option?

No waitlist either.

You get access to whatever inventory is the system at any given time.

That is why if you need something specific every year you need to own either an event week (automatically booked for you) or home priority so you can book 3 months prior to all other non-home member.

This is with HGVC only. Can can use your HGVC points in RCI and set up an ongoing search in RCI. However NOT in HGVC.
