Reserving a Prime Week to Deposit

By 6:12 this morning, NCV was completely booked for the 2009 week. Second week in a row of being closed out. But while the II agent was looking, I overheard another agent say to another caller, "Why book a prime week that another owner would like to use, if you're going to deposit it?" Is that II practice or just a thoughtful agent? Didn't hear the response since my agent came back to tell me no go.

So here's my question: Is there any reason to do this? Is there any benefit to depositing one red week over another? Would a red September or October NCV deposit really not pull as well as a red August week?

All red weeks are not equal. A summer week will absolutely have more trading power than a fall week.

There is a travel demand index on the NCV resort information page on II's website (look to the right). Looking at summer weeks, according to that chart, there is very slight difference, but a difference none the less. There is a much larger difference for non-summer weeks

I was told by the GM at the Christie Lodge that all weeks 5-13, which are rated at 150, have 100% equal trading value with II. Consequently, they recommend not trying to book weeks 7, 10 and 11 for trading purposes. She said that she has confirmed this with II, as she talks with insiders at II and RCI often about trading power and ways to maximise it.


NCV weeks and rating:
26, 27 & 31 are rated at 150 (max)
30 & 32 are rated at 145
28 is rated at 140
29 is rated at 135
33 & 25 are rated at 130
24 is rated at 125
