Did something change at II regarding eplus? I used to be able at add eplus at the time of making a reservation or sometime after making the reservation. (I don't recall the exact timing), but now I don't see the option to Add Eplus at all once a reservation is confirmed, only to Start Retrade, which charges me the standard retrade fee?

Is that accurate? How many days do I have after making a reservation to add eplus now? Do I have to add it at the same time or lose the option? If I do a standard retrade and pay the fee again can I add eplus then?

I believe you only have 5 days to add eplus after the exchange is confirmed.

Correct it is 5 days after confirmation - from II FAQ
When can I purchase E-Plus?
E-Plus can be purchased when an exchange request is initially placed and continuing up to five days after your exchange has been confirmed as long as the purchase is prior to the check-in date of the originally confirmed resort accommodations.

What is E-Plus?

It is a feature of II exchanges. For an extra $59 you can retrade your exchange up to 3 times. I always buy it. Sometimes it never gets used, but sometimes I see a completely different vacation available that I would have preferred and I make the change, but mostly I use it to upgrade into last minute larger units at the same resort.

I use it as cheap travel insurance and with the hopes of finding a size/view category upgrade. There have been rare occasions when I get an exchange close to the travel date that is the best possible unit and I don’t add eplus, but that’s a rare scenario for me.
