Is a trade in the Royal Resorts in Cancun REALLY that difficult with II?
I have been trying for over 7 months with nothing.

What dates?

I see the Royals all the time with my North Carolina summer weeks, but perhaps you are looking for specific dates that aren't easy to get. :shrug:

Those weeks are typically very tough to get anywhere in the caribbean/Cancun, especially high quality resorts. What are you using for the request?

We own at that time and always go. Using a week 24 at RM to trade back in and so far no luck. I am wondering if more people are trying to rent than trade this year with the prices of air fares.

I think the trade will eventually come through.

Thanks, I needed some reasurrance. I would think it would come through and hopefully for the week we need. With all the rentals out there I am hopeful.

Do you need a 2 bedroom or will a 1 bedroom do? What has worked for me (but in lower demand weeks) is to accept a 1 bedroom and and make my travel arrangements. Then in the flex change period I see 2 bedrooms available that I can exchange for instead. Of course this requires a unit to search with and also losing your initial exchange fee. The same approach worked for a Hawaii summer exchange.

I need a 2 bedroom so this will not work for me. I have already made the air reservations and if nothing come through then I will have to rent a unit.
There are LOT for rent and this is why I can't understand some of them not being deposited. :shrug:
