Trading DVC into Interval question


Aug 24, 2008

I have been a DVC member for years but have never deposited a DVC week into Interval International for a trade. I can book a two bedroom OKW week but want to trade specifically for Harborside Resort Atlantis (HRA), which is on the DVC/II list. Anyone have any experience/tips for getting a successful trade?

Since this is a Starwood timeshare, most weeks either are exchanged within the Starwood network or snapped up on II by Starwood owners who have first priority for them. It's a difficult exchange. If it were me I'd either:

rent my DVC week and use the funds to rent from a Harborside owner

or post on the TUG timeshare market for a direct owner exchange.

Or do a "request first" with II so you don't lose your DVC week if you can't get an exchange.
