Maybe this isn't as complicated as I'm making it, but I can't figure out how to cover timeshare points expended if a trip is cancelled. We have Shell points applied for non-Shell properties through RCI. We can get insurance for flight, etc, but is there any way to recoup the points or a dollar equivalent? How does it work if one is a 'weeks' owner instead of points?
Thanks,
Zach Kaplan

You would most likely be reimbursed for your maintenance fee. See the sticky at the top of the board for more info. about TS Travel Insurance.

Ah yes...the maintenance fees would be easy to 'quantify'. Fair enough. Will re-read the sticky and check with the insurance outfit. Thanks.
