Looking for some flexibility and greater options with where and when you want to vacation each year? Becoming an Interval International member is an excellent way to get on the path to the perfect vacation. In addition to basic Interval membership fees and upgrade fees, there are some fees which may be associated with the cost of your membership. We’ve put together a list of fees which you may encounter, so you won’t be surprised by any unexpected costs for 2015.
We’ve also done the research for you on the updated 2016 Interval International membership fees.
To become a member of Interval International’s exchange program, you must pay a basic membership fee of $89. This fee will cover you for one full year of membership beginning on the date of your purchase. If you wish to increase the number of discounts and benefits you receive through your II membership, there are two additional levels of II membership available, for which you must pay an upgrade fee in addition to the basic membership fee.
The annual upgrade fee for an Interval Gold status membership is $59. Therefore your total Interval Gold membership cost will be $148 per year. However, if you choose to purchase a multi-year membership, you can save yourself money.
The annual upgrade fee for an Interval Platinum status membership is $129. Your total Interval Platinum membership cost will therefore be $218. Just as with the Interval Gold membership upgrade fees, you can save some money by purchasing a multi-year Platinum membership.
The following charts illustrate the costs associated with each type of Interval International membership:

Participation in the II exchange program is always voluntary, and renewing your II membership each year is as easy as continuing to pay your regular membership fees and/or upgrade fees upon expiration each year. You may choose to enroll in the Automatic Renewal Option, where your renewal dues will be charged automatically each year, unless you cancel your membership in writing prior to your renewal date. If you fail to renew your membership within 120 days after the expiration date of your most recent membership, you may be required to pay a $200 Re-admission Fee in order to reinstate your membership.
If you wish to extend your membership on a week-to-week basis, you must pay a fee of $39 for each week you add to your existing membership. In this case, the expiration date of your current membership does not change. If you pay an additional year’s dues ($89) on your existing membership, the $39 processing fee will be waived and the additional week will be added to your account, along with another year of membership.
The Interval membership fees listed above apply to those residing in the U.S., Canada, and the Caribbean only. Different membership and exchange fees may apply to those who reside elsewhere, as they are determined separately by local Interval International offices. Taxes may apply to any of the member fees listed above and are due at the time of purchase.
In addition to your basic membership fee and an upgrade fee for Interval Gold or Platinum level membership, you will also be required to pay an Exchange Fee for every week exchanged. The domestic processing fee is $169 per week exchanged, which applies only to travel within your country of residence. The international processing fee is $179 per week exchanged, and applies to travel outside of your country of residence.
If you have opted to use the Deposit First exchange method and want to extend your Redemption Window, you will be required to pay a deposit extension fee of $99 for a 6-month extension, and $189 for a 12-month extension.
With Interval’s convenient E-Plus program you may re-trade your vacation interest(s) up to 3 times and up to 24 hours prior to the check-in date of your requested exchange dates. This option is perfect for making last minute changes to your vacation destination, your specific resort, or even your travel dates, without having to worry about paying additional exchange fees.
The cost of Guest Certificates is waived for Interval Platinum members. For basic II members and Interval Gold members, there is a $49 fee per Guest Certificate, which is due at the time it is requested. If the Guest Certificate is not issued, the fee will be refunded.
