Last month we placed the spotlight on RCI, so it is only fair to give the fabulous Interval International their chance in the sun! As timeshare exchange is such a wonderful benefit to timeshare ownership, it is important you know your options. Find vacation ownership resorts that are affiliated with RCI, Interval International, or both! An affiliation with one of these external exchange companies ensures the resort is high-quality and that you have thousands of top-rated resorts available to vacation at.
Interval International (II) is an international timeshare exchange company that has been offering high-end, flexible exchange options for owners for more than 25 years. Any resort that is fortunate enough to be affiliated with Interval International has to meet their superior quality standards set by their rating system. Vacationing at an II resort property ensures you are staying with the best of the best.
There are over 3,000 resorts currently affiliated with II. These resorts reside in more than 80 countries, making an Interval International membership quite like a passport to travel the world. The current 2 million members can attest to II’s exchange services, member benefits, and customer service.
Being an Interval International member gives you a range of membership benefits that reach beyond timeshare exchange. For starters, II has two main memberships—individual and corporate. Individual is purchased voluntarily by the owner, and corporate is automatically included with the purchase of a timeshare.
Various membership benefits include travel agency services, the ability to purchase Guest Certificates for your family, member coupons for travel and leisure, and II Getaways (access for additional travel opportunities without using your vacation time). These are just the basic benefits offers, members can also upgrades to Gold or Platinum levels of membership for an extra fee.
II also offers a points-based memebership, known as Club Interval Gold. This allows owners who have fixed or floating weeks to exchange for Club Interval Points. They can be used towards timeshare accommodations, or the Interval Options program that offers cruises, golf vacations, and spa retreats.
While you can’t “buy” an actual Interval International timeshare, you can buy an II affiliated timeshare for thousands of dollars off the retail price when you shop the secondary market. While Interval International doesn’t actually own any resorts, they only affiliate themselves with the best of the best. Own at a quality resort for a fraction of the price, and then purchase an affordable II membership to give you all the benefits and exchange options you could ever desire!
While many resorts have resale restrictions for internal exchange when you buy on the resale market, Interval International exchange offers the perfect solution for you to get the most out of your ownership. Memberships are affordable and allow you to travel freely and flexibly in a way that fits your budget and lifestyle.
