If you own timeshare, you probably already know about the wonderful opportunities afforded to owners by timeshare exchange companies. You already know that as a member, you can enjoy ultimate flexibility in your vacation planning. And you already know that you can vacation any time of the year, in a different resort whenever you choose, in thousands of exciting vacation destinations around the globe. What you might not know is which timeshare exchange company to choose.
Whether you deal with RCI or II, you can be assured that your vacation destination will meet high standards for safety, luxuriousness, and loads of amenities. Just be aware that while the exchange process is generally quite similar, you will encounter slight variations depending on which company you choose.
Tips for Successful Exchanges:
- Be flexible Timeshare travel is flexible, so follow suit! Include several different resorts and travel dates (if possible) - this way you're likely to expedite the exchange and get what you want.
- Think Ahead Most timeshare exchange companies offer benefits for depositing early. And the sooner you deposit, the pickier you can be about your exchange as you'll have more time and more vacation properties to consider.
- Remember the "Like for Like" Policy Exchanging means trading for holiday time at a unit and resort that have comparable amenities to your own. If you own a one bedroom timeshare, don't expect to exchange for a two-bedroom lockout without paying additional fees.
- Do Your Research Before becoming a member of any timeshare exchange company, be sure to research the exchange policies of your home resort as well as the company you intend to join.
