Timeshares have become the most flexible form of vacationing through the use of a timeshare exchange company like Interval International.  Timeshare owners are not limited to only vacationing at their “home resort” but can explore the world with II by trading their Interval weeks into any one of their affiliate resorts worldwide. 

Interval International has affiliations with a number of name brand timeshares such as Marriott timeshares.  They are also affiliated with Westin timeshares.  In addition, II also has an affiliation with Hyatt timeshares.  With the addition of Four Seasons timeshares, you can easily see there are a variety of name brand timeshares available for members of II.

Although affiliated properties are not owned or managed by Interval International, they all must meet Interval’s criteria for quality, thus assuring members of the consistent high quality of each resort property.

Following you will find helpful information and explanations on many of the aspects of Interval International membership and how it can work for you:

A special note:  It is important to remember that if you are planning on depositing your week for exchange, you will want to maximize your exchange (trading power) with II by reserving a high demand week at your home resort.  Your chances of getting an exchange are greatly improved when you deposit a high demand week from your home resort. 

Interval is the only exchange company that offers two methods of exchange – Deposit First and Request First. 

Regular exchange requests, whether using the Deposit First or Request First method, must be received by II at least 60 days in advance of the commencement date of the earliest week requested.

II’s exchange program is determined by a like-to-like principle and is based on a number of factors, including demand for the destination you are depositing, the number of similar deposits received, the quality of the resort, and the size and season of your deposit.

While all exchanges are made based on trading power, it requires higher trading power to exchange to high demand areas like Hawaii that have a limited supply or during highly demanded weeks of the year, e.g., Christmas Week, 4th of July, New Year’s Eve, etc.  Just another reminder to reserve a high demand week at your home resort in order to maximize your exchange!

Deposit First Exchange

With the Deposit First method, Interval members deposit their week before placing an exchange request.

Deposit First generally provides a travel window of up to three years, which gives Interval the most time to find a suitable match.  Once a deposit is made, the deposited week(s) may not be withdrawn.

Owners of floating time must first contact their home resort to secure a specific unit and time period at their home resort, or to otherwise verify their eligibility to exchange prior to making a deposit.

Deposits must be received by II at least 60 days, but no more than 12 months, before the commencement date of the deposited week.

Upon receipt of a deposit, II will assign a deposit number, which must be utilized when placing an exchange request.

The exchange request may be placed at the same time that the deposit is made or at any time after receipt of the deposit number, but no later than 24 months after the commencement date of the deposited week.

To submit a valid exchange request, a minimum of three different resorts and one time period, three different time periods and one resort, or two resorts and two time periods must be requested. Members may be confirmed into any resort or time period requested.

Members have the option to Request First and have the security of retaining their week until a comparable match is confirmed.

Request First Exchange Method

With the Request First exchange method, Members who exchange with II based on weeks do not give up the right to occupy their home resort accommodations until an exchange has been confirmed.

Exchange requests using the Request First method may be placed up to 12 months prior to the commencement date of the week(s) being relinquished for exchange.

The requested travel dates must be prior to or the same as the dates of the week(s) being relinquished.

Accommodation Certificate (AC):

As an incentive to owners of high demand weeks to deposit them with II, members receive a “bonus” in the form of an Accommodation Certificate (AC), which can then be exchanged for a week through II.

The exchange choices are somewhat limited and members generally don’t receive prime season weeks when using the “AC”.

The advantage of this system is that members can use their deposited week to exchange for another week as they usually do.  Then, using the “AC” exchange they received by depositing the high demand week they own, the member actually receives two weeks of vacation.

There is no guarantee that the member will receive an “AC” every year they deposit their high demand week, as the demand for that week may change.

Make note of II’s policy that members will not get an “AC” if they use the request-first method for requesting an exchange under which you hold onto your week until you get an exchange that is acceptable to you.

Although using request-first doesn’t affect the trading power, it does disqualify members from getting an “AC”.

Our suggestion would be for members to find a unit online that they would like to exchange into first.

Then deposit their week and request an exchange.

Make sure you deposit first and then exchange and II will give you the “AC” – but only if you do it in that order!

Club Interval Gold Points Program:

Club Interval Gold is a point’s based exchange system for owners of fixed or float week timeshare ownership which allows members to convert from weeks to points.

Participation in Club Interval Gold allows members to deposit their fixed time and/or floating time home resort unit weeks with II in exchange for Club Interval Points.

The number of Club Interval Points that will be allotted to a Club Interval Gold Member based on their  deposit of a unit week and election to convert it to Club Interval Points is determined based on the Club Interval Weekly Points Values chart, which is established by II, at its sole discretion and  published on II’s website, IntervalWorld.com.

It includes all the benefits of II’s Basic and Interval Gold levels.  The first year fee is paid by the Developer or HOA for Interval Gold level.

Members have a choice annually to keep their week or convert to points.  The points system increases flexibility but requires the “Deposit First” exchange.

Members can combine points from multiple weeks and/or years.

Points are assigned by unit size, sleeping capacity, award level and the travel demand index (TDI).  Check the website to see the TDI of the week you will be depositing.

Members who exchange with II based on points do not give up the right to their points until an exchange has been confirmed. Upon confirmation, however, all rights to the use of the home resort accommodations or points are immediately assigned to II.
