All exchanges are done through Interval International, you don’t have the option to participate in the Marriott Destination Club Points Program, nor do you have the right to convert into the Marriott Reward Points.
Marriott Destination Club Points owners who purchase resale or retail can use their points at their Home Resort or any other Marriott vacation club resort, or make exchanges through Interval International or convert into Marriott Reward Points for hotel stays at Marriott locations worldwide, cruises, car rentals and discounts.
