Default Availablity: Interval International

Why is the Exchange availability so low this year?
I've made a search between 1st of August and 31st of December 2010 and the result was only 5.

Default Re: Availablity: Interval International

that's a good question ralf. i know i have several friends looking at that time and they can't find anything for exchange. i think II and RCI hold the rooms for rental because they make money that way. RCI already is in the middle of a lawsuit for that reason and i suppose II has learned a lesson or two from them.

I'm sorry, I didn't mean Exchange, but I ment Getaways.
Getaways is the same as what you called rentals?

Thank you.

Ralf, My wife and I have belonged to Interval for about 15 years. We own 3 lock-off twin-unit weeks at WPN which equates to 6 weeks. Since 2003 we have been traveling to Aruba and staying at LaCabana and have never had trouble getting in during the end of the "high" season. I will admit that it has gotten close (within 2 mo. of travel). Our homebase still issues "extra week" certificate for getaways. We have NEVER been able to use one of them - anywhere. We believe that Getaway Week Certificates are usable only by people who just want to getaway and don't care where they go at a moments notice. If you put a request in for 3 different resorts in Aruba I would be surprised if one doesn't come up. Best of luck!
