Smart Steps to Exchange Your Timeshare

transfer smartFor some owners, having to visit the same timeshare location every year can be boring. Some owners usually complain about the disadvantages brought about by timeshare ownership such as the increasing maintenance fees. Thus, most of them want to get out of their timeshare properties. But other owners find innovative ways to make the most of their timeshares. One of these ways is the timeshare exchange.

Here are certain steps to begin engaging in timeshare exchanges.

First step is to decide where you want to go.  With this, it is advisable to get to know your RCI and II directory rather than picking it up the day you want to request your exchange.

Next is to decide the exact dates when you want to go. Remember to plan in advance so that you will have better options.

Another one is to pay your maintenance fees at your home resort before you contact RCI or II. Neither company will allow your request until your maintenance fees are paid.

If you own a points-based or a floating week timeshare, you have an extra step before you can request your exchange. You can instruct your home resort to deposit, or bank a week, before you can place an exchange request.

And finally, call your exchange company and place your request.

The steps mentioned above will help you to have a successful timeshare exchange. We usually hear complains about timesharing and a number of owners nowadays want to get rid of their timeshare properties. Some even hire a timeshare transfer company such as the Transfer Smart just to get rid of their timeshares. Remember that a timeshare exchange is just one of the ways to get the most out of your timeshare.

I think trading your timeshare is a great idea but is also another FEE, something timeshare owners have come to hate, with that said, there is a website lunching soon that will allow owners to trade without paying a fee to companies like RCI. would love to hear some feedback from you here or at
