Many timeshare owners want to get out of their timeshares because they are bored with their units and want to experience a new spot for their vacation. Thus, some owners avail of timeshare exchange programs and opt to become a member of Resort Condominiums international (RCI) or Interval International (II) which are vacation exchange networks, and this enables them to swap their timeshares in any part of the world.
However, many timeshare owners are frustrated with exchanging their timeshare with RCI or Interval International. There are speculations that if you don’t own a timeshare with one of the big companies like Disney, Hyatt, Hilton, Westin, Marriott or Diamond, then, you can’t get good exchanges.
RCI and II are said to hold out the best timeshare exchange inventory to give to the owners in these high end properties. Also, if the owners in the high end properties don’t use or exchange their weeks, they rent them out. So, nothing good ever gets to the rest of us.
On the other hand, what many timeshare owners don’t realize that the success in exchanging a timeshare is determined by the actions they have power over as well as the built in exchange power of where and when they own. Two people owning the exact same thing in the same resort can experience completely different results when exchanging in either RCI or Interval International.
A timeshare exchange through RCI or II can be a great way to experience a new variety of vacation and to travel as well. Today, there are many owners who try to get rid of their timeshares and one of the reasons is the lack of variety that they just go to the same location of their timeshares for certain period of the year. Some of these owners even hire a timeshare transfer company such as the Transfer Smart just to get rid of such property. To optimize your timeshare exchange through RCI or II, you must understand some things like the points mentioned above.
