RCI vs. Internal International - Exchange Trading Power

As I have discussed before, I have predominately used Interval International for my exchanges.  The two Hyatt weeks which I own have very favorable exchange rates with Interval International which allows me to get almost 5 weeks of travel for my one week (albeit in a studio).  As I previously discussed, I now have control over another timeshare week that I own that trades through RCI.  I have been reviewing and spending more time on RCI to determine how I can maximize the RCI week that I own.   The first impression is that it is significantly harder to maximize timeshare ..read more

If you have been a reader of TTG, you will notice that I have heavily posted strategies and deals predominantly concerning Interval International.  As I have explained before, I own two Hyatt timeshare weeks and my grandfather had given me a week at Arroyo Roble which is a timeshare located in Sedona Arizona. The two Hyatt weeks are affiliated with Interval International and the Arroyo Roble timeshare is affiliated with RCI.  My grandfather gave me his timeshare with the understanding that he would use it while he could and upon his passing, I would be able to use it.  He wan ..read more

Incredible Timeshare Opportunities

With the world shut down, airlines ceasing services and hotels shutting down, travel plans have simply stopped.  While I normally have dozens of trips planned, I have been cancelling our trips one after the other as the airlines change schedules and the news continues to get worse.   I have no desire on being on a plane at the moment.  The close quarters with a bunch of strangers who are potentially carrying this virus is stressful. However, while the world is fearful at the moment, the reality is that this will not last forever.  While there have been many talks about f ..read more

COVID-19 - The Enemy of the Travel Industry

These past few weeks have been incredible.  Who would have ever guessed that a virus would literally shut down the entire world.  While I had personally thought that a recession was on the horizon, I don't think that anyone could have guessed that the entire world would shut down with life coming to a standstill at a moments notice.  While I am sure that you are tired of hearing about COVID-19 (I sure am), the fact is that it is here and do not see it radically disappearing in the near future.  This obviously has and will have tremendous effects on everyone's daily life b ..read more

First, I want to apologize to my readers for the long delay in posting new content.  The past year has been full of various distractions which has caused me to have to focus on other things.  Over time, I'll give you some additional details on what has transpired on my personal front but they have all been positive developments.  The downside was that other aspects of my life required my full attention to the detriment of TTG.  For better of worse, the COVID-19 pandemic has given me some more time to spend with my family, catch up on things that I have wanted to do and no ..read more

Timeshare Strategy:  Interval Getaways and Interval Exchanges - a pricing discrepancy to be aware of.
The Timeshare Guru Blog
by
3y ago
For those of you who are new to the site or to timeshares in general, Interval International has two options to reserve timeshare weeks.  Interval Getaways are weeks which you rent for cash and Interval Exchanges are those weeks where you trade your week or points in exchange for the week.   Interval Exchanges have exchange fees on top of whatever week or points that you use and currently run $209 per week.  E-Plus (the ability to retrade your exchange for 3 times for no additional fee) is in addition to that fee for $59 but as discussed many times before, I highly recommend ..read more

Spring Break 2019: A Timeshare Fail, A Timeshare Strategy Success and An Unbelievable Windfall
The Timeshare Guru Blog

Timeshare Fail Last week was spring break for many schools around the nation.  It is a very hectic time to travel.  Unfortunately, when you have children in school, if you want to travel, you are forced to travel on their schedule.   We usually take a ski trip during spring break and this year was no exception.  As you may know, we are very fond of Park City. The issue with this year was that our school district changed the standard week of spring break.  Instead of it occurring during the 2nd week of March, they changed it to the 3rd week of March. As an avid pla ..read more

Timeshare Deal:  Week in a 1 bedroom unit in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico at the Grand Solmar for $289 - June 2019

I have talked about Accommodations Certificates before and while the choices can have a lot to be desired, there have been some significant "diamonds in the rough".  I was recently targeted again for 2 additional Accommodations Certificates from Interval International which allow you to receive up to a 3 bedroom unit for $289 exchange fee for an entire week.   The destinations or available timeshares for these weeks are generally not prime weeks or prime resorts but if you are diligent, there can be some amazing deals.  I was searching for some opportunities using my c ..read more

Top Timeshare Locations In Europe Given that the continent attracts a steady stream of visitors from all over the globe, it’s no surprise that Europe is home to some incredibly desirable timeshares. In virtually every country and every major city across the country, there are places that people invest in as homes away from home, giving them the chance to spend regular time at a desired destination, and possibly even use said destination as a base from which to wander around Europe.  To narrow down all of the potential options is quite a task, and naturally there are dozens of excellent ..read more
