Exchanging week for Interval International

It does seem like the best weeks are not available right now for each location. What locations are decent overseas?

Haylady . . . you really need to provide more information regarding your interests. Yes, a lot of the nice international locations in Europe are a challenge to exchange into regardless of which network you're using (RCI, II or DAE). This is largely because of the limited amount of inventory available over there . . . and the high demand from a lot of American tourists trying to go during the summer (as you are).

We booked our Ireland exchange with RCI in December 2010 for April 2012 as an example. As much as I wanted a second week there to tie to this one I was unable to find anything else, in spite of a continued search for over a year now.

If you want to get to an international destination in the summer, start looking now for 2013.

Okay, so if international is out, I wouldn't mind going to the Caribbean or places in the U.S. I just need a little getaway, preferably someplace warm. This one needs to be used by December 2012 and I can go from May-September because I'm starting a new job in October and have classes until the mid-end of May.

Actually they have only units available for 2-4 people (studio). I am travelling with at least 4 and we need 2 bedrooms (or at the very least one plus a living room with a pullout)

I believe you'll be in hurricane season in Aug/Sept in the Caribbean.

Hopefully you'll be able to find something of interest for this summer.

It should be low season in Florida as well -if you avoid the Orlando area
