Interval International Complaint - Interval international and the string-along game
We feel the need to warn others of the unscrupulous exchange practices ot II. We have been members of II for 10+ years and Have 2 Marriott weeks, plus one other banked for exchange.
I wanted a tropical vacay this Winter, so payed an extra $139.00 (over the $180.00 yearly dues) in July to have a "pending exchange" request. All I have received are annoying evening phone calls from interval staff trying to solicit 3 years of advanced interval dues a year before they are due. No offer of an exchange and I have requested 20+ locales over 5 wks. I have attempted to exchange about 10 times over 10 years and only found marginal sucess 3 times. Usually offered shabby facilities off-season or forced into accepting a "Getaway" vacation for $500.00-$1,500.00 per week when down to the wire. Buyer beware!
