    Just joined II with Worldmark. Is it a good trader?

    Can't seem to see much and am not sure what I'm missing.
    It has it as my Worldmark ownership as a float week - week 54 with a check in date in Nov. (??)
    When I go to search for an exchange, do I just select the largest size unit to exchange with, to see what's out there?

    I usually look for something in the 60 day window using a WM 1 bed unit. I know I exchanged by request before with II using WM, but I can't remember where I went.

    Thanks for your reply. II doesn't seem to have much in my neck of the woods. Will keep playing around with it.

    After I saw your post I checked what was available in the 60 day window at II. I found some really nice resorts available for 4500 points + exchange fee. I actually thought about heading to the Marriott in Bangkok. There was a two bed unit available. The 28 hour flight kind of turned me off. I think it would be way closer for you.

    Actually they have lots of stuff in Australia New Zealand. We are looking to go in April May 2018 so it is a bit early fit our dates but I frequently look and see availability.

    Look at the directory to get an idea.

    Just did a search from April 2016 to April 2017. And this is what I see

    Australia & New Zealand

    Australia, New South Wales, Central
    Australia, New South Wales, North Coast
    Australia, Queensland, Cairns
    Australia, Queensland, Gold Coast
    Australia, South Australia
    Australia, Victoria
    Australia, Western Australia
    New Zealand, Paihia
    New Zealand, Queenstown
    New Zealand, Turangi

    Just from scanning, I believe you search with a three bedroom but ultimately the number of points taken depends on the u it size and season you get.

    That is correct. Search with the full 3bd and the credits will be applied based on what you booked. You can also do request first and the credits redeemed with be based on what you match. You can also ask WM to deposit a white/blue/red week based on credits but they choose the resort and the season (at least in the US) but that's getting ahead of ourselves right now. You can't reserve a week in WM and deposit the exact week in II but you can with other exchange companies.

    Thanks! The Thailand Marriott looks good but I can only see a few check in dates.

    I've been searching with a 3br, thinking that will give me better trading power. Thanks!

    Very EXCITED though. Just confirmed a Tradewinds Fiji cruise through RCI with my Australian Worldmark for our wedding anniversary next April. A whole year away but we are both really looking forward to it.
    At the moment, our Worldmark SP is with RCI and our Worldmark US is with II.
