All,

I'm down in Virginia Beach for the few days & I got talked into going to see a timeshare at the Ocean Beach Club.

I searched online for "timeshare resales" and see that you can get them at a reduced price on the resale market....but my question is:

Does anyone have any experience with the companies RCI or Interval International?

How hard is it REALLY to swap weeks and go to a different location. That was one of there big selling points.

Thank you for any feedback you can provide!

J

This is more of a question for the Travel forum. I'm going to move it there.

I used to work for RCI. It is fairly easy to swap a week - if you have a red week! Also, please know that even if you purchase a red week, it is not easy to get weeks at prime vacation locations. If you wan to go somewhere, plan and book early.

check out what the yearly maintainance cost is.

That is the " killer" with timeshares.

Check also if the entire " deal" you buy goes with a re-sale.

Many times the original buyer discovers, whn he tries to re-sell it, that special perks he has can't be transferred with the re-sale.

The biggest complaint I hear from people who bought them is that even once they are paid off, the yearly maintainance fee remains quite high and increases.

I would rate Blue/Green ahead of RCI.
