Successful Timeshare Exchange | RTX Traveler Magazine

One of our goals at RTX is to ensure that when you are ready to plan your exchange vacation, the process is as simple and smooth as possible. While our Travel Consultants do everything that they can on our end, there are a few things that our members can do to ensure that the exchange process is seamless and successful. These tips should help as you plan your next dream vacation with RTX.


Plan in advance: It’s well-known in the vacation industry that the earlier you book, the more space will be available. With RTX you can request a reservation 365 days in advance. Keep in mind that in order to complete the exchange by banking your week and confirming the reservation, the maintenance fees for the year of usage you are exchanging must be paid in full. With a reservation booked well in advance, you can relax and start thinking about all of the fun things you’ll do on vacation rather than worry about booking details as time ticks away.

Be Flexible: Since RTX does not limit itself to affiliated resorts, we may have access to inventory at a variety of resorts and destinations that might not be exactly what you originally had in mind, but may be just as good, if not better. That’s why we recommend searching for an area or region rather than a specific resort. Also, it can make a difference if we are able search for more than one option for travel dates or even check-in days, which further increases your chances of securing the exchange you desire.

Set your expectations: Want a two-bedroom villa with a hot tub and private deck facing the ocean in Myrtle Beach during July 4th week? Don’t we all! With some advance planning and flexibility, you may just be able to secure that coveted vacation scenario. However, high demand weeks in any destination can be challenging. Additionally, some destinations only have a limited number of timeshare or vacation ownership properties in their vicinity. Our Travel Consultants are will work hard to make your vacation dreams come true, and you can help by planning ahead, being flexible, and having realistic expectations.

Keep in touch: RTX keeps exchange searches active for 30 days. A Travel Consultant will contact you when we have found a reservation matching your request. Please note that we typically are able to hold reservations for 24 to 48 hours if we are unable to get in touch with you immediately. It is essential that you contact us back within this time frame to confirm the reservation once we have reached out to you. If we do not hear back from you within the  hold period, your request will be canceled.

In the case that nothing has been found to meet your search criteria, we will send you a reminder e-mail when your search is close to expiring. We understand that things can change, so we ask that you please let us know if at any point during the search period if you would like to modify or cancel your request. By letting us know when something changes on your end, you help us provide better service for you and all of our members.
