Let’s start with the facts; your timeshare will most likely not cover 100% of your future travel. What are your options if you own Marriott, Hilton, and Wyndham as an example and would like to travel to Rome for a large family trip?
If you are a member of RCI, there is a resort 20 km from Rome on a golf course, but that is not downtown Rome. Interval has three properties in Rome. This would be your best shot to book Rome, provided you have enough points or weeks to trade, and you can get the trade. If you own over 7,000 points with Marriott or higher, you can use Villas of Distinction to book a beautiful apartment, villa, or home only issue is there is nothing in Rome.
What if you are a Wyndham owner and have The Registry Collection? Unfortunately, it’s the same answer nothing in Rome.
This leaves three options:
1. Don’t go to Rome
2. Switch your ownership points to hotel reward points (one of the worst things you can do with your ownership for value)
3. Go to Expedia or booking.com and pay cash.
