This latest “option” joins cruise, golf, and spa vacations already enjoyed by members.
“The exchange benefit is a key component of Interval membership and a driver of member satisfaction. With the addition of tour exchange, members have even more flexibility in choosing how they want to vacation,” said Sharon Freed, Interval’s senior vice president of consumer marketing. “Tour vacations are increasingly popular since many of the details are handled by experienced operators. It’s a big world and we encourage members to explore it.”
In addition to quality accommodations, these unique vacations may include an escorted or independent-type tour, knowledgeable guide, transportation, attractions and/or sightseeing activities.
