Miami, Florida, August 22, 2013 – Interval International, a prominent worldwide provider of vacation services and an operating business of Interval Leisure Group (Nasdaq: IILG), announced the worldwide launch of E-Plus, an exciting new vacation exchange feature. With E-Plus, weeks or points members may change destinations, resorts, unit sizes, or travel dates as many as three times — up to 24 hours before check-in — for an additional onetime fee.
“We’re very pleased to introduce this game-changing feature to our exchange program as it offers great value and even more flexibility in the vacation planning process,” said Sharon Freed, Interval’s senior vice president of consumer marketing. “Members can book their vacations with the peace of mind that if their travel plans change — for any reason — they can ‘retrade’ without any additional fees.”
Through exchange, a proven initial timeshare purchase motivator, Interval members can trade the use of their week or points for comparable accommodations at another time and/or resort for a fee. Generally, once an exchange is confirmed, changes are subject to another charge.
“E-Plus is an attractive option for those who like to plan in advance yet like to keep options open,” Freed added. “There’s a comfort level in having a confirmation and the opportunity to continue searching online 24/7 for other accommodations or destination preferences. It definitely puts the ‘change’ in Exchange!”
E-Plus is available for purchase online through IntervalWorld.com or by calling Member-Services Centers. Fees vary by country and may not be available to all vacation owners. Other terms and conditions apply.
