How to Exchange

Whether you’re new to timeshare exchange, or a seasoned exchanger but new to Trading Places, depositing and exchanging can be confusing…especially when each exchange company has different rules and processes. Select from the steps below for more details on how to deposit, exchange and more with Trading Places International. Exchanging with TPI is as easy as 1, 2, 3!

Depositing (banking) your week means giving up your time now (putting it into the "bank") and receiving credit to use for a future exchange. You do not need to know which resort you want to exchange into before depositing, and depositing early is always recommended.

  • Maintenance fees of the week you want to deposit must be paid prior to depositing.
  • There is no mandatory membership fee required to deposit your week with Trading Places International.
  • Your week must be deposited and verified before it can be exchanged. Note: Deposits are guaranteed if requests are submitted 60 days or more prior to arrival, subject to verification.
  • If you are thinking of taking advantage of our Resorts to Ports program and would like to exchange your week toward a cruise or vacation package, your week must be deposited specifically with Resorts to Ports. Your week cannot already be deposited with TPI exchange or another exchange company. Please call 800-365-8644 for more information or to deposit with Resorts to Ports.

Call your resort's reservations department and state that you would like to reserve a week and deposit with Trading Places. Then call us at 800-365-7617 and deposit your week.

Exchanging (trading) is the use of a unit/week, other than the unit/week which you own or have reserved, at your own Resort (internal exchange) or another Resort (external exchange).

  • Now that you have credit for a week in the TPI “bank” you have two years to use that credit towards an exchange.
  • Upgrades – Trading Places allows exchangers to upgrade into a larger unit or higher season than the week deposited, for a nominal upgrade fee.
  • Exchange Directory – Need ideas for your exchange? Research destinations, resorts, photos, amenities and more by reviewing our exchange directory.
