- Why should I exchange with Trading places?
Unlike some other exchange companies, there are no mandatory membership fees to join Trading Places, and our exchange fees are lower than other major competitors.
- How do I deposit a week?
First, you will need to schedule your use week at your home resort. Once you have your use week confirmed, you may deposit your week online or over the phone at 800-365-7617. You will need to provide us with the resort name, arrival date of your use week, unit size, and confirmation.
- When do I need to deposit my week?
Deposits must be submitted a minimum of 60 days prior to the arrival date of your use week. If a deposit is made less than 60 days prior to arrival, your deposit credit will be dependent on another TPI member confirming the week you deposited.
- How long do I have to travel using a deposited week?
The expiration of your deposited week is 2 years from the arrival date of the week you are depositing, and it is a travel by date. Example: If you deposit a week with a beginning travel date of January 1, 2021, your deposited week of credit will expire January 1, 2023.

- The location I am interested in is unavailable, can I be added to a waitlist?
Yes! If you have an eligible deposit, you may submit a waitlist request online or by calling 800-365-7617. A waitlist request is the best way to get the exchange you want, as it assures you will be offered a match before it is made available on our website and to other members calling us. You will be contacted by email once a match is found, and all offers are made in the order received, so be sure to place your waitlist as soon as you know when and where you want to travel.
- Can I request an exchange into a larger size unit or for a higher demand season?
Yes, but remember, exchanging is based on like value. Unit upgrade fees may apply if you are exchanging into a unit that has more bedrooms and/or larger occupancy than what you have deposited. Please contact our exchange department at 800-365-7617 for fee details.
