    What's your thoughts on Worldmark? I am looking into Wyndham to supplement HGVC because I am on the East Coast. I hear Wyndham is not doing good things to Worldmark....

    I love my Worldmark, but I have very specific uses for it (like I do for each of my other timeshares). It's a fantastic trading property in both RCI and II, and the property locations are very diverse, with some that I can't access with any of the other systems. Because you can rent credits from others easily, I use Worldmark for family reunions as well, because I can get a bunch of rooms using rented credits.

    I don't love Wyndham, and their ever increasing fees. I just paid $100 for a housekeeping fee for a spacebank deposit into II -- it's crazy. But Worldmark gives me a great option to my other timeshares. Because it's probably only a C+/B- in quality (as compared to B+/A- for HGVC) I don't stay there routinely. But it's a great complement to the others.

    Best,

    Greg

    We love Worldmark. It's where we have most of our weeks (actually points) and it was the first timeshare we bought. Worldmark's system has locations you won't find in any other system such as West Yellowstone, Santa Fe, and Estes Park. It's also a great trader. We are in agreement with Greg and aren't big fans of Wyndham in fact, we think the worst thing that happened to Worldmark was when Wyndham purchased the developer/manager (Trendwest). But even with all the changes it's still the most flexible system out there. But we are biased, we are westerns at heart. Before we left on our one year full time trip international trip in September we spent most of our vacation time split between the west and Hawaii. In fact the the reason we purchased HGVC, Marriott, and Starwood, was to exchange into Hawaii.

    Didn't worldmark limit the number of points you could rent per year?

    Yes, only 2X your annual ownership but that hasn’t really been a problem yet.

    Best,

    So far, so good. I have a lot of points to use, but I've booked 3 nights in NY via RCI and 3 nights via the Club. Looking to book the Big Island for 2019.
