If, like me you have a second (holiday) home, then try http://www.exchangeholidayhomes.com . They only have holiday homes and there’s no charge to join. You get credits if you give up a week and you can use them against any place you want to go if that member agrees to the date you want. They do charge a small exchange fee when you find your own holiday and they helped me find my holiday without charging any more for the service.

Is the name of the exchange compant "UK resort exchange" or have you inadvertantly left out the name of the company. Have you considered Dial an Exchange as an exchnage company. Their website is daelive.com

I hadn't heard of them until this topic appeared and I've owned timeshare in the UK for nearly 25 years. They state that they have been in business for 20 years - they have kept a pretty low profile over that time!

Certain aspects of their website do concern me. They claim to guarantee a UK exchange in return for a UK deposit, but there is nothing to qualify that statement. They also state that availability will vary which is obviously true.

The reality is, as with any exchange organisation, that they cannot guarantee availability of a week where you want it, when you want it. They also require that you deposit your week before being able to request a week - same as the RCI model. I much prefer to be able to search before depositing. I've successfully used Dial an Exchange to exchange 3 UK weeks in the past 3 years and find them to be extremely helpful.
