    It is never too early to start thinking aboutyour dream vacation or even a getaway for justthe two of you!

    The Travel Demand Index (T.D.I.) is a valuableand easy-to-use tool when you start the planningprocess. As you flip through the IntervalInternational, Inc. Resort Directory, you willnotice that every geographic location has a T.D.I. chart that is specific for that region. Learning howto utilize the T.D.I. chart will enhance your exchange opportunities as you travel the globe!

    The T.D.I. (pictured below) has been modified specifically for the ColonialCrossings reservation system. In Williamsburg, for example, the T.D.I.suggests that week intervals furthest to the right are of greater demand.For example, week #25 carries a T.D.I. value of approximately 125. However,

    week #9 has a T.D.I. value of approximately 75. When requesting a week forthe purposes of exchanging, reserving weeks with values of greater demandwill maximize the probability of a successful exchange. Consult the IntervalResort Directory for more details.

    Interval International recently reported to us that 79.9% of ColonialCrossings owners receive an instant confirmation, or within 48-hoursof making a request. Dont forget that you can always deposityour home resort week up to one (1) year in advance!
