Fast Facts


  • Membership with Alderwood is free, however, to exchange you must be an active WIVC member in good standing and all maintenance fee assessments and similar charges must be paid.
  • Alderwood does not own any resorts, so the weeks they have to trade are only those that have been deposited.
  • Any time you request an exchange be flexible. Alderwood will begin an exchange search for you outside of a 45-day window to no more than 365 days from the date of submission.
  • The exchange fee for domestic and international travel is US$79 per week.
