We have recently purchased a points timeshare in Banff. We are now hoping to take the family (6) to Cancun in Jan 2007. We have started doing the research & have 1/2 decided on the Golden Shores, AI is fairly reasonable, and the info I have read on TA says you can get a suite that sleeps up to 8, with 3 bathrooms. Is it worth using points for flights or do you just keep looking for a good deal? For the experienced timeshare users, what do you do for flights? We will be flying from Edmonton? Also some people say they book 2 yrs, in advance?!! On the RCI site it says you can only book 10 months in advance. Any and all info will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
