Making the most of your Trading Power
To get the best possible Exchange Holiday, you need to make the most of your deposited Week by maximising its Deposit Trading Power (see related topic below).
Of course the trading power of your deposit might not exactly match that of the Exchange Holiday that you want to take, so here’s what happens when there’s a difference.
What if my desired Exchange Holiday requires less Trading Power than my Deposit?
If the Trading Power of the Exchange Holiday you want is less than the value of the week(s) you have deposited, you will receive a Deposit Credit* that can be used (or combined) towards a future Exchange Holiday. When doing this, the End Date date of your Deposit Credit will be the same as the End Date date of the original Deposit.
What if my desired Exchange Holiday requires more trading power than my Deposit?
As long as you have a Deposit Credit, or multiple Deposits available, you may, for a fee, combine them into a new Combined Deposit* that will increase the Trading Power value of your ‘new’ Deposit.
Exchange protection protects the value of your exchange holiday, so if you need to cancel your exchange holiday for any reason you will be refunded the Trading Power you used to make the booking.
To purchase exchange protection, you can only do this at the same time as making your Exchange booking. See 'How to add exchange protection' for more information.
