FIXED versus FLEXI TIME
When timeshare originally began in the 1960s, owners would typically buy one or more specific week(s), in a specific apartment at a specific resort. This is known as FIXED WEEK TIMESHARE. For example, week 32 in apartment Cabana Beach in Umhlanga Rocks on the Natal North coast is a fixed, dedicated week each year on an ongoing basis. For those who purchased a Government School Holiday in a FIXED WEEK TIMESHARE resort did not prove to be too successful with the school holiday calendars changing from year to year. For example, if consumers purchased a week that was FIXED during the Easter timeshare calendar they would be most upset. For example, any week purchased in this period for the sole purpose of having a school holiday period would find that the school holidays did not coincide with the Government School holiday weeks as they move about over the Easter months of March and April. Over time consumer needs evolved and they were looking for a more flexible product.  Timeshare exchange helped a great deal to meet this aspiration but a product known as FLOATING TIME OR FLEXI TIME was also  introduced whereby a consumer purchased a week at a particular resort without being fixed to a particular apartment or the same specific week each year.  This form of timeshare purchase is quite popular for a while but is now rarely available. For example, with flex weeks, you can choose from a range of weeks within a designated pool of flexi inventory. FLEXI WEEKS fall outside of the school holiday periods. The balance of the weeks in this type of system are called PEAK weeks. You cannot own a Flexi week and expect to exchange into a Peak week period. There are 13 Peak weeks in the calendar and 39 weeks in the Flexi period. Many of the Flexi weeks fall into the Private School holiday calendars. An example of a FLEXI resort is Magaliespark.
