So, you’re considering selling your Hilton timeshare? This is a complete beginner’s guide to selling your timeshare. First things first: call your developer. Then, read on for our other best tips for selling you Hilton timeshare.
Sell Hilton Timeshare
Hilton Grand Vacations Club, also known as HGVC, is a worldwide timeshare brand. With over 1,000 resorts in more than 100 countries, this brand is a popular one among vacation owners. Many of their resorts are regarded as family-friendly and luxurious. Located near gorgeous sandy beaches and central to major cities, HGVC offers bragworthy destinations.
From renting to gifting to selling, there is an option for every Hilton owner. The main reason many owners sell their timeshare interest is that they don’t use it anymore. We want to recommend some options if you’re feeling that way, too.
Vacation Exchange for HGVC Owners
The first option we recommend is using an exchange network to trade your time at your home resort for vacations at another. HGVC is affiliated with RCI (formerly Resort Condominiums International). Undoubtedly, RCI has a plethora of resorts available for visiting in their network. Give them a call to see if you are eligible for membership with your timeshare. Even if you’re feeling bored with your interest, you still have options. Additionally, call HGVC and ask about their internal exchange programs. You may be able to exchange your time for other resorts in the brand.

Some owners who love their timeshare still don’t use it every year. If this is you, perhaps consider renting out your timeshare. At Timeshares Only, we help owners get their timeshare in front of rentals via our online marketplace. By renting your timeshare, you can use the rental money to cover your maintenance fees for the year. This is a perfect option if you won’t be using your timeshare this year, but still want to own it for the future.
Gift Your HGVC Timeshare
Before selling your timeshare, you may want to ask friends or family if they are interested in borrowing it for a year. All you have to do is give your resort a call and ask about their guest policies. Then, you can let someone stay on your behalf. Additionally, it may be worth asking your family members or social circles if they’ve considered owning a timeshare. You may find that they are interested and willing to buy yours.
Can I Sell My Timeshare Back to The Resort?
Generally, resorts do not buy timeshares back. However, if you’re curious about this, call Hilton. They will be able to give you a direct answer, as well as recommend other avenues you can take to sell Hilton.
Often times, timeshare developers will refer their owners to recommended resellers that can assist owners in an honest and effective way. Before looking into third-party sellers on your own, be sure to do your research! If a company is accredited by the BBB and the American Resort Development Association, you can sense that they are a trusted ally.
Avoid Timeshare Cancellation Scams
Unfortunately, there are companies that prey on owners looking to exit their timeshares. We have a running list of timeshare wins against exit companies for your reference. Many times “exit teams” will ask for a lot of money upfront, promise to “cancel your timeshare” and then cease to contact you. When looking for a good resale company to work with, trust your gut. And, don’t forget to check that they are ARDA accredited. Additionally, you may want to check out ResponsibleExit.com or Timeshare.com for the information on the timeshare industry.
Steps to Sell Hilton With Timeshares Only
If after reading through our recommendations you’re still ready to sell Hilton, we can help. Our online marketplace is designed with timeshare buyers, renters, and sellers in mind. If you decide to post with us, one of our professionals will create an ad that encompasses all the accommodations and amenities your timeshare has to offer. You’ll decide on a competitive price. Then, we work to get your posting in front of the right people to help you sell it.
When someone places an offer on your timeshare, we’ll let you know. Additionally, with your permission, our friends at Fidelity Real Estate will reach out to you to discuss negotiations and the closing process.
