About WorldMark Timeshares

WorldMark by Wyndham is a brand of vacation ownership under Wyndham Destinations. Besides WorldMark, resort brands under Wyndham include Club Wyndham, Margaritaville Vacation Club, Shell Vacations Club, and more. In fact, Club Wyndham and WorldMark timeshares are some of the most well-known on the market.

The WorldMark program gives owners the advantage of using a points-based, flexible system. With this system, owners can travel to over 220 WorldMark resorts in North America, as well as highly sought-after global destinations such as Fiji, Australia, Mexico, and more. It’s clear that frequent travelers love WorldMark by Wyndham because of the satisfying work/life balance and unique vacations.

Before You Sell WorldMark Timeshare

We recommend that owners consider their options before committing to selling their WorldMark timeshare. There are so many ways to breathe new life into your vacation ownership! For example, growing weary of your home resort? Consider using your annual credit to branch out and visit different resorts within the brand portfolio. Or rather, venture out of WorldMark’s portfolio with RCI.

Vacation Exchange with RCI

One of the best ways to keep your ownership fresh is to use a vacation exchange network. Wyndham owns RCI, which is the world’s first vacation exchange network. With an RCI membership, WorldMark owners can deposit their weeks/points on RCI to trade for a vacation to a new destination! RCI’s catalog includes a variety of the top vacation club brands. They offer over 4,200 resorts in 110 different countries, so you’re bound to find somewhere you’re interested in traveling to.

Rent Out Your WorldMark Credits

Selling your WorldMark timeshare is a permanent decision. So, if you are on the fence, maybe try renting it out! If you just need a break from traveling or have another commitment, renting is a great option. Renting out your timeshare credits is also a great way to help cover the cost of maintenance fees. Timeshares Only is a great place to advertise your timeshare for rent! We’ll help you create an effective rental ad, then we’ll advertise it through social media, email, online search engines, and more.

Selling WorldMark Timeshare Safely

If you feel like you’ve gotten everything out of your WorldMark by Wyndham timeshare, then it may be time to sell your WorldMark timeshare. If this is the case, then we’re here to help you make that process easy. Here are some tips for selling your WorldMark timeshare.

Certified Exit — Backed by Wyndham

If you are thinking of selling or getting out of your WorldMark timeshare, you should start by calling your resort. Their customer service teams can guide you to safe solutions, like Wyndham Cares or Certified Exit—backed by Wyndham. These programs are put in place to guide owners away from fraudulent third parties or resale scams. After all, Wyndham Destinations has a huge reputation to manage, and their number one goal is customer satisfaction.

Wyndham and WorldMark understand that sometimes, their owners can no longer hold on to their timeshares. Not to mention, defaulting on your ownership or falling victim to timeshare scams also hurts the industry, as well as other owners. When you use Certified Exit, WorldMark works with you to explore your options. It’s even possible to complete your exit in as little as ninety days!

Avoid “Exit” or “Cancellation” Companies

We advise every owner to contact their resort developer first because of the long history of owners being scammed by “potential buyers.” WorldMark and Wyndham are American Resort Development Association members, so they follow strict ethical guidelines. If a company or firm advises you to stop paying your maintenance fees or loan, proceed cautiously. You want your credit score to stay good, so never quit paying your costs. Another red flag is if the company charges steep upfront fees or guarantees to get you out of your ownership. Timeshares are deeded properties, and just like how you can’t simply “get out” of your mortgage, there’s no guarantee you can get out of your timeshare contract.

Additionally, timeshares do not appreciate in value, so you will not be making any money on selling your timeshare, and it’s rare you’ll get back what you paid for it. Some sellers may be turned off by the idea of receiving pennies on the dollar for their ownership. However, selling your interest on the resale market or coming to a solution with WorldMark is truly the best way to get out.

    I can no longer afford to pay my quarterly maintenance fees of $185.41 for Worldmark 6000 points. I purchased this time share when it was own by Tremwest back in 2005. It is paid off but maintenance fees are to be paid every 3 months.

    I am in the same position… I purchased the time share of 6000 credits with the Worldmark by Trendwest in 2001 and paid it off. I can no longer afford to pay my quarterly maintenance fees that recently increased to $192.82 and would like to sell all my credits – currently 12000 credit available, but I am afraid I will lose 6000 credit by 05/31/2021. Please help me sell this.

  • Mark Moffitt

    So I’m considering selling. I have 15000 points. My question is, when you post your account for sale, is it based on the number of points you bought (15000) or the number of points you own at the time (ie. point balance due to use or being assigned the next year’s allotment) ? Also, what is the average selling price (percentage wise) on the dollar amount you paid per point?

    • Lauren McGee

      Hello Mark!
