How to Rent Your Timeshare
There are various reasons why you might consider renting your timeshare. One is perhaps you won’t need it this year, and you don’t want the reservation to go to waste.
If that’s the case, you can definitely rent your timeshare as long as your maintenance fees and loans are current on it. Additionally, you will need to confirm with your resort that you are allowed to check guests into your ownership without you being present.
Ready to learn how to rent your timeshare? Getting your timeshare out there is simple. It just takes a few easy steps:
- Confirm with your developer that you’re allowed to have guests use your timeshare
- Decide on the price and dates (if you have a fixed week timeshare, this can be simple, but if you have a points timeshare, consider renting all of your points or booking a vacation during a prime vacation time)
- Contact one of our Rental Experts–we create your ad and then start finding you a renter
Frequently Asked Questions
How Does it Work?
Once you’ve decided you want to rent your timeshare, we will create an ad that shows the price, photos, and amenities of the resort. Then, we get to work advertising your rental through social media, email, and online searches. You can provide your own resort photos for your rental, or we can provide them for you. Let us know all the details you’d like on your posting, and we’ll make it happen for you.
We target past renters and potential renters who might be interested in your posting. As soon as someone requests to rent your timeshare week or points, we let you know.
As soon as a guest reserves your timeshare, a representative will confirm all the details and handle the transaction details. Then, you’ll call your resort and let them know that someone will be checking in for your reservation. It’s that simple! It works a lot like letting a guest use your timeshare reservation. Once your timeshare is booked, you can use the proceeds to pay for annual maintenance or for anything else you want.
How Do I Set The Price?
The price of your rental is totally up to you. It all depends on what you’re willing to accept. We recommend pricing it competitively. That means doing research on similar options and pricing it to rent. If you’re having trouble, don’t worry. Of course, our rentals team can also tap into research for you to help you make the best decision. However, the end price is totally up to you! Many renters use the money they get from renting their timeshare to help cover maintenance fees, or they add it to their savings. What you do with it is your choice.
Our team will help you get paid for your rental in a secure way. Most renters receive their money after the timeshare vacation is complete.
