Holiday Inn Club Timeshare Exit Options

You will find the internet, radio and TV flooded with companies claiming to provide you a way to get you out of your Holiday Inn Club Timeshare, you quite literally cannot throw a rock without hitting at least a half-dozen of these outfits they have become so popular. The dirty little secret is that all of these companies charge hundreds if not thousands of dollars to "help" you do something you can do yourself!

You might ask how these companies can do business like this? The answer is simple:

Owners don't find Timeshare Users Group first to get the truth!

How to Exit my Holiday Inn Club Timeshare?

Just like with any other Timeshare, all Holiday Inn Club owners have 3 options available to them:

  • Find a new owner on the resale market
  • Give the ownership back to the Holiday Inn
  • Stop paying/Default

This article will discuss all 3 of these options in broad detail, but if more personal help or questions are needed you can find them covered regularly in other Timeshare advice articles as well as the TUG Holiday Inn Club Vacations Owner Forum if you wish to look into those further!

What is Holiday Inn Club Horizons and how do I give my Timeshare back?

This official program allows existing Holiday Inn Club owners to exit their ownership and surrender it back to Holiday Inn directly!

This program can be found here Horizons homepage and includes both an online form, and direct phone number to contact Holiday Inn Club directly and begin the process of ending your ownership.

This seems too good to be true, whats the catch?

While there is no "catch", there are a few important items to note:

  • Your ownership must be paid off(no loan balance)
  • You cannot be delinquent in your maintenance fees
  • There is usually a fee paid directly to Holiday Inn to utilize this program

Thats it! no secrets, no hidden agendas! If you have a Holiday Inn Club Timeshare or points you wish to get rid of, you can simply call the number on the website above and begin the quick and easy process of giving your Timeshare back to HICV

If Horizons is so easy, why dont more owners use it?

Quite frankly, it is because Holiday Inn Club owners dont know the program exists! Admittedly Holiday Inn Club isnt going to go out of its way to promote such a program, although they do regularly advertise its existence to Holiday Inn Club owners. The fact of the matter is that Upfront Fee Timeshare Exit companies do far more to specifically target and promote their "services" to owners because that is how they make their money!

There are thousands of Holiday Inn Club Timeshare owners who feel they are stuck with their timeshare, and doing a search on google will return hundreds of results the majority of which are upfront fee Timeshare exit companies promising an easy way out!

Rest assured when you contact them, you wont be told about this program as if you knew, why would you pay them money to do something you can do yourself with a simple phone call?

Am I truly out of my Holiday Inn Club Timeshare?

Yes! Once you have completed the process of surrendering your Holiday Inn Club Ownership back, you are no longer an owner and no longer have any yearly maintenance fee obligations!

This is hard to believe, can you prove this program works?

Absolutely! Holiday Inn Club Horizons has been in existence for years and was first announced on TUG back in 2018. Since then hundreds if not thousands of Holiday Inn Club Owners have discovered this info thru TUG and successfully ended their Holiday Inn Club ownerships! You can view the full discussion thread here that is still active with owners finding it every single week! Horizons, How to give back your Holiday Inn Club timeshare.

These are the lucky ones like yourself, unfortunately the rest likely pay some random company a fortune to do something they could have done themselves!

What if I dont want to just give it back to Holiday Inn?

While the majority of Holiday Inn Club Ownerships have little to no resale value (check out our other articles for more info on this), 3 HICV resorts (South Beach, Lake Geneva, Gatlinburg) do indeed have some residual value that could be offered up on the resale market to net some money to you as an owner if you chose to sell it vs give it back to Holiday Inn Club!

If you wish to investigate this option, we would suggest starting with our How to Sell your Timeshare Guide for more details on how to sell your Timeshare yourself without paying large upfront fees and without being scammed!

Sadly most if not all other HICV ownerships have very little if any resale value but can be offered up for free on the resale market in the hopes of attracing someont to take it off your hands! TUG provides a completely free forum for this very purpose: Free Timeshare Giveaways

What if I just stop paying for my Holiday Inn Vacations Club Timeshare?

If you have exhausted all other options, all owners are able to exit an unwanted timeshare by simply defaulting on the payments. While not an appealing option at face value, every owners situation is different and you may discover that this is the "least bad" option for you.

This is such an important topic for owners, we actually created an entire youtube video to cover it! Check it out here:

The Final Word on Getting out of an unwanted Holiday Inn Club Timeshare!

It only takes a phone call to get started!
