Timeshare Rental guide

The main benefit to renting out your timeshare is the ability to offset some or all the annual costs of timeshare ownership! If you have never tried to rent, or didnt even know you could rent out your unused timeshare, this guide is for you!

How much can I rent my timeshare for?

After you have gathered as much evidence as you can on what similar weeks at your resort rent for, consider that you likely don't have the same advertising clout that the resort and some other listings do. If you choose to use any or many of the sources you have searched to advertise your week, you should be able to get as much rent as anyone else on that site. But if you really want to rent it, price it below what others are asking and significantly below what your resort asks for similar rentals.

A good starting point to gauge rental prices on is the annual maintenance fee cost for the week! Unfortunately, there is rarely a direct correlation between such fees and the fair rental value of your week. If you really want to rent it, offer it at a price that will get it rented and simply use your annual maintenance fee as a baseline for comparison!

Where should you List your Timeshare Rental?
