What We Suggest

The real question isn't price. The real question is: why are you renting your week? What is your motivation? Trying to cover maintains fee? Hopefully no one has told you your timeshare is an investment and you can rent your weeks for a profit.

Individual owner comparables for timeshare rentals are not readily available on a national basis, however, I can share the following results of over 3,000 rentals worldwide I am personally aware of.

Timeshare rental prices range from $300 to $3,000 depending on the resort, location, amenities, unit size, season, and date. The following matrix provides a general average relationship for rentals:
                High      Mid      Low              
3 Bedrooms      1500     1300     1000        
2 Bedrooms      1300     1000      700    
1 Bedroom       1100      800      500         
0 Bedrooms       900      600      300

Matrix notes:

  • 1. Add $ for Five Star, Gold Crown and rated resorts
  • 2. Add $ for more than 3 bedrooms
  • 3. Add $ for additional bathrooms above bedroom count
  • 4. Add $ for special locations or views
  • 5. Add $ for special resorts
  • 6. Add $ for holiday weeks
  • 7. Subtract $ for last minute rentals
Viccie Mac's Rental Formula:

General guidelines for pricing is to: double your maintenance fee and take half the rack rate for hotels in the area. These two figures averaged will become your target rental rate. However, supply and demand determine true marketability. Developer, management company, and exchange company promotions within the resort or same geographical location will also influence the ultimate rental price. Above all stay flexible in the price and allow your rental agent to negotiate the best price for your timeshare week. Flexible pricing and negotiation are the key elements in successful rentals.

FINAL NOTE: BE SURE YOU ARE LISTED WITH A COMPANY THAT CAN NEGOTIATE YOUR TRANSACTION. THE 3 STEPS TO INCREASE RENTAL SUCCESS ARE:

1. GOOD RESERVATION DATE
2. LIST EARLY
3. FLEXIBLE PRICE
