Timeshare Trade-In

The process of trading in your timeshare is comparable to trading up your used car for a new one. This is a viable option for those who are still looking to vacation, but have determined their current timeshare is no longer meeting their vacation needs.


 

There are Two Options Available for Trading-in Your Timeshare

1) Trade-in to a Travel Clubfamily vacation photos

What is a Travel Club?
A travel club is an association of individual business owners and corporations typically in the travel industry that join together to form an affiliation of wholesale travel packages for members.

How do I Trade-in?

  • You trade 100% of the rights, responsibilities and privileges of your current timeshare (including maintenance fees and special assessments)
  • Purchase a new vacation program with a travel club
  • Sign a transfer agreement at the point-of-sale with the travel club
  • You will still have to be involved in the transfer process (this normally includes paying a nominal transfer fee and signing/notarizing various resort transfer forms and new deeds if required)
  • You will remain responsible for the old timeshare until the final transfer takes place, but the transfer agreement signed at point-of-sale acts to guarantee that the transfer will happen

Why Travel Club?

  • You alone determine if the compensation offered for the timeshare is fair
  • Many travel clubs have programs that allow you to pay as you travel, meaning there are very modest to no annual fees attached to memberships
  • Travel clubs often allow you access to timeshare units and resorts located throughout the world, without the responsibility of owning one
  • Typically less expensive buy-in prices than mainstream vacation ownership programs
  • There are many travel clubs that offer substantial benefits to their owners and that have trade-in programs

2) Trade-in to a Mainstream Timeshare

What is a Mainstream Timeshare?
A timeshare is a property, or the right to use a property, typically a resort condominium unit, in which multiple parties have the right-to-use.
