Posting and Renting Your Timeshare

So, you want to rent your timeshare? We can help! Post your timeshare for rent on, where your offer will be exposed to a community of more than 3 million owners and travelers.

Here are some guidelines to help you with your timeshare rental, start-to-finish:

  1. Contact your resort

    Each resort has different policies and procedures you should be aware of before trying to rent your timeshare. Take a few minutes to call your resort with a few quick questions to avoid any surprises along the way.

    Questions to ask:

    • Am I free to rent my timeshare? Are there any restrictions?
    • If I rent my timeshare, will you charge me any fees to make the transfer (i.e. commissions, guest certificate fees, transfer fees, etc.)?
    • How will I transfer the use of my timeshare week into a guest's name? Will you send them a confirmation directly? Do I need to give you a certain amount of lead time?
    • What weekly rate do you charge renters for the week and unit size that I own? (this will help you with step #2)
  2. Post your timeshare for rent on

    You have some options for posting your rental on RedWeek: you can do-it-yourself or get additional help from RedWeek. See our side-by-side comparison to help you decide.

    • Full-service rentals

      With the full-service rental option — you submit an application with your reservation details and send us your confirmation letter. We will verify your details, add your posting for you, and manage your inquiries. Your rental will include our online booking system - it will be finalized using our digital rental agreement and credit card handling, so you can offer these conveniences to your renter without handling the details.

    • DIY (do-it-yourself) rentals

      With the DIY rental option, you post your own rental and choose whether to use RedWeek's online booking system for the rental agreement and payment handling, or manage your own transaction. If you're not using RedWeek's system, members interested in renting your timeshare will e-mail you directly through your posting page to coordinate the transaction. Make sure to check your e-mail frequently, and watch your Message Box on RedWeek for copies of any inquiries that you might have missed.

      If doing it yourself, please review our posting dos and don'ts, and take a look at our What's Your Timeshare Worth tool to guide your own pricing.

  3. Finalize the rental agreement and payment

    All rentals that use RedWeek's online booking system include the building of the rental agreement and payment handling. When you have a renter, you will just need to approve the offer, call your resort to make the name change, and request a new confirmation.

    If you chose not to use online booking, RedWeek won't be involved in the actual transaction. You are free to choose your own accepted payment methods - we suggest one that offers your renter protections to help them feel comfortable.

  4. Deactivate your rental posting and post next year's dates

    Make sure to remove your posting when the unit is no longer available for rent. You can do this through the My Postings section of your Account page. As soon as you have a reservation for the following year, make sure to get it posted as early as possible.

That's it! Please be sure to let us know how everything went.

Quick Tips:

If you are hoping to rent a week obtained on an exchange through RCI or Interval International, or some sort of bonus week, be sure to check the terms of use laid out by the company first.

Include as much detail as possible about your timeshare unit, the surrounding location, and anything else you want a potential renter to know.

As your rental date approaches, if you haven't found a renter, try lowering your asking price or adding more detail and photos to your posting.

Remember, your renter may be hesitant to send you a check directly without posting verification, or other guarantees. Please understand their concerns and take steps to ensure a safe, secure transaction that protects you both.
