Selling your timeshare can be confusing. Timeshare exit scams are real. The first thing you need to know is that anyone asking for money upfront is a red flag.

The good news is that there are some safe options out there and RCI is here to help arm you with knowledge that can help you make the right decision for you and your family while protecting yourself from timeshare exit scams.

Determined to Sell Your Timeshare: Where To Start?

Your first call should be your home resort or your home owners association (HOA), as they may be able to help with a variety of solutions.

Other Good Options to Consider:

  1. If permitted by your home resort’s policy, consider renting your timeshare to friends and family.
  2. Selling your timeshare either directly or through a verified reseller.
  3. Pay the gift of timeshare forward and transfer it to a friend or family member. Remember that the laws and regulations on transfer will vary state to state.
  4. Donate your timeshare to a charity. Make sure to check with your tax advisor and research costs beforehand.

Stay Smart, Avoid Scams

We would never contact you via phone, mail, or online about selling your timeshare.

If anything seems fishy, like an invite to an “RCI Update Meeting” or an offer to sell your “Getaway Weeks or “Bonus Weeks” for an upfront fee, or you think you’ve been a target of a scam, please fill out the form below. It goes straight to our experts who will review and be in touch shortly.

We want you to know that we take scams directed toward our members very seriously. We’re working with the American Resort Development Association (ARDA) and American Resort Development Association-Resort Owners Coalition to help protect and guide our subscribing members through the selling process. See the disclaimer below for more details.*

*Disclaimer: RCI is aware that entities not affiliated with RCI are contacting timeshare owners ("Owners") and incorrectly stating or implying that they are RCI, authorized by RCI to make offers, or they are affiliated with RCI. These entities may offer to assist in the sale or rental of Owners' timeshare interests for an upfront fee (e.g. offering rental services for Owners' "Getaway Weeks" or "Bonus Weeks" for an up-front fee), or they may invite an Owner to attend an informational "RCI Update meeting" to discuss updates to RCI exchange programs. Please exercise caution if you are contacted by anyone claiming to be related to RCI and contact RCI directly with any questions.

RCI also has been informed that certain resale service providers are offering to sell the timeshare interests of Owners, some of whom are RCI members, and thereby relieve the Owner of her or his ongoing maintenance fee obligation, in exchange for payment of up-front fees and execution of a power of attorney to sell the Owner's timeshare interest. Owners receiving such offers may wish to consult with an attorney and/or their resort to confirm that a transfer of ownership and the corresponding maintenance fee obligation will occur as represented and any resulting sale or rental will be honored.

RCI values its members and supports efforts by the American Resort Development Association (ARDA) and American Resort Development Association-Resort Owners Coalition to help consumers and timeshare owners navigate through the secondary market. While some entities are legitimate resellers or rental agents of timeshare inventory, others are not. For additional information, please see ARDA'S ROC website consumer advisories. If you feel that you have been a victim of one of these scams, please contact your state's attorney general's office or if the need arises, your local law enforcement may be able to assist you.
