    Redweek has Vidanta resorts rental option but I heard vidanta is not allowing guests certificate.

    HI, I am looking to book Grand Bliss at vidanta Nuevo Vallarta. One of my friends who owns timehshare/II was trying to book it for me but realized in fine prints that vidanta is not allowing guests certificates. So, I thought to search on redweek and was seeing multiple listing for luxxe...

    Selling using RedWeek

    I have signed up for TUG and listed my timeshare for sale (free) under MARKETPLACE and the BARGAIN BIN area. I also have my timeshare listed with RedWeek. Has anyone else used RedWeek? On TUG, I listed as an individual and then plan to refer any buyer to RedWeek. Is that how it works?? Or...

    Redweek asking for MORE info in order to list a timeshare rental

    I have used Redweek for several years to list my timeshare weeks that my wife and I cannot use. It has been pleasantly profitable, renting weeks for well more than the MFs. As recently as last year, all they needed to verify my rental was a screenshot from the Vistana website, and an email...

    Redweek Full Service is the WORST!

    I've complained about this before. I'm sure that posts can be found here. But, I found a great deal on a timeshare I wanted to purchase last week from Redweek. I immediately reached out and requested Estoppel and gave them a number I was comfortable with for the purchase. Received a reply back...

    Redweek Question - Selling my Hyatt TS

    I'm trying to sell my Hyatt High Sierra Lodge Gold Week. I posted an ad here on TUG and am considering paying for an ad on Redweek.com but I have a few questions I hope someone can answer: 1) Is paying to advertise a unit on Redweek worth it? Do folks buy TS from that site? 2) Redwee doffers...

    How important is the Redweek verified? RCI

    Hi, I am an owner of 2 weeks, week 52 and 1 of a resort in Aruba and so far if I haven't gone there myself, I have been using the Redweek for renting my units. Up until now, I haven't had any issues and because these are popular weeks, I have always had it rented if I posted it myself, with no...

    WWYD? I rented my 2023 Maui Ocean Club week using Redweek's full service. Renter contacted me yesterday stating: Hello, I accidentally booked this thinking it was for 2022. We've spoken to Redweek as we do a lot of business with them. We will still take the unit next year but would like to...

    RedWeek Extends Listing Expiry Date

    Just received an email informing me that RedWeek had extended the Expiry-Date on all my pending "Active" listings. All my "Active" listings now have an Expiry-Date == Check-In-Date. Albeit small but still nice gesture.

    RedWeek.com - Verified & Protected

    RedWeek have introduced a new feature called Verified & Protected. Its a higher cost than the standard listing but they claim it offers the renter more protection. They verify unit is valid and create the listing and handle payments, but don't pay out to lister/owner until 2 days after...

    RedWeek Full Service Listings

    Just wanted to post this for new buyers and for people who are looking to sell their weeks. I find RedWeek Full Service Listings deceptive. They don't tell their upfront closing costs and they add $300 to 500 to the cost of the deal. Sometimes it is enough to make it unworkable. So I don't...

    Redweek Resale.. SLOW!!

    I am *TRYING* to purchase a resale timeshare week from redweek. The process has been painfully slow. I am constantly following up to check status. It seems like every step of the way takes days and days.. Is this standard? You would think a large company would have the process down pat. I had my...

    Bad Redweek Experience

    Normally our experiences with Redweek.com are fairly positive but I ran into a really frustrating problem yesterday while attempting to rent a week that they had listed. The week we were after was in Hawaii and it was being handled by a Redweek.com for the owner. We had several questions...

Most rentals go smoothly but this morning I got the following message in response to a RedWeek ad I have posted: Hi Michael - we are interested in renting your time share. Can we get the owner details so...

    Warning to Timeshare Sellers about Redweek Full Service

    I don't know if this is the right place to post my frustration. But, here goes. I've now twice attempted to purchase timeshares via redweek. On both transactions which were "full service" transactions, the Redweek agents were just completely unhelpful or maybe uninformed causing the seller to...

    Too good to be true?

    I have been following listings for Marriott's Grande Vista since end of October and there has been one there for 750$ and its still there, seems too good to be true and the fact that it is still there makes me think that even more. Want to educate myself as to what to be looking for as would be...
