Hello.
I need some help and or suggestions on how I go about renting weeks I have saved. In the 10 years I have had my timeshares I have never done this & I now have 3 saved weeks that are coming due & need to use them or lose them! Can anyone offer some suggestions & ideas to me?
Thank you :),
Jack

Welcome to TUG! :hi:

At the top of this forum is an article entitled, "How to Rent Your Timeshare." That's where you should start.

Right now travel is depressed, and a lot of people are trying to rent their timeshare, so the number one thing you need to do to rent your week in this economy is to price your week slightly below the competition, and advertise it widely on the free and low-cost rental websites. (But not the ones with a high up-front fee.)

If the check-in date is within 45 days of today's date, consider listing it on the TUG Last Minute Rental Board, but note that the most you can ask there is $100 per night. In TUG's regular classified Ads (Timeshare Marketplace) you can ask what ever you want.

You should also have a back up plan if it doesn't rent. If you want to deposit it with an exchange company, you should know the deadlines for depositing.

Please let us know what question you may have after reading the article, but please note that you cannot post the specifics of your rental on this board, because of the no-advertising rules.

Good luck!
