Why do timeshare owners rent out their timeshares?
Timeshare owners rent out their timeshares when they are unable to use them due to scheduling or other conflicts. An owner trying to sell his or her vacation property who does not yet have a buyer may also choose to rent out his or her timeshare. Owners benefit from renting out their timeshares because they can use the rental payment to cover their maintenance fees and taxes, while travelers benefit from great deals on quality resort vacations.
What are the benefits of renting a timeshare?
Hotels often charge high nightly rates and cost more than renting a timeshare for the equivalent services. When you rent a timeshare, you’ll enjoy larger accommodations and access to the same resort amenities as the owner of the timeshare. Plus, timeshare resorts generally offer more amenities than hotels and motels to make guests feel more comfortable. Renting a timeshare is also a great way to familiarize yourself with a certain resort before buying.
Are timeshare rentals only available in one- or two-week intervals?
No, there are many timeshare rentals available for a few nights or a single night. The timeshare owner decides how many nights he or she rents out. As their scheduled date draws nearer, owners typically become more negotiable about the rental price.

Typically, although a few offer short durations, timeshare rentals are available in one- or two-week intervals. Many rentals are so much cheaper, that you can even rent the week and only stay for a few days, while still saving money.
How can I be sure that my timeshare rental is reserved?
When you rent a timeshare, both you and the owner will sign a rental agreement before the rental week. The rental agreement protects you and the owner. The agreement states that you, the renter, will pay in full for your rental. Once the owner receives your payment, he or she will inform the resort that you’ll be staying during the agreed-upon period and obtain either a confirmation or guest passes for you. Both parties should have copies of the agreement, which ensures that the owner receives payment for the use of the timeshare and that the renter has a timeshare reserved in his or her name.
