What is the process for renting out my timeshare unit?
The answer to this question is unfortunately not as simple as the question.
There are various ways you are able to go about renting out your timeshare unit should you not be making use of it, and these of course come with their own unique set of challenges, namely:
Renting it out to either colleagues, friends or family members
Both of the above approaches can of course lead to untold frustration, broken promises and a loss of income as friends/family/colleagues will of course want to rent your unit for as little as possible. On the other hand, taking the "bull by the horns"and trying to advertise it privately without the help of an agent, can be just as frustrating due to the number of timeshare scams that have befallen this industry, the public are often very wary of dealing direct with an owner and handing over large sums of money.
We at Timeshare Getaways have a proven track record with regards to the handling of rentals on behalf of our clients, and would value the opportunity to assist you with your rental. In order for us to do this, we would require a Rental Mandate to be completed which would provide us with your personal details as well as your unit details.
Once we have achieved the mandated rental amount agreed upon, and the client has made the deposit, funds are paid over to you immediately, with no waiting period.
It is your responsibility as the owner to inform the resort that a guest will be checking into your unit, as they do not take instruction from Agents.
You may be required to complete and return a “”Notification of Guest” form that will be forwarded onto you directly from the resort.
You will have to furnish the resort with these details amongst others, unit number, date of occupation / week number, to / from , tenant name/surname, tenant address and contact number.
Once the resort is in receipt of the above information they will prepare and forward the Guest Certificate onto you which you in turn would have to forward onto us as your Agents timeously so that we can forward same onto the tenant as they will be required to produce this documentation at time of arrival at the resort.
