Timeshare Intervals: Questions and Answers

timeshare intervals

Timeshare intervals are one of the most important factors of timeshare ownership. Find out what they are before you buy.

As the saying goes, the first three rules of traditional real estate are location, location, location. But when it comes to timeshares, timeshare intervals come in a very close fourth. Find out what you need to know about intervals and how they affect your timeshare experience.

What Are Timeshare Intervals?

Timeshare intervals are the time period during which you can access your timeshare. Standard intervals are one week long, most often from Saturday to Saturday. Click here for a list of timeshare intervals for 2019. With a fixed week timeshare, you’re locked into the same week forever. If you have a floating week or points-based timeshare, you may end up with a different interval from year to year. More on that below.

What Are the Best Timeshare Intervals?

Not all timeshare intervals are created equal. Red weeks are the highly sought after peak season intervals. You know, the best weeks. Some red weeks are red weeks for all resorts. For example, Thanksgiving and Christmas are always in demand. Other peak times vary from resort to resort. While a ski resort’s peak weeks would revolve around snow, a beach resort would revolve around warm weather. But whatever your resort considers peak times, those red weeks will be more expensive and harder to get.

Do Intervals Affect Exchanges?

With a fixed week timeshare, your interval is stable. However, if you have a floating week timeshare, points-based timeshare, or are participating in an exchange, you’ll need to know about the relative value of timeshare intervals. First, peak intervals are notoriously difficult to reserve. If you’re dreaming of Christmas at the beach, book as soon as you can—and good luck to you. It’s not an easy feat! Second, if you’re looking to exchange your week, it’ll be much easier if you have a good interval. Finally, you may need to buy more points or pay extra to get those in-demand intervals.

Do Intervals Affect Rentals?

Your interval is a key factor in timeshare rental. Red weeks will obviously be more sought-after and therefore easier to rent. And you’ll be able to charge more. If you see yourself wanting or needing to rent out your timeshare from time to time, then a good interval should be a main consideration before you buy. If you’re looking to rent a timeshare, expect to pay more for peak times, just like with any vacation rental. But you’ll probably find some deals in the off-season.

Do Intervals Affect Resale?

Just as your interval affects renting out your timeshare, it will also affect your ability to resell your timeshare if it no longer works for you. Once again, peak intervals will be easier to sell and bring a higher price while less attractive intervals will be more difficult. Click here for other factors that affect resale.

Is your interval working for you? Or is it no longer convenient or impossible to reserve? You don’t have to be stuck with a timeshare you can’t use. Contact us to see how we can help you exit your unwanted timeshare.

Frequently Asked Questions ?

How does PMG get me out of my timeshare contract?

PMG is not a resale, transfer, or donation company. We are consumer advocates—we help to negotiate the release of your timeshare contract obligation. We do not buy, sell, or rent your timeshare. Simply put, we help you to get out of your timeshare contract forever.

How long does the process usually take?

Usually less than 12 months, but it all depends on your situation. Let us help you. Speak to your advisor about the time, and what delays the resorts have put into place to prevent timeshare owners from departing their ownership. If you have a mortgage or past due maintenance fee, the process takes more time.

How much is my timeshare worth?

This is probably going to hurt, but whether you paid $5,000 or $50,000 for your timeshare, the IRS values all timeshares as worthless investments. In addition, that timeshare would have negative value due to the annual maintenance fee bill which compounds year after year. That is until PMG helps you cancel your timeshare.

Can I use your service if I still have a balance owed on my mortgage?

Yes. Whether you bought your timeshare 20 days ago or 20 years ago, PMG has a solution for you and is here to help.

Will my name be off the timeshare?

Yes! Permanently! GUARANTEED!

In addition to getting me out of my timeshare, can you recover the money I’ve already spent on mortgage payments and maintenance fees?

While we are able to recover money in rare cases, beware of any timeshare cancellation company that entices you with the promise of fund recovery. The truth is, the resorts are loath to give back the money they’ve already taken for timeshares.

Are your consumer advocates really “consumer advocates”, or is that just a fancy word for salesperson?

Because most of our clients have had their trust betrayed by timeshare salespeople, we understand how some consumers can become a bit jaded. When you call us for a consultation, that’s exactly what you get, a consultation. At PMG, our job is not to sell you; our job is to help you get out of your timeshare. Which is why we have numerous 5-star reviews and an “A” (excellent) rating from the BCA.

Why should I choose PMG to get me out of my timeshare?

We go above and beyond for our customers by helping to protect you, and have the best success rate in the industry, rated 5-stars by clients. We pride ourselves on providing our customers with the best customer service in the industry. When you contact our company, you speak to a live person, not an automated system or voicemail. We offer a 100% money back guarantee, and we can provide documented proof of our success in helping customers just like you.

What happens after I sign up with you? Will I be apprised of your progress?

At PMG, we pride ourselves on our hands-on, boutique-style customer service, so every new client will work with our expert, experienced team whose job is to keep you in the loop throughout the entire cancellation process. We are always just a phone call away.

How much is your fee?

Not all timeshare experiences are created equal. Some are more complicated than others, and every situation is different. That’s why our trained timeshare elimination consultants will ask you a series of questions designed to determine exactly what needs to be done to terminate your timeshare, how long it will take, and how they can best advocate for you. We will always seek the most cost-effective route for you.

What if I still have more questions?

Canceling a timeshare contract is not a cookie cutter process. With each situation being unique, once you complete the form below an experienced consumer advocate will call you today to discuss your options.
