FAQ About Hilton Timeshares
How Much does a Hilton Timeshare Cost?
Hilton has stated that the average cost for a new Hilton timeshare is about $22,000, but this is if the timeshare is purchased through Hilton. The cost depends on several factors – with significant savings if a package of Hilton timeshare points is purchased on the resale market.
Hilton sells timeshare as a deeded interest in a particular resort, with points attached that can be used within the Hilton timeshare resort network. The cost is higher if purchased directly from Hilton because of associated sales and marketing costs included in the price that are recouped through the sale. The cost also varies depending on how many points are purchased, with more points needed for larger units or specific, higher demand accommodations such as West 57th Street by Hilton Club on Manhattan in New York City.
Timeshare resale prices are lower because those sales and marketing costs are not included since buyers are purchasing directly from existing owners. That can save 50-60% off the cost by buying resale – with savings even higher depending on the home resort and the points package.
Buyers should first assess their needs regarding size and location of the timeshare – whether you need a one- or two-bedroom unit or would a studio unit suffice? Would your family rather have a home resort in Orlando at a resort such as Hilton Grand Vacations Club at SeaWorld or does a Hawaii location make more sense at Grand Waikikian or The Bay Club at Waikoloa Beach Resort? As a point of reference, a one-bedroom unit for a Gold week at Hilton SeaWorld will require 3,400 points, while a two-bedroom needs 5,000 points. You can see 5,000 points listed on our site for as little as $4,000, so looking online for Hilton timeshare resales makes a lot of sense before jumping into a purchase at the resort.
Is a Hilton Timeshare a Good Investment?
The answer depends on your definition of the word investment. Timeshares are not a financial investment since they depreciate in value in the vast majority of cases – including Hilton timeshares.
This isn’t to say they aren’t a good buy, since the product is a use product and the real value is in the vacations and shared experiences they provide with families and friends. This is why the industry refers to timeshare as a lifestyle investment – because you are investing time into your experiences and relationships rather than making it about a financial investment.
The financial outlay for a timeshare is about locking in future vacations at today’s prices – as a way to hedge against inflation for future vacations. Hotel room prices always seem to be on the rise, so buying a timeshare is a way to keep the costs consistent. However, when buying on the resale market you will see savings as much as 60 percent compared to resort retail prices. This saves buyers thousands of dollars upfront. Even considering the annual maintenance fees, prorating the purchase price and annual fees over a 20- or 30-year ownership period makes the overall yearly average cost of accommodation a great deal considering the high-quality accommodation you get in a Hilton timeshare.
For example, take a look at an Orlando timeshare at Hilton Grand Vacations Club at SeaWorld. You’ll see 5,000 points on our site as low as $4,000 for a week during Gold season. That will get you use of a two-bedroom unit with kitchen and spacious living room and dining areas in addition to the privacy you will want while on vacation. Considering the average yearly maintenance fee is about $1,000, prorating the total cost over 20 years and you’ll get the unit for about $1,200 for the week, or about $170 a night. For a luxury two-bedroom vacation unit at a Hilton resort.
Unlike paying for a hotel room each year, at least you can sell your Hilton timeshare and make some money back on your initial outlay.
How does Hilton Timeshare Work?
The Hilton timeshare program works similar to the way a travel club works – which is why they tend to refer to themselves as a vacation club. The buyer purchases an interest in the club, which is deeded to one of the resorts within the Hilton timeshare network. That establishes the resort as your “home” resort, giving you certain privileges at that resort such as an early booking window to reserve your reservation.
Points are allocated to the owner, which function as a type of vacation currency to be used to book vacation accommodation at Hilton timeshare resorts. Owners purchase their timeshare according to a color-coded season, which specifies the time of year you can use your points to book accommodation. Seasons are Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze, with Platinum being the highest level with the most popular weeks. Many of the higher demand resorts only offering the higher Platinum and Gold level memberships.
These seasons allow for a specific timeframe for booking weeks. For example, Hilton Grand Vacations at the Boulevard in Las Vegas designates weeks 51-52 as Platinum weeks, which reserves the high demand Christmas holiday season for Platinum owners.
Costs vary by season, so keep this in mind if you have a specific time of the year that you like to take a vacation. Remember that if your schedule is flexible, you can find some real bargains in the lower Silver or Bronze tiers such as off-peak October or December weeks in places like Marco Island.
Points are also connected to the size of unit you prefer for your vacations. The larger the unit, the more points are needed to stay in that unit. Take this into account as you prioritize the size of unit you need on vacation when you look for points packages.
Once your buy your Hilton timeshare points deeded to your home resort, you can go into the Hilton system and look for available vacation accommodation. You will have a priority early booking window at your home resort between 12 months and 9 months prior to your requested week. After 9 months, you can search the remaining available weeks at other resorts within the network.
You can also use your points to vacation at one of the 5,500 resorts within the Hilton Honors rewards program or exchange the use of your points to stay at a resort affiliated with exchange provider RCI.
