In all likelihood, you will have received a lot of different, conflicting answers about your timeshare already!
If and when you contact you timeshare group/resort to talk about getting out of your contract, giving it back to them or even trying to sell... please remember that you are asking the very people who have the most to lose. Your timeshare contract, which may run for another 40 or 50 years, or even in perpetuity, is worth a lot of money to them (see how much here), so they have a huge vested interest in keeping you as a fee-paying customer. The advice they give you is highly likely to be clouded & biased and we very often hear that the Timeshare resorts use these approaches as a way to generate more sales, by trying to "upgrade" or replace existing timeshare contracts with new products such as Fractional ownership. Please beware!
At Timeshare Advice Centre, we're different. We're an entirely independent organisation offering truly unbiased, expert advice & services. We are neither funded by, nor "partners with", the timeshare groups/resorts, the timeshare industry lobby, timeshare resellers or any other self-interested parties.

When they were first sold their timeshares, many owners were promised that their timeshare "investment" would hold its value - or even increase in value - and that it could be sold at a later date. Such promises were also used to explain why it was advantageous for the contract to be 'in perpetuity'. The reality is that your timeshare contract actually has no resale value - as evidenced by the fact that there are hundreds of timeshares for sale on websites like eBay for next to nothing, but they never sell. You can see examples here.
This is also why the "timeshare resale" companies try to charge up-front if you use them to try and sell your timeshare. They know that no-one will buy - and that they make all their income from listing fees. So please find out your Timeshare Relinquishment Options today.
The real question should be 'What is my timeshare contract worth to my timeshare resort/group?'
As per the previous Q/A, timeshare sadly has no resale value. However your timeshare contract certainly DOES have a significant value to your timeshare group/resort, as it is (a) likely to have a very long term still to run and (b) includes a legal requirement for you to pay ever-increasing maintenance fees at a rate of set by the timeshare group/resort, throughout the remainder of the contract term.

Every case is different and there are a wide number of factors which may affect the amount of work involved - and therefore the costs - for arranging for you to fully, finally and legally relinquishing your contract. What we can tell you is that we will only take up your case, whether for relinquishing your timeshare contract, pursuing a compensation claim (or both), if we are fully confident that we will be able to successfully complete the process on your behalf.
