Posted by Lucianna Ramos on Sep 18, 2018 9:36:19 AM

Purchasing Hilton Grand Vacation Club ownership on the resale market is a great way to cure sticker shock and make Hilton timeshares more affordable, but Hilton resales do not absolve owners from club fees or annual dues. Before making a Hilton resale purchase, there are some financial considerations that should be thoroughly reviewed and understood in order to ensure the best vacation experience possible. In order to make this simpler, we've broken down all of the HGV fees and dues so that prospective (and current) members can make the most of vacation ownership.

RCI Exchange Fees

One of the greatest benefits of the Hilton Grand Vacation Club program is the ability to exchange club points for a stay at a non-Hilton resort via the RCI network.

Additional housekeeping fees may also be applied by the resort.
