Member Resources – Resales
We realize that many members have been a family of the Club for 20, 30 or more years. There comes a time when you could no longer take advantage of the vacation benefits offered by your RAVC membership. Before letting go of your membership, which you have fully paid for, please consider gifting, donating, renting or selling your membership:
• Gift your membership to a friend or family member so they can enjoy a lifetime of vacations at RAVC’s eight vacation destinations, as well as thousands more around the world through exchanges. If they are unfamiliar with the benefits of an RAVC membership, they can visit our website at www.ravc.com for a wealth of information – or contact us at 1-800-367-5212. We will be more than happy to work with them and show them how to best use the membership you have so generously given to them.
• Donate your membership to your favorite non-profit organization, your church, or to charity auctions – they are always looking for donations to raise much needed cash, and you could qualify for a tax deduction (ask your accountant).
• Sell your membership on eBay, Craigslist, or other on-line advertising sites such as Redweek (www.redweek.com) or the Timeshare Users Group (www.tug2.net). You need to be reasonable with your asking price (after all, you had already enjoyed years of vacation with your membership). Be very cautious when someone asks you for a large sum of money, your credit card number or your bank information before they even start to sell your membership. If a promise sounds too good to be true, it probably is!
o ARDA Resort Owners’ Coalition (ARDA-ROC) is a non-profit program sponsored by the American Resort Development Association, dedicated to preserving, protecting and enhancing vacation ownership. ARDA-ROC provides valuable general information on timeshare ownership and it also sponsors a Timeshare Resale Resource Center. It is highly recommended that you visit the site for many helpful information and tips about the reselling process.
