How Do I Cancel My Starwood Vacation Ownership Timeshare Contract in Honolulu?
(1) Contact Starwood Vacation Ownership Resorts
One option is to contact your resort to see if you can self-negotiate an exit solution directly with the company. Your resort developer, management company, or property owner’s association may have a deed back, or timeshare cancellation program already in place. Keep in mind that your options may be limited once the state-mandated rescission period has passed. You may want to request in advance all cancellation terms and conditions as well as fees that may apply for deed relinquishment.
(2) Rental and Third-Party Resale
Many Starwood Vacation Ownership Timeshare owners in Honolulu attempt to rent out their own vacation intervals, using an online marketplace such as eBay or another rental platform. Be sure to read the Starwood Vacation Ownership member guidelines and rules regarding renting out your own vacation interval. Often restrictions apply to those club members who use third-party rental companies. Guest certificate fees as well as other significant restrictions may apply.
Owners may also look to third-party resale companies to attempt to sell timeshare. We advise that you steer away from upfront online advertising firms that hold themselves out as resale companies. Many of these secondary market companies have no resale licensing at all and typically only apply for a telemarketing license as required by various state laws. If you choose to look at resale, check eBay or other websites that show actual sales of timeshare resales and not just listings. Many timeshares can be bought and are sold for as little as a dollar on the secondary market. Other types of companies that operate in the resale marketplace are travel club/trade-in and transfer groups. These companies are not directly connected to Starwood Vacation Ownership and owners should also use caution when considering using any of these services. Regulatory warnings are issued frequently about the above types of timeshare relief companies and those specific services offered.
