Finally getting rid of my money pit of a timeshare!

After having a timeshare for ~18 years, I’m finally going to be rid of that money pit! I got it when I lived in Houston, TX and wanted to go elsewhere and I mainly checked the week into RCI to stay other places.

Over the ~18 years I think I have only done this about ten times, so wasted the week many years. On top of that the maintenance fees went from $40 to now $130/month. Also when you check-in your week to RCI that cost about $200, then to use it cost about $200, then there are other fees. In total, I bet I’ve spent over over $50K with payments and fees over the years 🤬🤯 That would have been MUCH better spent on some amazing vacations!

In case you didn’t know it already, TIMESHARES ARE A SCAM! I’ve tried for years to sell it, for almost nothing the last couple times, and spent $100s on those services.
Was about ready to go with one of the timeshare exit companies and did further research and found out some timeshare now have a FREE SERVICE to release your timeshare back to them!

So, thanks to Reddit, I found out about and just called my timeshare company, Holiday Hills, and have started the process. I had to pay the maintenance for the rest of the year upfront, but they will be sending me papers in the next 8-10 weeks to get signed and notarized and them I’m free of it.

I was talking to Lonestar Transfer and they charge $3,995 UP FRONT and said the process takes about a year and I have to pay maintenance fees during this time, another $1,560.
