Own HGVC Timeshare?
HGVC Annual Dues
As a prospective member of Hilton Grand Vacations Club (or a current member) it's important to understand the ins and outs of HGVC dues, and it's an important financial consideration when determining if ownership is right for you.
Below you will find a breakdown of the regular Hilton Grand Vacations Club ownership dues and fees, which cover the costs associated with operating, maintaining, and updating your property as needed. For current owners, we hope this information may help you understand your annual statement a bit better. Here is a specific breakdown of Hilton Grand Vacations' annual fees:
- Club Dues: This is what you pay annually to be part of HGVC. If you are a Hilton owner but not a part of HGVC, you do not have to pay this HGVC fee.
- Operating Fee: This is essentially Hilton's maintenance fee. It covers everything involved in keeping the place running like ongoing maintenance, housekeeping, and beautification.
- Reserve Fee: Goes towards future repair and maintenance needs. This amount will be the same for everyone, regardless of resort and unit on your deed.
- Real Estate Taxes: Also self-explanatory, these HGVClub dues cover your share of the taxes for your home resort.
- GE Tax: Applies only if you own in Hawaii. GE tax is the General Excise tax, and Hawaii imposes one on all "business activity".
- Club Access Fee: Only worry about this HGVC annual fee if your home resort is currently in development. This fee grants early access into the Club, before your home resort is built/open for business.
The HGVClub annual dues listed above are just that: annual. Regardless of whether you own an annual or biennial interest or whether or not you have used your timeshare in a given year, you will be responsible for these fees. Dues are generally due the first of every year. The only exception if for new owners, who will pay their fees shortly after they’ve joined, given that they are receiving points good to use in the current year.
Other Hilton Grand Vacations Fees
In addition to your anticipated annual dues, there are a number of instances where you may be charged an additional fee. Below you will find a list of these incidental HGVC fees.
- Depositing points for future use. You absolutely can, but Hilton will charge a $69 fee for doing so online, and $89 if you do so over the phone. On the flip side, you’ll incur no fee if you want to borrow a week.
- Converting your Club Points to HHonors Points. The current conversion rate is 25 HHonors points to 1 Club Point). This conversion will result in a $69 fee (and again, $89 if done over the phone).
- Rescuing points. Putting this year’s points into next year’s account on/before Dec 31st will incur this same $69/$89 fee. Please note that rescued points can only be used to make reservations in the Club/Home Week windows (at Club Resorts) or to make RCI reservations (nightly or weekly) the following year.
- Club Season and Home Resort Season reservations. These require a $49 fee (if made online; the fee is $69 to reserve via phone). That is, if you wish to reserve a week/unit that is anything other than the week/unit your deed represents, be it last-minute or advance, you will have to pay $49. The online fee of $49 includes the changeable option, which allows you to later make changes to your reservation for free. Over the phone, you can purchase the changeable option for an additional $20. Home Season reservations (when you book exactly what you own) incur no fees.
- Changing reservations. If you did not purchase the changeable option as described above, changing your reservation incurs a $49 fee when done online ($89 when done over the phone). You may change a reservation in terms of your unit size, location and length of stay, provided that the new reservation is during the same calendar year as the old.

- Guest reservations. There is a $39 HGVC fee to make a reservation in a guest’s name. Guests can, however, use your home week free of charge. They are not eligible to enjoy your Open Season privileges though, even for a fee.
- Buying HGVC resale. Hilton Grand Vacations charges a $399 membership transfer fee for ownership purchased on the resale marketing. This is a small price to pay, however, when compared to the savings afforded by purchasing from a current owner.
