HGVC Maintenance Fees
Owning a Hilton timeshare can be a very rewarding and fun experience. No other brand provides quite the same vacation experiences as the Hilton Grand Vacations Club.
However, there are some regular fees that all timeshare owners must pay. These are called maintenance fees, and owners of Hilton timeshares will have to pay them each year. Here, you’ll learn more about HGVC annual dues and what exactly you’re paying for.
Main Hilton Grand Vacations Club Dues
When considering Hilton timeshare cost, it's important to remember yearly maintenance fees. All owners of Hilton timeshares, regardless of how they purchased it, will have to pay their annual dues. HGVC members usually must pay them by January 1st each year.
Your HGVC annual dues go toward covering a variety of different costs:
- Club Dues: This is the basic annual charge for a Hilton Grand Vacations Club membership.
- Operating Fee: The operating fee covers everything involved with basic resort operations, ongoing maintenance, housekeeping, and more.
- Reserve Fee: This portion of your annual dues goes toward future repair and extensive maintenance needs. This fee is the same amount for all Hilton timeshare owners.
- Real Estate Taxes: This is charged to cover your home resort’s taxes.

- GE Tax: The state of Hawaii imposes a “general excise" tax on all businesses statewide. HGVC resorts in Hawaii will charge an additional yearly fee to help cover this. This only applies to owners of Hilton timeshares in Hawaii.
- Club Access Fee: This annual fee only applies if your home resort is currently in development. The Club Access Fee grants early access into resort before it is open for business.
Other HGVC Fees
In special circumstances, you may encounter some other fees that are not a part of your annual dues. These are mostly one-time fees* that owners pay in exchange for certain requests and services from the Hilton Grand Vacations Club.
