So, How Much Does a Hilton Timeshare Maintenance Fees Cost?

Buying Hilton timeshares can vary in cost depending on resorts, locations, unit types, seasons, and weeks. Similarly, costs for Hilton timeshare maintenance fees change based on the resort, unit type, and season instead of by the Hilton Grand Vacations ClubPoints associated with the ownership. During peak seasons, a 1-Bedroom Penthouse may be worth more ClubPoints, but its maintenance fees may be lower than an off-season 3-Bedroom. At the end of the day, it could cost thousands of dollars to initially buy a Hilton timeshare directly from Hilton. If you want to save money, purchasing on the resale market is a great way to get started or add to your existing ownership for less.
