2021 Hilton Grand Vacations Club Fees & Dues

hgvc fees dues 2021

Purchasing Hilton Grand Vacations Club ownership on the resale market is a great way to cure sticker shock and make Hilton timeshares more affordable, but Hilton resales do not absolve owners from HGV fees or annual dues. Before making a Hilton resale purchase, there are some financial considerations that should be thoroughly reviewed and understood in order to ensure the best vacation experience possible. In order to make this simpler, we’ve broken down all of the HGV fees and dues so that prospective (and current) members can make the most of vacation ownership.

Open Season Rates

Hilton Grand Vacations Club’s Open Season program allows HGVC owners to reserve last-minute accommodations at HGVC resorts at a discounted nightly rate without using club points. The cost varies depending on the desired resort, unit size and season. Reservations must be made within 30 days of the proposed stay, have a minimum 2-night stay, are for Club Members Only and all bookings are subject to availability.

In previous years, Open Season Rates were set by season and check-in dates (i.e. Monday through Thursday vs. Friday through Sunday). As of 2021, the Open Season Nightly Rental Rates now vary from resort to resort. Another change to the 2021 posted Open Season Rates is the added discount of booking a 7 night week.

The 2021 Open Season Nightly Rental Rates vary from $79 per night (for a studio, Silver season, with a Monday through Thursday check-in) ranging up to $621 per night (for a 3 bedroom premier, Platinum season, Friday through Sunday check-in). Contact a Fidelity Agent for more details.

RCI Exchange Fees

One of the greatest benefits of the Hilton Grand Vacations Club program is the ability to exchange club points for a stay at a non-Hilton resort via the RCI network. The fees associated with this exchange are listed below, but note that reservations made via phone incur an additional service charge (usually no more than $10). Additional housekeeping fees may also be applied by the resort.
