Starwood Vacation Ownership allows you to rent your timeshare out to other travelers. Using a broker to find a renter for your week can be beneficial because brokers have access to people who want to rent. A timeshare broker will advertise your property, a cost you would most likely have whether or not you hired a broker. Finally, a broker will know the best way to protect you, the best way to ensure that you get the amount for which you have agreed to rent your property. That alone may make hiring a broker a good decision.
