RedWeek Verified

The "RedWeek Verified" flag on a posting means we have confirmed the accuracy of key details, so you can feel confident in your transaction. Everything you see in the green RedWeek Verified box on a posting page has been reviewed, confirmed, and validated by RedWeek staff.

A "Verified & Protected" flag on a rental posting means it has been verified and is bookable online with RedWeek Booking Protection. On these, we do a second verification that the reservation is in your name, and funds are held until after you check-in, so you can ensure you get what you paid for.

What is the difference between "RedWeek Verified" and "Verified & Protected"?

"RedWeek Verified" means we have confirmed key details of the owner's offering. Rental postings marked "Verified & Protected" use our online booking system with RedWeek booking protection. There is a defined rental agreement, online credit card payment, and a second verification that the guest name has been updated. Funds are held until after check-in to ensure the renter gets what they paid for.

How does RedWeek verify postings?

We require owners to send a copy of their reservation (for rental verification), deed or certificate of ownership, purchase agreement, and current maintenance statements (for resale verification) to verify that they do, in fact have the timeshare unit or points available to rent or sell. We confirm and clarify the information provided with the resort and/or management company as necessary.

What does verification guarantee?

Verification confirms the unit was available as described at a point in time - likely when the owner first purchased the posting. RedWeek does not take ownership of the week at that point, and the owner or resort can make changes to reservations without our knowledge. When renting or buying a timeshare, we always recommend taking all safety precautions, such as using RedWeek's online booking system to handle the funds whenever possible.

Can I verify a floating week or points?

If you are selling a floating or timeshare points ownership, you can have your posting verified only with the full-service resale option.

For rentals, you must have a confirmed reservation. You will need to make a reservation first, then post that week using either Full-Service or DIY Verified and Protected.

Can I verify a week obtained through exchange?

No. Both RCI and II prohibit the rental of weeks obtained through their exchange systems; RedWeek cannot verify this type of timeshare rental.
