    Rules for new threads in the timeshare section

    Dear members,

    the timeshare section is moderated now. This means every new thread will be reviewed by a moderator to check if it follow the rules below.

    When listing your timeshare for rent, please list the following:


    • Name of resort
    • Location: Palm Beach, Eagle Beach, Druif Beach, Inland or other.
    • Available Dates as well as the timeshare "week"
    • Occupancy capacity (sleeps 2, or 4 or however many as well as configuration such as 1 king bed in the master bedroom and pullout queen sleeper sofa in living room)
    • Price of rental OR "will consider reasonable offers" and Daily timeshare tax and energy surcharge amounts

      is the unit a..........
      1 bedroom
      2 bedroom
      3 bedroom
      studio


    All of these must be in the "for rent" posting. When the posting comes thru, Jacki or I will check for completeness and then it will be posted.

    Rental of Interval or RCI exchange/deposit weeks are not allowed as those are strictly prohibited by those exchange companies.

    Please do not post a phone number.

    Thank you all for your cooperation and thank you for visiting the Aruba.com site.

    very important addendum: please add in the additional tax to your for rent timeshare
    as of Aug 1, 2013

    In 2010 the government abolished half of the Turn-Over Tax (BBO), from 3% to 1 ½ %, to improve the buying power of both visitors and residents. However, to be able to finance and implement projects to enhance and protect the environment, the government has reached a new fiscal reform in agreement with the business community and the unions. Part of the reform will have an impact on the tourism industry as well. For the hotel and timeshare sector, the government will introduce an “Environmental Levy” as per August 1, 2013, with a fixed fee as follows:
    - US$10 per studio
    - US$15 per one bedroom
    - US$25 per two or three bedrooms


    For timeshare owners, this levy is a one-time fee for continuous usage during your owned interval. As such, if you own multiple consecutive weeks, you would be charged only once during your visit. If you own non-consecutive weeks, you will be charged for each stay. Similarly, owners transferring from one resort to another will be charged for a new stay. Hotel or transient guests will be charged US$ 3 per day. Timeshare owners renting additional nights before or after their interval stay will be subjected to the daily fee in addition to their fixed fee.
