Considering economic variables changing from time to time, the time-varying models can fit the financial data better. In this paper, we construct stochastic volatility models with time-varying coefficients. Furthermore, the interest rate risk is one of important factors for timer options pricing. Therefore, we study the timer options pricing for stochastic volatility models with changing coefficients under time-varying interest rate. Firstly, the partial differential equation boundary value problem is given by using \(\Delta\)-hedging approach and replicating a timer option. Secondly, we obtain the joint distribution of the variance process and the random maturity under the risk neutral probability measure. Thirdly, the explicit formula of timer option pricing is proposed which can be applied to the financial market directly. Finally, numerical analysis is conducted to show the performance of timer option pricing proposed.
