success renting points?

hi everyone

looks like we will not be able to make use of our points next year.

has anyone had much success renting points recently?

If so, did you try to rent to someone from the UK or does it not matter?

Did you have a contract or just trust your renter?

It will be my first time renting so any help would be appreciated.

Hi Wendy,

Are you not able to bank the points?

I rented a few points a while ago. I put them up on the rental board here.
Be prepared for people to ask for availability for a short time ahead. It seems that the Americans only think of renting a couple of months in advance.

I did end up with a lovely renter, we used a copy of a contract that is up on the DVC boards here. She only wanted a couple of nights, so had no problem with paying the whole amount through paypal as soon as we had a confirmed reservation.

You will need the name and address details of anyone you make a reservation for, as well as back up choices for dates and hotels.

Hope this helps a bit, any questions I will try my best to help.

Hi Wendy,

So you've got a while to think about what to do with them then.

I am about to go on a trip to Disneyland Paris with a whole years worth of points because we couldn't use them for WDW. It is not exactly a good use of points, but we are staying at the Disneyland Hotel, which we wouldn't pay to do, for my eldest DDs 18th birthday.

I don't know why Crabbie1 couldn't PM me? I haven't had any problems with receiving them before.

I would agree that most Americans are trying to find something 6 to 8 weeks in advance.

I have rented out points to some people before without issue. I ensure that a contract be signed to protect yourself and the renter.

Hey there,

We have successfully rented and transferred through the Rent\Trade forum a number of times without any problems - mosty to U.S. DISboard members. If renting, you may have to call MS a couple of times to find availability etc, but that aside, it has worked really well for us
