I can't get out to WDW until 2010 so have had to rent my points out. So far I am in the process of letting out my points to three separate DIS members. All seems to be going well so far and am very excited for the members that I have booked holidays for.

This lady above is a godsend .She has saved us a fortune to stay in a lovely resort for half the price it would of cost if we booked direct.I highly recommend renting and Sue is very trustworthy.I recommend it to anyone especially if you want to stay onsite.Why pay all that extra

We rented our points last year to 4 US families and one UK person from this board. All went very well and they all said they were happy.

Remember if you rent your points out, you have to declare the income to the Inland Revenue who take a hefty chunk!

We rented points from a lovely lady in the US prior to buying into DVC simply becasue we wanted to try before we bought

Before renting we took and checked references with previous Amercian and English renters from the same lady. For us everything went really well but be careful you can read some real horror stories here on the dis

Thumbs up Done Both

Hi there,

I have rented out points to a lady Stateside and again rented from a fellow UK member. My main reason is that I am in the military and little things like conflicts,wars and general military duties get in the way of planning holidays.

This show be easier as I am about to medically discharged sometime this year due to injuries. So I will try to get 2 or 3 WDW holidays from this annual pass.

Can you not offset the annual dues and an element of the initial purchase price, ie 1/50th x number of points and annual dues at $x per point from the income before the taxman grabs his share?
