Congratulations on your new "Home"

We are a family of 6 and have had many a conversation on whether or not to purchase DVC points but don't truely know the full ins and outs of it.

Do you buy a point for a certain amount of pound per point and make sure you have enough to cover your stay.

We always holiday for three weeks, and do opt for two bed villas due to our occupancy requirements.

Please can you help me with the basics !!

How do i know how many DVC points I need to ensure we have enough to cover our three week holidays. Also do you pay for them each year or just once.

When we went to AKL in 2005 they were advertising the Villas and DVC back then. Could kick myself now for now enquiring at the time.

Thank you for your help!!!

I started to type how it works then read it and thought you will be more confused now

if you go to the frequently asked questions dvc at the top of the dvc uk page that might give you a start . there is also a dvc section o its own further down from the UK bit with a wealth of info.

In addition to the FAQs sticky above, try the current thread: Help - I'm DVC ignorant! and I recommend following the link in post 13; a very good help guide by Halo.
