Renting DVC

Hello, I realized there is a thread where people rent out points. How does this work? How do you know how many points each place takes? How do you know what places are available?

Go over to the DVC forum. For an estimate google David's DVC, go there and you will get an idea.

people buy timeshare interests in DVC resorts in the form of points. if they cannot use their pts, they may decide they are willing to make a reservation for rental with their pts.

nightly point costs vary by resort and time of year. here are point charts for you:

http://www.wdwinfo.com/disney-vacati...VCpoints.shtml

(they provide weekly numbers to be helpful but there is no discount for staying a full week, nor is there a benefit to starting a stay in a cheaper season. the rate per night is what it is.)

Quote:

you'd have to check with a member. room inventory for pts stays is not available for viewing by non-members.

if you have no idea what you are doing, start with david - he's a broker who can help you along (but do start by reading his FAQ here)

http://www.dvcrequest.com/

here is a link to david's general suggestions on how far in advance you need to book.

DVC rentals are not for everyone. you tend to have to book well in advance, you generally cannot get a refund if you have to cancel, and you should understand that points stays have a very limited housekeeping schedule. the DVC owner will still own the reservation until you check in, so any changes or questions would have to go to the DVC owner - disney will not speak to you about the reservation since you don't own it (once you have the confirmation number, you can verify it online, however.) so keep in mind that you are renting from an individual and not disney directly (which - among other things - means that if disney is offering "free dining", an individual is not going to offer free dining.)
