$95 resort fee

I'm a renter of DVC points, and was just browsing e-bay. I note some sellers are referring to a $95.00 fee charged by Disney upon check-in. I never encountered that before. Does anyone know what that is?

This would not apply to DVC-Resort bookings (except maybe Aulani in Hawaii), but if a DVC member wants to book a stay in a Non-DVC Disney Resort and pay with points, a $95 booking fee is charged. Same for DCL bookings or RCI or II point exchanges.

If someone is selling a DVC resort reservation, and they state it requires a $95 resort fee, run away from this reservation. The seller is trying to resell an RCI trade-in, and this is against RCI's policy. If RCI or DVC find out, you may arrive to find your reservation has been cancelled.

let the buyer beware.

to me this is high risk situation...it's implying that these are not
dvc owners but rci owners willing to attempt a trade in for
those wanting to used dvc villas. [ i don't think this should be
allow], so these vacation club owners , is using dvc to increase
their prices. even to "pass on" the 95$ fee.]

the risk would be on those thinking they are dvc owners. if
something goes wrong, they will just vanish.

100% agree. This is a dead giveaway of someone selling an RCI trade which is prohibited. I wouldn't want to pay that $$ and how up at DVC without a room...

I agree with this except that when my mom booked a OKW with her RCI points she was told the 95.00 fee would be charged at check-in at the resort so I have no idea why or how someone could collect this fee ahead of time. I am sure the expert here will know!

it's not the $95 fee that would be lost. it's the hundreds or thousands of dollars for the reservation that RCI/DVC canceled.

I suspect it is not being collected in advance, but rather the RCI scofflaw is informing their "customer" that the fee will be charged when they check in.

In any event, I also agree with the others. You don't want any part of this. RCI's terms and conditions specifically forbid renting out exchanges or Extra Vacations; you are allowed to be reimbursed the exchange fee and guest certificate fee (adding up to about $250) but no more. RCI actively examines the larger rental sites looking for these sorts of things, and they *do* take action---including canceling confirmed exchanges and suspending the scofflaw's account. About once every few months someone comes to TUG to ask what they can do to get their account turned back on, only to be told "Sorry bub. You broke the rules, and you lose."

That doesn't seem right to me, I understand renting points as an owner is okay, but renting RCI trade in's seems wrong to me, somehow kinda rubs me wrong in my integrity nerve.

I rented once from and owner and it was great...so great I ended up buying in This person on Ebay seems to list all sorts of reservations and SEVERAL from OUR DVC


Oh well, the ball in in MS's court now as they now have the info.

I'm so glad I came across this thread. I was just looking through ebay listings for some rental points and saw this $95 fee and thought, "gee, I don't remember paying that before when I rented from members." What is RCI?

As a PP mentioned, the rules are in violation of RCI agreements and most likely they would need to be the ones that handle it...not DVC.

As for feeling that it is "wrong", it is no more "wrong" than an owner booking a rental room (aside from possibly violating an RCI rule, where DVC permits limited rentals). These people are not depriving an owner of a room, those rooms were already blocked out for an RCI trade by a member. If the room goes unbooked, a member still will not be able to book it. Really, it just deprives another RCI member the ability to book.

First of all, this is not a question of "...possibly violating an RCI rule." It is unquestionably a serious violation of RCI rules. The penalty is cancellation of the reservation, and that is a sanction that RCI is not the least bit hesitant about using.

The "wrong" part is that the person renting an RCI exchange is intentionally placing their customer into a position of extreme risk, without alerting them to the riskiness or consequences...and probably not caring if the customer's vacation is ruined. That's wrong.

As Jim points out, it is quite a bit more "wrong". In one case (RCI) it is forbidden. In the other case (DVC) it is allowed.
