Being a Disney Vacation Club Member is so rewarding in so many ways and gives families the ability to vacation together while enjoying absolutely beautiful, deluxe accommodations at Disneyland, Walt Disney World, the Disney Beach Resorts, and more.
Sometimes, life gets in the way and you might need to forego your big family vacation for a year or two. Things like a job change, the birth of a child, or countless other events can prevent you from being able to use your vacation points. You can choose to bank that year’s allotment of vacation points as long as you are certain that you’ll be able to use double the points the following year. You also must do it before the last four months of your use year. For example, my use year is April 1st and I need to bank by November 30; timing is everything.
Another option that many folks might not be aware of is renting your vacation points to another family who might want to give the Disney Vacation Club Resorts a try. Why not turn those points into cash the minute you know you’re not going to be able to use them?
One way to rent your points is by using the DVC-Rent/Trade forum over on DISboards.com, but you should be aware that any transactions made between posters are not guaranteed. There needs to be a lot of trust given to and from all parties involved and, while we don’t typically hear of major problems, it’s important to note that these are “at-your-own-risk” transactions. If the thought of trusting complete strangers on the internet even with a signed contract makes you kind of twitchy, you may want to consider using The Timeshare Store to handle the transaction from start to finish for you.
The Timeshare Store specializes in Disney Vacation Club properties and is at your service to help you rent your unused points to families who are looking for a taste of the DVC experience without making the commitment of buying in. The Timeshare Store is accredited with the Better Business Bureau and will be there to assist you every step of the way making renting your points a smooth and seamless transaction. They will handle the entire process from start to finish including checking for availability, booking the actual reservations, collecting payment, and managing everything involved.
If you have an excess of vacation points that you’d like to consider renting out, give the friendly associates at The Timeshare Store a call at 1 (800) 550-6493 to learn more about the process.
