Some believe renting DVC points is the best way to save money while staying at a DVC resort during your next Disney vacation. If you are considering renting Disney Vacation Club points, it's important to understand every aspect of the rental process. Below, we discuss the pros and cons of renting DVC points.

 How does Disney Vacation Club Work?

Disney Vacation Club is a vacation ownership program where you are allotted a certain amount of DVC points every year to use at select resorts across Walt Disney World, Disneyland, and vacation destinations in Hawaii, Florida, and South Carolina. Your point allotment renews every year until your DVC contract expires. If you do not use all of your DVC points in one year, they will expire if you don't bank them for a future year. Sometimes, members still have points left over in a year, even after enjoying a vacation and banking other points for the future. In this circumstance, some owners may be willing to rent out their unused points to guests wishing to stay at a DVC resort. 

How to Rent DVC Points

For renting DVC Points, consider the following two options:

Direct Renting DVC Points 

Find a trustworthy DVC owner and ask him to give up their DVC points in a way that they won't take your money and run. Guests usually connect with direct renters through social media and online forums. 

Point Broker

The second option is to go through any point broker specializing in renting DVC points. This option can be more involved than contacting a direct owner, but it could offer more security for your purchase and flexibility with payment options and discounts. 

Pros and Cons of Renting DVC Points

If you want to know the ins & outs of the DVC rental process, let's take a look at the pros and cons compiled by the DVC Sales team.

PROS

  • The most considerable aspect of renting DVC points is saving money while staying at a DVC resort stay than you would by booking a DVC resort room directly from Disney.  
  • DVC resorts offer deluxe accommodations, allowing you to experience the best options when it comes to on-site Disney Resorts.
  • Selecting points while renting DVC points is pretty flexible. For instance, reserving DVC resorts through a third party is quite problematic. 
  • Renting the DVC Points is smooth sailing. Disney offers many discounts, but those are unpredictable and you have to keep checking back to ensure you're getting the best price. When you rent DVC points, your savings are clear. 
  • Renting DVC points doesn't demand any long-term commitment. You don't need to pay membership dues or other fees that go along with being a DVC owner. 

CONS

  •  DVC rental points have limited availability because they depend on the time and year. If you want to rent DVC points for your vacation, you'll need to be flexible with your vacation dates and desired resort.
  •  Most of the rental agreements don't allow for the cancellation of points.
  • You owe full payment for confirming the reservation all at once.
  •  In renting DVC Points, you have less control over the situation. For instance, you have to trust the owner that they won't take your money and cancel your reservation. 

The Bottom Line

Many people enjoy staying at a DVC resort for less by renting DVC points. However, while it may seem easy to rent DVC points, it comes with a fair amount of risk. Instead of risking your money with a third-party site or giving random strangers on the internet hundreds of dollars in hopes they'll book a room for you, we suggest buying a DVC resale contract with DVC Sales. You'll save 20 - 50% off direct Disney pricing while enjoying many of the benefits of becoming a DVC member. For more information, our  DVC Sales guides are here to assist you.
