David’s Vacation Club Rentals

Years ago we learned about a great way to save on deluxe accommodations at Walt Disney World (and other Disney destinations): renting Disney Vacation Club (DVC) points. DVC members own timeshare “points” that they can use for stays at Disney Vacation Club resorts. Sometimes owners are unable to use the points before they expire, so they will “rent” them to others. Using DVC rentals could save you hundreds of dollars compared to booking the same deluxe accommodations through Disney directly!

The DVC resorts where you can stay on rented points include:

Disney allows the general public to book DVC units at very high rates through its regular resort reservations system, when available, calling them “Disney Deluxe Villas.” However, renting points from an owner will typically cost you about half what you’ll pay if you reserve direct through Disney. Not only is renting a great deal, there are some fabulous larger units available that are perfect for big families, groups of family and friends, and people who just plain want a little more room: 1-Bedroom Villas, 2-Bedroom Villas and 3-Bedroom Grand Villas. (Click here to learn more about the different units.) 1-Bedroom and larger Villas are insanely expensive if you book them through Disney, but renting points from an owner brings such units within reach.

Prior to 2005, we rented points directly from DVC owners on four occasions and in each case had no problems at all. In fact, for years we had never heard of anyone being ripped off in a DVC rental situation, but starting in 2006 we began hearing of some instances in which renters were the victims of fraud, and stopped renting directly from owners. If you want to arrange a private transaction with a DVC owner, we recommend being very cautious and doing a lot of research and fact-checking to avoid being ripped off.

However, there is a very easy, completely safe way to rent DVC points: through David’s Vacation Club Rentals.

We’ll be honest with you: it generally costs a little more to use David’s Vacation Club Rentals than it does to make a deal directly with an owner. David charges $14 per point, while direct arrangements tend to run more like $11 to $13 per point. But when you consider how much easier and more secure it is to set up a rental through David’s service, it is completely worth it. And you are still saving a bundle compared with booking directly through Disney.

Here are some examples, based on a 5-night stay in a Studio unit, August 24 through 29, 2014:

As you can see, renting points through David’s Vacation Club Rentals is an absolute bargain!
