I've used disboards for renting points and they seemed friendly. The only incident of rudeness I experienced was an owner not wanting to rent to me because I had contacted another owner.

What happened was I contacted someone to rent their points and they rented to someone else, so I had to move along and find another owner. Since I did not contact this particular owner first, she decided not to rent me points. I thought it was ridiculous, but whatever, I found someone willing to rent for $2/point cheaper.

You just need to know what you want before you go posting. You need to research how many points you need to rent for the dates you want to go and have a small understanding of DVC. You also need to decide what payment terms you are comfortable with. Ask your "newbie" questions here before you post on the other forum and you'll look like a pro.

We're renting DVC for the first time next spring. I'm planning on using David's Disney Vacation Club Point Rentals Anyone have info on this company that they wish to share? The little bit of contact that I've had with David has been very helpful and already saved me some $. He rents for a flat $13 a point.

I don't know if this is the right place to post this; if not please move it.

We are planning to visit the world in 9/2011 for 12 nights and would like to look into renting a 1 bedroom Savannah view villa in AK Kidani village or a 1 bedroom in Bay Lake Tower from a DVC member. Before I look on the DIS site (which scares me because of the comments I've read) I want to get my ducks in a row. Any advice would be welcomed, like how do I find out how many points I will need to ask for and are the rental points still going for $10-$15 even though Disney is offering 40% off. ect.

here is akv point chart
Animal Kingdom Lodge Villas DVC Point Chart, Disney Vacation Club

here is BLT point chart
Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort - DVC Points

yes the points still rent from $10 to $15 per point. for BLT might go with David's - since member seem to want more for them and BCV.

you also need to know which view at BLT you want - all have 1-bedrooms - standard, lake view (79%) or magic kingdom

you can see parts of the MK from some rooms in standard and lake view.

if you have a problem with heights - then standard view is no further than the 5th floor.

you can get them added - but now MS wants the money when you add on the dinning plan (before they only wanted it when you checked in)

so you need to trust the member with your credit card - or ask for a conference call with MS. even then MS may not talk to you. this is dinning plan only.

for the tickets you buy them - you can generally find them with a discount (ticketmaster or other places) - once you arrive you can get concierge to add them to your room key

I agree with this, but at $13/pp he's asking a higher price than most. However, you're paying for a service here. I just think you can do better. At his price, you're almost paying WDW price....

Yes I would like to know this also. The Timeshare Store says they handle rentals as property managers making the rental process easier I would think...

Anyone. Anyone?

An owner can book a reservation as early as 11 months (to the day) of check in. So in your case, an owner at the resort you want could book your reservation as early as December 9, 2012. Hope that helps.
