Is renting points an option when short on points?

I was wondering what the best options would be if I was short on points but didn't want to borrow.

Can I rent points and combine my own points? I see through brokers that there are owners that rent by the point but not sure if they have a minimum.

If that is an option, how is the entire thing handled when making the reservation? How would I tie in the rented points with my points? Also, what if I rent the points and discover that there's no availability at the resort I choose, and end up with something else and not need quite as many of the rented points?

Lots of questions as to how this works...thanks.

I don't have advice about renting, but you can buy one-time use points, which may be simpler depending on your specific needs https://disneyvacationclub.disney.go...points/how-to/

That's great to know. Thank you.

I may have an instance where I need more than the 24 one time use points, so would also like to know about renting points to add to my existing points. So if anyone has info about that, please chime in..thanks!

The Timeshare Store also rents points. I have never rented points but you would transfer them to your account. You are allowed to transfer points one time per year. Then when you make your reservation all the points are available together. I think the transfer points still fall under the 11/7 month rule when making a reservation. For example if you own at GF and rent points from someone who owns at BLT you could only make a reservation at GF with the BLT points at the 7 month mark. There are more people on here with more knowledge of this and hopefully they can add more.

I'd use the DVC one time rental points, but if you need more that 24 there is: https://www.dvcrequest.com/ Davids Vacation Club Rentals.
