DVC rental Should I use two?


#1

Our trip is January 20-25 2018. I hadn't decided on DVC rental at 11 months out. I contacted David's last week and they found availability but did not have the points (AKL). Should I leave my name on their list and also contact DVC rental store or just wait until 7 month mark before panicking?


#2

It wouldn't hurt to contact another broker, since the issue appears to be lack of owners on David's list with points as opposed to lack of availability of rooms.


#3

Is waiting until 7 months a huge risk? I've never rented DVC before.


#4

I don't think it would hurt to check out another broker, but I wouldn't get too worried. My understanding is that AKL is huge and there are a lot of rooms.

That is not entirely true - despite its size, the DVC rooms at AKL can go quickly. David's has a handy guide for how far in advance you should rent https://www.dvcrequest.com/how-soon-should-i-reserve.asp which indicates that most types of AKL rooms should be booked more than 7 months in advance.
