I have been thinking about purchasing a small points contract resale. Probably Saratoga just due to cost. I’m dipping my toe in the waters so to speak. And I have questions! I’m a planner but not a long range planner. I tend to book vacations a few months out at most.
Is it difficult to find vacancy if you don’t jump on it right at the 11 month mark (for home resort) and 7 month mark for others?
If you have flexible dates, is it still possible to find something in a shorter window?
Even at the 11 month window, is it difficult to get what you want when you want it?
Has anyone used their points at Hilton Head or Vero Beach? Are those easier or more difficult to book than the DW resorts?
Am I dreaming if I think I can use my points to book at the Grand Californian?
I’m also wondering if I should wait a couple of months to see if prices soften a bit. There is no urgency. Especially if it will be more difficult to book in the next year or so due to the COVID shut down and people banking points.
