has anyone used DVC rental store? and how does this compare to Daves or renting from members themselves? I do know that the DVC rental store offers Cancel for any reason insurance,,,
I haven’t used DVC rental store. I don’t think they charge a deposit for checking availability either, as well as having their own insurance policy.
David’s pays owners more than rental store, so more owners are likely to register with them to rent points out and therefore they have points available. But for a renter, what matters is who has the “right” owner, ie: ones with the points at the required home resort. And rental store won’t work with international owners, not sure about renters.
Renting from a broker provides some extra protection for renters, they take on all the checks etc. If you rent privately you must check them out, check they are legit, and make sure you have a contract (that’s actually required in the deeds).
I would head to the broker sites and make sure you read all the info. Renting points is different from booking direct with Disney. No cancellations, no date changes. No daily housekeeping.
