Is renting points from Disney Vacation Club owners worthwhile?
I'm afraid we know nothing at all about Disney Vacation Club/booking/renting points or how it works.
Redkop and I really want to get a week on-site in 2012 so are looking at all the options.
I know how the AP discount thing works but can anyone explain Disney Vacation Club point renting to us, please? :)

Basically you pay a Disney Vacation Club member to make a reservation in your name. The going rate is $10/point though some charge more for BLT and you can be offered a discount if the member has points about to expire.
It is based a great deal on trust - the renter has NO control at all over the reservation and is dependent on the member making and keeping the reservation for them. Disney Vacation Club member services will not intervene and will not discuss the reservation with anyone apart from the member.
On the plus side - it's a good deal cheaper than making a cash ressie at a Disney Vacation Club property. For example a standard view studio at BLT for 1 week would be $3200 inc tax at rack rate from CRO. The same studio on points would be 104 points will at the $12 some people charge for BLT would still only be $1248.

Renting sounds like a good deal
Aren't there websites that act as go-betweens or are they only for buying and selling Disney Vacation Club memberships?

I have to add - I have never rented points in or out of my account so have no hands on experience - please proceed with caution if you choose to rent points by any method above.
