Default Broker does the right thing w/r/t cancellations

I generally rent thru DVC Rental Store and did so for a Memorial Day weekend Aulani reservation. Well w/ today's continuance of HI's lockdown - the reservation is cancelled. I already said I would rebook the reservation thru the end of my use year when asked by the broker. But today they reached and said they will be paying the entire escrow amount due to on the date of the rental per the contract and offering $100 to rebook the reservation plus $1/point bonus.

Now in theory I could have stiffed the broker but because they didn't monkey around with me and have been good to me, I took them up on it since I don't want to see them go out of business.

Anyway wanted to share given the shenigans going on w/ David's.

Sounds like they’re (Rental Store) treating the owners well.

But Rental Store are using exactly the same voucher system as David’s are for renters.

Same as airlines, same as Disney for tickets, etc. Not sure there's a great answer here. I'm at least effectively making the voucher viable by doing my side at least.

I'd like to think that the airlines and Disney have a lesser chance of going bankrupt by the end of the year.

Airlines have a pretty good chance of it actually depending on federal bailouts.

If enough owners like me help the rental brokers out, then they'll be ok.
