My situation is this. I made a booking 13 months out using my CWA points. Something came up and I can’t be away that week. If I cancel that rez, can I still use those points to make another different rez in the ARP window or do those points lose their ARP privileges?

I think you can’t use them for ARP bookings a second time, but I couldn’t find anything pertaining to this in the Directory. Although I admit I didn’t have a lot of time to examine it thoroughly tonight. So as a shortcut, I thought I would ask the members here if they happen to know the answer from personal experience.

If its not 100% clear what I’m talking about, the situation is I’d like to cancel a one week ARP booking that I made for July of next year, and book the same resort a week later. This booking was made with the last of my CWA points.

Does anyone know for sure?

If you're going to cancel it regardless, you can check your benefits summary for your CWA ARP benefit, then do the cancellation, then check your benefits summary again and get the answer.

Yes you can use your ARP up to the point value you have. If you booked something, then cancel, those points are again freed up to do another ARP, provided there is still inventory left to ARP and you have not slipped into the SRP window.

I can confirm, because I change my plans a lot, that you don’t lose your ARP benefit on points if you cancel and then rebook with them.
