Booking at a resort other than your home one.

Do you book the home one at 11 months then modify it at 7 to the other resort so that you have somewhere booked? I'm hoping as I'm after a 2 bed the availability will be there but I've only booked...

I agree that the hold is worse on a pre-pay or a bank card but the hold still goes on a credit card. Depending on the card limit and usage that can still cause problems.
