Money Saving Rental Tips

  • Search for the official tourism bureau where you want to travel. Most official tourism bureaus will offer you printed guides with deals for rental properties, dining and tours. These guides can provide a great start to your rental search.
  • Are you willing to modify your trip week? The off-peak seasons frequently offer terrific rates on rentals.
  • Active Duty and veterans of the US Military may be qualified for cost savings. Make sure to ask property manager to see if your vacationing crew qualifies for a price reduction.
  • Some properties are essentially catered to specific vacationers, whether it is oceanside rentals with weekly fishing pier passes, city-center homes with nearby access to shopping or waterfront homes that feature private jetski launching areas. You'll get the most value from a home that most thoroughly satisfies your ideal trip setting, regardless if it costs a bit more.
  • Property management companies and individual home owners generally offer clients an opportunity to buy trip insurance coverage. Trip insurance, which generally costs somewhere between 1% - 5% of the basic vacation rental price, offers visitors reimbursement of their travel costs for any nights missed as a result of personal health emergencies or hurricanes, and additionally ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs or expenses, such as an unanticipated hotel room stay or extra gas.

General Vacation Rental Tips & Tricks

You may be surprised to learn how many properties are available at your destination. Rental accommodations have gained in popularity with the rise of essential research sites like Homeaway and VRBO.

The vast majority of vacation homes in Southport are privately operated and many are represented by well-known local rental management agencies. Property management companies are well-liked by property owners because they coordinate the marketing and operations..

Here are some ideas and tactics to help you navigate the vacation home search and booking process.

Searching for and booking the perfect rental property:

Before you book "Balmy Days: 4 Bed/2.5 Bath: Modest Oceanfront Home with a Wide Beachfront Deck", go through our short collection of considerations.

The Earlier, The Better

Southport vacation homes start booking very early. To assure the greatest choice of properties, we suggest searching and reserving your Southport rental Six-Twelve months in advance, whenever you can. Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years are excellent times to find and book your vacation rental..

Find your Area and Identify Dates

Sometimes, the most challenging portion of planning your trip is figuring out where to go, and when. After the big decisions are tackled, the rest will be more straightforward.

Decide on a Size

Keep a list of attendees. How many beds and bedrooms will you need? Be aware that a lot of rental homes list maximum guest capacity, which usually includes sofa beds in the living area. It is important to determine what is most appropriate for the party. Specific descriptions of bedrooms and beds are typically available online. Otherwise, speak to the property owner before you reserve the home.

Stick to a Budget

Most rental properties are marketed with a price range. Determine the rate for your desired stay. It might be at the top end of the range. Make certain to get cost-sharing commitments from friends and family before booking a pricey vacation property. One individual in your group will have to be given the task of gathering payments and accepting responsibility for the whole rental price at time of booking.

Its All About Amenities

What property features is your group interested in? Is a screened-in deck a requirement? Are you more enthusiastic about wildlife or night life? Are mattress sheets offered with the rental agreement, or do you need to take your own? Build a list of priority amenities to facilitate narrow your search.

Special Considerations

Occasionally the senior generation has problems with stairs. If wheel chair entry, elevators, pool lifts or other specialized equipment is needed, include that into your search. The majority of vacation home listings include a list of amenities.

Your Puppy Needs a Holiday, Too

Make sure to include your furry family members. Animal guidelines are different at each rental. Read descriptions thoroughly. Examine your contract very carefully! Extra fees or deposits may be applied to your contract. If in doubt, ask the property owner and get it in writing.

Start the Search

After the place, dates and attendees are decided, search multiple resources for the best rental selection. In addition to Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we suggest searching Google for "Southport local rental properties" for local rental management companies. Local rental management companies take pride in a first-class rental experience.

Negotiate the Price

Re-read the description to confirm the vacation rental has everything that you need. If lacking, the vacation rental management company might know of comparable homes that better suit your desires and budget..

Although not true for all rental properties, many owners and property managers will make a deal on rates. If the rate isn't negotiable, the number of nights might be. Off-peak weeks are likely to be negotiable more often than peak-season..

Read the Total Contract

Discover which of the following is included in your quoted rate:

  • Power bills
  • Internet Connectivity
  • Long Distance Phone Service
  • Pool and hot tub heating
  • Pay Per View Movies
  • Cleaning Service
  • Trash collection
  • Maintenance (get a phone number)
  • Key exchange
  • Parking requirements

Get a total that incorporates taxes, animal and other additional fees.

If you'd like to Cancel

Cancellation policies are different with each vacation rental. You will likely be offered trip insurance. Trip insurance safeguards the renter against emergencies and weather events, It gives peace of mind should catastrophe strike.

Book It

When everything seems right, it's finally time to sign on the dotted line. You'll likely have to submit a security deposit at time of booking.

Get Contact Info

Put the property manager's contact information into your smartphone and wallet for convenient access to answers during your visit.

Good job on booking your vacation home! You're on your way to a phenomenal vacation!

  • Should there be any ambiguity about vehicle parking, rules of the house, condo access, pool operation, etc... we suggest you ask the property manager immediately. A phone call can save hours of difficulty.
  • Remember to respect your nearby neighbors. More often than not, neighboring homes are filled by permanent locals. Remember the golden rule and treat others the same way you'd like to be treated by vacationers next to your primary residence.

  • As soon as everything is out, begin a walk-through of the rental home to make sure no damage occurred during your remain. We advise walking through with the property manager whenever feasible (this may not be possible).. If the property owner is not available, make sure you take photos of the property to record its condition.
