  • Are you willing to switch your dates? Shoulder seasons offer terrific opportunities.
  • Active Duty and veterans of the U.S. Armed forces may be able to get special discounts. Make sure to check with property manager to see if your vacationing group qualifies for a markdown.

  • Property management companies and individual property owners generally offer their clients the opportunity to obtain trip insurance protection. Trip insurance, which generally add anywhere between 1% - 5% of the base stay cost, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation expenses for any missed a result of medical-related emergencies or hurricanes, as well as ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs or expenses, like an unexpected motel stay or additional gas. Trip insurance is definitely a bank account-saver if the unforseen occurs (heaven forbid!).

Search Early and Frequently

Southport rental properties start booking early. For the greatest selection, start your planning and search Six-Twelve months before your trip. Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years are excellent times to plan and book your vacation rental home..

Settle on your Town and Travel Week

Start by figuring out which specific area of Southport you want to browse, and the choose travel dates.

Select a Size

Take a head count. How many beds and bedrooms will you need? Remember that many rentals list maximum guest capacity, which oftentimes includes sofa beds in the living area. You'll need to determine what is acceptable for your family. Specific descriptions of bedrooms and beds are typically available online. Otherwise, speak to the property owner before you book.

What Exactly Are You Prepared to Pay?

Will the preferred rental fit your budget during that choice Summer week? Make sure you get cost-sharing commitments from friends and family prior to booking a costly rental home. Most rental documents require a single individual to be liable for the whole reservation.

Let's Discuss Amenities

What property features is the group looking for? Do you simply desire a property with a swimming pool, jacuzzi or volleyball court? Are you more interested in a natural landscape or nightlife? Are items like beach chairs, barbecue grills, beach umbrellas, carts or coolers available and included with your rental property charge? Make a list of priority amenities to help narrow your search.

Special Issues

Do individual members of your crew have special needs? If wheel chair accessibility, elevators, pool lifts or other specialized devices are needed, include that into your search. Nearly all rental home listings include a list of amenities.

Paws-Friendly, Please

Are you or other individuals in the group visiting with a domestic pet? Animal friends are welcome at many rentals, but policies differ. Be sure you read descriptions and contracts carefully. Extra charges may apply when animals are included. If in doubt, ask the property manager and get it in writing.

Best places to Search

. Together with Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we recommend searching Google for "Southport local rentals" for local rental management companies. Local rental home management companies take pride in a top-quality rental experience.

Negotiate the Price

Re-read the description to ensure the vacation home has everything you need. If lacking, the rental home management company may know of very similar homes that fit your style and budget..

While not true for all rental homes, many property owners and property managers will negotiate rates. If they are unwilling to budge on a peak-season stay, try asking for an additional night. Off-peak weeks should be negotiable more often than peak-season..

Study the Total Contract

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

  • Utilities
  • Internet
  • Telephone service
  • Pool Heating
  • Cable and pay-per-view TV

If you want to Cancel

Ensure that you be aware of the cancellation policy prior to reserving. You will likely be offered trip insurance. Trip insurance, which generally costs ranges from 1% - 5% of your standard vacation rental rate, provides vacationers with reimbursement of their vacation costs (and subsequent vacation property costs) for any days missed resulting from personal health care emergencies or weather, as well as hurricane evacuation expenses, such as a unanticipated hotel stay or additional gas.

During your Stay

  • Take pictures at your arrival. Take notes of any property damage right after you arrive. Get in touch with the property manager immediately to report your observations. This will prevent disputes during check out.
  • Ask questions. When there is any ambiguity about vehicle parking, policies of the property, property access, swimming pool operation, etc... we suggest you ask the rental home manager immediately. A quick phone call eliminates many headaches.

  • Ask a local. Natives may point you in the right direction.
  • Make sure that you protect the owner (and your things!) by keeping the property secured while you are away, just like you would at home.

Checking Out

  • Please make sure to walk through the rental one last time and look for damages. We advise walking through with the rental manager whenever you can (this isn't always the case).. If the property owner is not available, you'll want to take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • How do you feel about your choice? Just about all rental management companies and vacation rental websites permit travellers to provide feedback. If your property and/or property manager was top-notch, they will appreciate your recommendations. If something went wrong, we suggest being pleasant but genuine with regards to your experience.
