How to Save Money on Your Rental

  • Search for the tourism bureau in the area you wish to travel. Many official tourism bureaus will offer you printed tourism guide books with special offers for rental homes, restaurants and tours. These guides provide an excellent start to your rental home search.
  • Are you willing to modify your travel dates? Shoulder seasons provide terrific promotions.
  • Are you a armed forces veteran? A number of management companies offer discounts to veterans and active-duty forces. Be sure to check with property manager to see if your travelling group is eligible for a markdown.
  • Some homes are particularly designed for specific groups of vacationers. Event homes are best for weddings, wedding receptions and corporate retreats. Some homes cater to beach bums. Other homes are positioned close to nightlife. Make sure that you prioritize your proximity to the outdoor activities and sights you are most excited about.
  • Property management companies and individual home owners commonly offer their guests an opportunity to purchase trip insurance. Trip insurance, which usually will cost you between 1% - 5% of the basic term price, provides travellers reimbursement of their vacation expenses for any missed due to health emergencies or weather, as well as ensuing extra hurricane evacuation costs or charges, such as an unplanned hotel stay or extra fuel. Trip insurance is definitely a bank account-saver if the unforseen occurs (heaven forbid!).

General Rental Home Information

You may be pleasantly surprised to discover just how many vacation homes are available at your destination. With such a wide selection, clients are certain to find a property which matches their wishes and spending plan.

The vast majority of rentals in Southport are privately owned and many are represented by established local property management companies. For owners not directly engaged in the management of their rental home, management companies are critical in helping travellers with reserving, check-in, cleaning, as well as maintenance problems that may arise.

Seasoned Southport vacationers have identified several tips and tricks throughout the years when it comes to renting vacation homes, however most newcomers will be delighted to discover that several "techniques" are in plain sight, if you recognize where to search.

Finding and reserving the right rental:

Before you book "SANDY TAILS - Oak Island, NC", read through our short collection of points to consider.

Search Early and Frequently

Southport rental homes start booking very early. Booking your rental 6-12 months before your travel dates is usually recommended, when possible. Holiday gatherings are a great time for families to plan their Summer vacations..

Settle on your Town and Travel Week

Consensus can be tricky among family members, but as soon as this complicated part is finished everything will begin to fall in place.

Just How Many Beds?

Determine who is attending the vacation, and just how many/what particular bedroom setup you'll need. Bear in mind that most rental homes list maximum guest capacity, which usually includes sofa beds in the living room space. You'll need to figure out what is acceptable for your family. Generally rental listings will summarize each of the unit's specific bedrooms and mattress sizes.

Determine Your Budget

Most vacation rentals are presented with a cost range. Confirm the price for your selected stay. It could be at the high end of the range. Make sure to get cost-sharing commitments from loved ones well before booking a pricey rental property. Typically, a single member of the group will be liable for making the whole reservation and collecting each family member's share.

Its All About Amenities

What home features is the family searching for? Do you only desire a home with a swimming pool, spa tub or beach volleyball court? Are you more enthusiastic about a natural landscape or nightlife? Are mattress sheets included with the rental agreement, or do you need to bring your own? Make a list of priority features to facilitate narrow your search.

Accessibility and Special Concerns

Do individual members of your crew have special needs? Ensure that you remember and inquire about wheel chair entry, pool lifts and special equipment requirements..

Think About Furry Family Members?

Remember to include your best friend! Dog policies are different at each property. Study descriptions thoroughly. A number of limitations could dismiss a potential rental home. Examine your agreement thoroughly! Extra fees or deposits may be applied to your contract. Ask questions *before* you book!

Searching the Internet

. In combination with Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we advise searching Google for "Southport local rental homes" for local rental management companies. Local vacation rental management companies take pride in a superior vacation experience.

Negotiate

When you have found your dream rental, check to confirm your travel dates are available.

Although not true for all rental properties, many rental owners and property managers will negotiate rates. If they are hesitant to budge on a peak-season trip, try asking for an additional night. This is most effective during the off-peak season when many rentals sit empty.

Read Through The Agreement

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

  • Electric bills
  • Internet
  • Telephone service
  • Hot Tub Heating
  • Cable and pay-per-view TV
  • Cleaning services and housekeeping
  • Trash Pickup (and which day?)
  • Maintenance (get a phone number)
  • Check in & Check Out Key Exchange
  • Parking Space

In addition to the regular fee, guests will have to pay local taxes when booking "SANDY TAILS - Oak Island, NC", along with various other fees which may be required based upon their situation, including a dog charge, earlier check-in or late check-out fee, or a pool heat fee for private swimming pool usage during the autumn or spring months.

Trip Insurance

Be sure to are familiar with the cancellation policy before reserving. You will probably be offered trip insurance. Trip insurance defends the renter against emergencies and weather events, It gives you relief should tragedy strike.

Book It

After you think you've found "the one", begin the reservation process. You will probably be asked to submit a security deposit at time of reservation.

Where to Get Help

Put the rental manager's contact information into your smartphone and wallet for quick access to answers throughout your stay.

Congrats! All that is left is making the most of your visit!

During your Stay

  • Take pictures at your arrival. Take notes of any wear and tear soon after you arrive. We also suggest promptly calling the rental manager with a report of any damages, along with your request for any necessary repairs. This may prevent disagreements during check out.
  • Ask questions. When there's any ambiguity about vehicle parking, policies of the property, condo access, swimming pool operations, etc... we suggest you ask the rental home manager immediately. A phone call can save hours of hassle.
  • Remember to be a good next-door neighbor. Locals are likely to be as friendly to you as you are respectful of them. Remember the golden rule and treat others the same way you'd like to be treated by vacationers next to your residence.
  • Ask a local. Locals are a great source of recommendations.
  • Enjoy your stay! Ensure you protect the rental owner (and your things!) by keeping the home secured when you are away, exactly like you would at home.

Check Out Time

  • Tidy up a lttle bit. Even though you're spending money on a house cleaning fee, The vacation home needs to be in sound condition. Sinks filled with dishes, excessive beach sand on the flooring and sticky messes should be remedied prior to leaving.
  • Please make sure to walk through the rental one last time and check for property damage. We suggest walking through with the property manager wherever possible (often this isn't possible).. If the property manager is not available, make sure that you take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • How was your getaway? Just about all rental home management companies and rental search sites permit customers to offer feedback. If the vacation rental and/or property manager was terrific, they will likely appreciate your compliments. If something went wrong, we suggest being understanding but straightforward with regards to your stay. Top property owners and managers will work very hard to fix the situation.

Use Your Experience

Does everyone want to return next year? Hopefully everything turned out to be wonderful and you are excited to reserve the same rental for next year. If not, you've acquired valuable rental search experience that will help with your next search.
