Money Saving Rental Tips

  • Find the tourism bureau where you want to travel. Many tourism bureaus will send you printed guide books with special deals for rental properties, restaurants and activities. These guides may provide a good start to your vacation rental search.
  • Able to modify your trip dates? Off-peak rates are usually a fraction of high fees.
  • Active Duty and veterans of the US Armed forces may be able to get special discounts. Be sure to check with vacation rental company to see if your vacationing crew is eligible for a reduced price.
  • Some vacation rentals are basically designed to serve specific visitors, whether it's soundside units with weekly fishing pier passes, city-center condos with close access to restaurants or waterfront homes that feature their own kiteboarding launching areas. Be sure to prioritize your proximity to the activities and locations you are most interested in.
  • Property management companies and individual home owners often offer clients an opportunity to obtain trip insurance protection. Trip insurance, which usually will cost you anywhere between 1% - 5% of the base stay price, offers buyers reimbursement of their rental costs for any days missed as a consequence of health emergencies or hurricanes, and additionally ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs or charges, such as an unanticipated hotel stay or extra gas. Trip insurance can be a bank account-saver if the unforseen occurs .

Accessibility and Special Things to consider

Grandma and Grandpa will appreciate you for not reserving a stairs-access-only condominium on the Third floor. If wheel chair access, elevators, pool lifts or other special devices are required, include that into your search. The majority of rental listings include a list of amenities.

Think About 4-Legged Family Members?

During your Stay

  • Record the condition of the rental property right away. We also advise promptly calling the rental manager with a report of any problems, along with your request for any fixes. This may prevent disputes during checkout.
  • You could need guidance for a fireplace, Television or spa. Get in touch with your property manager. They are there to help. A brief phone call eliminates many problems.
  • Please be respectful of the community. . Respecting late-night quiet hours and parking restrictions can make a vacation significantly more pleasurable.
  • Ask a local. Locals are a fantastic source of recommendations. Who better to ask where to order the best chicken wings, have a great night out, or the best spots for shopping?
  • Enjoy your stay! Make certain to protect the rental owner (and your things!) by keeping the rental secured while you are away, exactly like you would in your own home.

At the end of your stay

  • Check to make sure you've packed all of your belongings. Sweep every room in the house for forgotten items. Inspect bath rooms, the garage, kitchen cupboards, backyards, the pool area, and anywhere else your personal property might "hide".
  • As soon as your things are all out, begin a walk-through of the rental home to make sure that no damage occurred during your stay. We advise walking through with the property manager whenever you can (often this isn't possible).. If the property manager is not available, remember to take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • How do you feel about your choice? Just about all property management companies and rental websites make it easy for travellers to give feedback. If your rental home and/or property manager was outstanding, they will likely appreciate your compliments. If anything went wrong and they didn't fix it in a practical manner, or if the rental home wasn't as described, you should make it a point as part of your critique.
