How to Save Money on Your Rental

  • Search for the official tourism bureau in the area you wish to travel. Many tourism bureaus will offer you travel guides with special offers for rental homes, dining and activities. These guides can provide an excellent start to your rental home search.
  • Flexible about when you can vacation? Off-peak times offer up considerable savings.
  • Several rental companies and owners offer price reductions for active and veteran men and women of the Armed forces, or repeat visitors to the same vacation home. Make sure to confirm with property manager to see if your vacationing gang qualifies for a discounted rate.
  • Some rental properties are practically catered to specific clients, whether it's oceanside rentals with weekly fishing pier passes, city-center homes with close access to shopping or waterfront homes that feature their own jetski launching areas. Make sure that you prioritize your proximity to the activities and interesting attractions you are most looking forward to.
  • Consider getting trip insurance with your leasing contract. Trip insurance, which generally costs between 1% - 5% of the basic stay rate, offers travellers reimbursement of their travel costs for any missed as a result of personal medical emergencies or hurricanes, and additionally ensuing extra hurricane evacuation costs or expenses, like an unplanned hotel stay or additional fuel. Trip insurance might just be a bank account-saver if the unforseen happens (heaven forbid!).

The Rental Process

Many people are shocked to discover just how many rental homes are offered in Carolina Beach. Vacation home accommodations have gained in popularity with the rise of global research sites like Homeaway and VRBO.

Rental homes are often owner operated or managed by property management companies. Vacation home management companies leverage scale, equipment and expertise to provide easy operational administration on behalf of the owner..

Seasoned Carolina Beach vacationers have figured out a few tips and tricks throughout the years when it comes to renting vacation homes, however many beginners will be happy to learn that many of these "tips" are in plain sight, if you understand how to search.

Searching for and booking the right vacation property:

Do you think ""A Captains Cottage" luxury oceanfront 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom" is the best rental property for your next vacation? Look over this checklist to make sure it fits all of your preferences.

The Sooner, The Better

Carolina Beach rental homes start booking very early. To get the best selection, start your planning and search Six-Twelve months in advance of your trip. Holiday reunions can be a popular time for groups to plot their Summer holiday escapes..

Choose a Village and Time

Sometimes, the toughest part of preparing for your trip is choosing where to go, and when. Once the big decisions are hammered out, everything else will be more straightforward.

Bedrooms and Bed Sizes Matter

Confirm who is going, and just how many/what particular bedroom configuration you will need. Consider that many properties list maximum guest capacity, which typically includes sofa beds in the living room. It is important to figure out what is suitable for your party. Specific descriptions of bedrooms and beds are typically available on the internet. If not, email or call the property owner before you book.

Exactly What Are You Willing to Pay?

Will your favorite rental home suit your budget during that prime Summer week? If a few groups or families are sharing the cost, make sure each group understands their responsibility and has agreed to a maximum they are willing to pay. A single individual in your group will have to be in charge of gathering contributions and accepting responsibility for the complete rental payment at time of booking.

Its All About Amenities

What amenities is the group searching for? Do you simply want a property with a swimming pool, jacuzzi or beach volleyball court? Does the property need to be oceanfront, in the downtown area, or near restaurants? Are extras like beach chairs, barbecue grills, umbrellas, carts or coolers at your disposal and included in your rental fee? Make a list of priority amenities to help narrow your search.

Accessibility and Special Considerations

Adequate accessibility can make or ruin a vacation for the less-mobile. Make sure you remember and inquire about wheel chair access, pool lifts and specialized equipment needs..

Fido Approved

Are you or other people in the gang travelling with a family pet? Animal guidelines are different at each rental property. Study descriptions thoroughly. Type of animal, size and breeds might be limited. Study your contract carefully! Extra fees may apply when pets are included. If in doubt, ask the property owner and get it in writing.

The best places to Search

When the location, dates and people are decided, search multiple sources for the very best rental home selection. In addition to Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we recommend searching Google for "Carolina Beach local rentals" for local rental management companies. Apart from offering exceptional rental properties, local companies provide you with superb service..

Negotiate

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

Some rental owners will negotiate rates, and some will not. If they are unwilling to budge on a highly-desirable stay, try getting an additional night. Off-peak weeks will probably be negotiable more often than peak-season..

Cancelling your Rental

  • If you have any ambiguity about parking, rules of the house, property access, swimming pool functions, etc... we advise you ask the rental manager promptly. A quick phone call avoids many hassles.
  • Remember to respect your nearby neighbors. Often, adjacent households are lived in by permanent residents. Remember the golden rule and treat others the same way you'd like to be treated by vacationers next to your primary residence.
