Get Your Beach House Before It’s Gone

If you haven’t booked this summer’s vacation rental yet you’d better hurry up! The best beach houses are reserved long before summer even gets here, sometimes even before spring arrives! There’s nothing more disappointing than having your heart set on a particular property only to find out someone else has reserved it while you were still trying to schedule your vacation time. Usually all that’s required to hold a vacation rental is the deposit fee.

Get Your Beach House Before Its GoneIt comes as no great surprise that the most popular beach houses that get scooped up the fastest will be the oceanfront rentals and beach houses with swimming pools and other exceptional amenity packages. Also vacation rentals that are close to many recreational activities and amusement parks where guests can walk to where they want to go rather than drive.

Planning early and looking at rentals online provides you with the opportunity to get the vacation rental of your choice at what is often the best deal. Check the Specials page and see great deals we have and when then schedule your vacation during that period if you want to save the most money. Planning ahead also helps to build anticipation and that boosts happiness for many people. In addition, the sooner you plan, the less stress there will be at the last minute. You’ll have far more time to get everything done that you need to.

Get Your Beach House Before Its GoneIf you tried but you missed out on getting your dream rental then consider renting it for a different time or shorter period. Perhaps a weekend away would do you more good than you realize! You can also request to be on a cancellation list (albeit on stand by) in case someone with a reservation has to cancel.

Once your reservations are made you can get on with the fun of building your itinerary. Check the local event calendars to see what’s taking place in the surrounding areas for the period of time you’ll be here. Don’t wait until you arrive and hope you hear about things because it just doesn’t work that way usually. Do your homework before you arrive and you’ll ensure one of the best vacations ever!
 

Choosing a Local Vacation Rental Company

When it comes to making your vacation plans you may be tempted to get a “package deal” that includes your airline, rental car and accommodations but you won’t be saving nearly as much money as you’re led to believe. There are plenty of reasons why you’re far better off working with a local vacation rental company than something nationwide or based in another state or country, and we’ll tell you some of them right here.

Choosing a Local Vacation Rental Company1. One of the biggest reasons is that a local vacation rental company is right here, on-site, should you have any problems. You won’t need to be calling any 1-800 numbers to get things remedied should issues arise.

2. Everyone that works at a vacation rental company like Beachcomber Vacations live in the area so they can answer just about any question you may have about the area and make recommendations, too! That is priceless!

3. A local company can provide you with discount tickets on area events and local golf package deals. You’re not going to get that from a national chain.

4. If you have a question prior to making your reservations, just call and ask us. We’re here and if you need more details about a certain rental or would like an additional photo perhaps, all you need to do is ask!

5. You’re more likely to find special deals on local vacation rentals, depending upon when you’re coming, as well as pet-friendly properties.

Choosing a Local Vacation Rental Company6. When you book a vacation rental from a local company you’ll get exactly what was advertised. That’s not always the case when a third party like Traveltown, Pricebox or RentalsRUs are advertising a property. Many people arrive only to find the pool their were looking forward to using is closed for maintenance or repairs.

7. The Internet has made it just as convenient for local rental companies to show their inventories online as it is for the national companies so take advantage of that. In most cases the photos, descriptions and rates of local vacation rental companies will be more up-to-date and current.

8. If you’re looking for something special to do just ask us! We almost always have our finger on the pulse of what’s going on in the Grand Strand area at any given time throughout the year.

It’s good to know you can still get down home service and Southern hospitality from businesses. When you call Beachcomber Vacations you’ll find both. Give us a call at 1-800-334-3798 if we can help you with your vacation plans and reservations.
