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.
1. 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.
6. 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.
