How to Save Money on Your Rental
- Many property owners and vacation homes supply Charleston area area promotional travel magazines which include money-saving deals, either offered independently by vendors, or by way of a partnership between the property management company and the local vendor itself. Keep an eye out for these magazines and discount books, since this allows travelers to discover the very same activities at a substantial discounted.
- Able to change your trip dates? Shoulder seasons provide amazing promotions.
- Are you a military veteran? Some rental companies provide discounted prices to veterans and active-duty forces. Be sure to confirm with vacation rental company to see if your vacationing group qualifies for a discounted rate.
- Some properties are practically designed to serve specific guests, whether it is beachfront homes with pier passes, city-center condos with nearby access to night life or waterfront homes that feature private boat launching areas. Make sure that you prioritize your proximity to the outdoor activities and interesting attractions you are most interested in.
- Give thought to investing in trip insurance with your rental contract. Trip insurance, which usually will cost you anywhere between 1% - 5% of the basic vacation rental rate, offers guests reimbursement of their vacation expenses for any missed a result of health-related emergencies or weather, as well as ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs or charges, like an unplanned hotel room stay or extra gasoline. Trip insurance might just be a bank account-saver if the unforseen happens (heaven forbid!).

The Sooner, The Better
Like many renowned hot spots, In Charleston area the best rental properties are booked early. For the greatest selection, begin your planning and search Six-Twelve months before your trip. A lot of families decide to start their search during Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year holiday gatherings.
Find your Area and Establish Dates
Agreement can often be tricky among relatives, but once this difficult part is finished everything will quickly slide in place.
Just How Much Vacation rental Do You Need?
How many relatives are planning to share your vacation? Be aware that many rentals advertise maximum guest capacity, which often includes sofa beds in the home's living room. It is important to determine what is most appropriate for your company. Generally rental listings will outline each one of the unit's specific bedrooms and beds.
What Exactly Are You Prepared to Shell out?
Will the preferred rental property fit your budget during that prime Summer week? If many groups or loved ones are sharing the cost, make sure that each person knows their obligations and has agreed to a maximum they are willing to contribute. Most rental documents call for a single person to be liable for the entire reservation.
Compose a list of "Wants" and "Needs"
What amenities is the family trying to find? Are you looking for a rental property with outside lounge? Are you more enthusiastic about a natural landscape or night life? Are items like beach chairs, barbecue grills, beach umbrellas, carts or coolers available and included in your rental fee? Create a list of priority amenities to help filter your search.

Besides Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we suggest searching Google for "Charleston area local rental homes" for local property management companies. Local companies frequently have an exclusive assortment of rentals daily and weekly.
Negotiate the Price
When you've found your dream rental, make sure your travel dates are available.
Some rental owners will negotiate rates, and some will not. If they are hesitant to budge on a highly-desirable trip, try asking for an extra night. Off-peak weeks will be negotiable more frequently than peak-season..

During your Stay
- Record the condition of the rental unit immediately upon arrival. Get in touch with the rental manager immediately to report your observations. If there is a dispute about legal liability later, having the recorded problems and communication attempts will be very helpful.
- Ask questions. When there is any ambiguity about vehicle parking, rules of the property, property access, swimming pool operations, etc... we recommend you ask the property manager immediately. A phone call can save several hours of problems.
- Don't forget to be a good next-door neighbor. Often times, nearby homes are occupied by permanent locals. Remember the golden rule and treat others the same way you'd like to be treated by vacationers next to your home.
- Ask a local. Local people are a great source of advice.
- Make sure you protect the rental owner (and your stuff!) by keeping the rental locked up when you are away, just like you would at home.
- Double-check each room of the rental to make certain you've packed all personal belongings.
- Please make sure to walk through the rental one last time and look for property damage. We recommend walking through with the property manager whenever feasible (this isn't always the case).. If the property owner is not available, make sure that you take photos of the property to record its condition.
- How would you feel about your choice? Many vacation rental websites ask for comments after your stay is complete. Property owners and property managers will appreciate your glowing ratings. If anything was unacceptable and they didn't fix it in a acceptable manner, or if the property wasn't as described, you will want to note that in your comments.
