- Summertime is the priciest along the coast of =$property_arr['state_abbr']?> . To get the best rental for your budget, we recommend booking in the Spring or Fall. You'll benefit from lower rates, better selection, warm weather and the absence of large crowds at popular attractions and restaurants. Many vacationers use this method to find larger homes within budget, or to reserve an beach front rental that would otherwise be unavailable or unaffordable during the Summer. Speaking of the off-season, don't overlook the holidays for a =$cfg->settings->area_title?> vacation! Who wouldn't love a holiday at the beach? Thanksgiving and Christmas are great times to gather with family and friends at your favorite beach.
- Book your rental as soon as possible. Rental schedules often become available 12 months in advance (or in September just after the Summer season ends). Many families book their Summer rentals during Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years Eve gatherings. Reserve before these holidays for best selection.
- Some property managers offer discounts for active duty military and veterans. Remember to ask your property manager if special offers are available for your group.
- Property managers typically offer renters an option to purchase trip insurance . Trip insurance, which commonly will cost you 1% - 5% of the reservation price, offers visitors reimbursement of costs for missed time as a result of medical-related emergencies or weather disasters, as well as ensuing additional evacuation costs, such as an unanticipated hotel or extra gasoline. Trip insurance can be a a bank account-saver if the unforeseen occurs. Ask your property manager for specifics.

- Start by having your group agree to vacation dates and a max budget.

- Specific descriptions of bedrooms and bed types are almost always available online. If you don't see them listed, contact the host before you reserve the rental. Note that most properties list maximum guest capacity, which often includes pull out couches in living rooms.

- Expanding on our last point... Ask a local resident! Neighbors can usually help you find exactly what you're looking for. Who better to ask where to see a beautiful sunrise or sunset, have a great night out, or the best spots for crabbing?
- Lock your rental home while you are away. Protect the owner's property and your things!
