How to get the best deal on your rental
- Search for the official tourism bureau in the area you want to travel. Many tourism bureaus will send printed tourism guides with special packages for vacation rentals, restaurants and tours. These guides can provide an excellent start to your rental search.
- Are you willing to modify your trip week? The off-peak shoulder seasons will offer incredible rates on rental properties.
- Many rental companies and owners offer rate reductions for active duty and veteran members of the Armed forces, or repeat individuals to the same rental. Be sure to ask vacation rental company to see if your vacationing crew qualifies for a reduced price.
- Some properties are particularly suited for particular groups of travellers. Event homes are ideal for weddings, wedding receptions and corporate retreats. Some homes appeal to beach bums. Other rentals are situated close to nightlife. You should prioritize your proximity to the adventures and sights you are most excited about.
- Give thought to purchasing trip insurance with your lease contract. Trip insurance, which usually will cost you between 1% - 5% of the basic term price, offers travellers reimbursement of their trip costs for any missed as a result of personal health-related emergencies or storms, in addition to ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs or expenses, such as an unplanned hotel stay or extra gas.

We have put together a brief guide to assist you in getting most out of your rental experience.
Finding and reserving the right rental:
Before you book "Luxuriously Renovated Home - 1 Block From King St!", examine our brief checklist of factors to consider.
The Sooner, The Better
Charleston area rentals are reserved several months (and up to a year) in advance. To ensure the very best choice of vacation rentals, we recommend searching and reserving your Charleston area vacation home 6-Twelve months before your travel dates, whenever possible. Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years are excellent times to plan and book your vacation home..
Find your Spot and Identify Dates
Start by figuring out which specific area of Charleston area you prefer to explore, and the determine travel dates.
Just How Much Rental Do You Need?
How many family members are planning to share your getaway? Consider that most rentals advertise maximum guest capacity, which typically includes sofa beds in the living room. It is important to figure out what is acceptable for the group. Generally rental listings will describe each of the unit's specific bedrooms and beds.
Decide on Your Budget
Most vacation homes are marketed with a cost range. Determine the price for your selected week. It may be at the top end of the range. Make sure you get cost-sharing commitments from family and friends well before reserving a costly rental property. One individual in your family must be given the task of gathering contributions and agreeing to responsibility for the whole rental cost at time of booking.
Create a list of "Wishes" and "Needs"
What amenities is your group searching for? Is a screened deck a requirement? Do you want to be far from the crowds, or near a city setting? Are linens included with the rental, or will you need to take your own? Create a list of priority conveniences to help filter your search.
Do some people in your party have special needs? If wheel chair accessibility, elevators, pool lifts or other special equipment is necessary, include that into your search. Most vacation rental listings include a list of amenities.
Have You Considered Furry Family Members?
Are you or other individuals in the party travelling with a pup? Animal guidelines are different at each rental. Read descriptions carefully. Examine your contract carefully! Additional charges may apply when pets are included. If in doubt, ask the property manager and get it in writing.
Searching the Internet
A number of internet resources exist to match visitors with rental home owners.. In addition to Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we suggest searching Google for "Charleston area local rental homes" for local vacation home management companies. Local property management companies pride themselves on a superior vacation experience.
When you have found your dream rental, double check to make sure your travel dates are available.
While not true for all properties, many owners and property managers will negotiate rates. If they are unwilling to budge on a highly-desirable trip, try asking for an additional night. Your easiest chance of a lower rate will be changing to an off-season week.

Cancelling your Vacation Property
Cancellation policies are different for each property. Vacation home management companies and rental owners commonly offer their clients the choice to buy trip insurance. Trip insurance protects the renter against emergency situations and weather events, It provides peace of mind should catastrophe strike.
Complete the Booking

- Make certain to protect the owner (and your things!) by keeping the home locked up when you are away, just like you would at home.
When its Time to Leave
- Check to make sure you've packed all your belongings. Sweep every room in the home for left-behind possessions. Check bath rooms, the garage, kitchen cupboards, decks, the swimming pool area, and anywhere else your personal property might "hide".
- As soon as everything is out, begin a walk-through of the property to make certain no property damage occurred during your remain. We advise walking through with the rental manager whenever you can (often this isn't possible).. If the property manager is not available, make sure to take photos of the property to record its condition.

Our top Vacation rental home tips and tricks:
Sticking to your rental budget:
- Summer months are the priciest =$property_arr['city']?> . Booking your vacation rental in Fall or Spring is our favorite way to save money on your vacation. Rental rates are lower, and you'll find a better selection of acceptable properties.
- Book your vacation rental as soon as possible. Rental schedules usually open a year in advance (or in September just after Summer ends). Many groups book their Summer vacation rentals during Winter holiday gatherings. Book before these holidays for best selection.
- Some property managers offer rate reductions for active duty military and veterans. Make sure to check with your property manager if special offers are available for your group.
- Property management companies often offer customers an option to purchase trip insurance protection. Trip insurance, which generally will cost between 1% - 5% of the base booking price, offers visitors reimbursement of costs for days missed as a result of medical-related issues or weather disasters, as well as hurricane evacuation costs or charges, such as an unexpected hotel stay or additional fuel. Trip insurance is definitely a life-saver if the unforeseen happens. Ask your property manager for specifics.
Use filters to narrow your search:
- Choose a group leader, choose your trip dates, and choose a maximum budget.
- Note the number bedrooms and the bed configuration your group needs.
- Precise descriptions of bedrooms and bed types are regularly available online. Otherwise, reach out to the property owner before you reserve your rental. Note that most properties list the max. guest capacity, which often includes pull-out couches and bunk beds. You'll need to work out what bed configuration is optimal for your vacation.
- Does your group require particular amenities? Most rental search websites include amenity lists and search filters.
- Appropriate accessibility amenities can make or ruin a vacation for guests that require the use of a wheelchair. Make certain to remember and inquire about wheel chair entry, pool lifts and specialized equipment needs.
- Some rentals allow pets, and some do not. Acceptable types of pet, size and breeds may be restricted, and added costs may apply. Ask the owner about pets before booking.
During your stay:
- Review check in & check out procedures before leaving home. Save the instructions to your smartphone, and take a printed copy.
- During arrival, make note of any issues with the rental property and immediately alert the owner. Record all correspondence in case a dispute arises.
- Hosts are great sources of help! Don't be shy to ask any questions before, during, or after your stay.
- Respecting late-night quiet hours and parking policies can make a stay significantly more pleasurable. You'll enhance your chance to make local friends, and resident neighbors are often a fantastic source for finding the best local beaches.
- To expand on our last point... Ask a local resident! Residents can often help you find exactly what you're looking for. Who better to ask where to find the fresh catch of the day, have a great night out, or the best spots for fishing?
- Protect the rental owner (and your stuff!) by locking the rental when you are out, just like you would at home.
- Double-check the rental property to confirm that you've packed all your belongings at departure. Check bathrooms, dressers, and closets for hidden items. Clean out the refrigerator and take or dispose of leftovers.
- Inspect the property one final time and scan for damages to the property or contents. We suggest inspecting the property with the property manager whenever possible. If the host isn't available, take video and pictures of the property to record its condition.
- After your trip, leave a review! Property managers rely on excellent ratings to stimulate more reservations. They'll be much obliged for your review. Alternatively, if something went awry, other families will appreciate that you share your experience and help them have the best future vacation. Please be fair with your feedback If something fell short of expectations, consider whether the property manager had any control over the issue, and if so, whether they responded reasonably to remedy it.
