How to get the best deal on your rental

  • Many property management companies and rental homes provide Wilmington, NC area promotional travel books that feature money-saving deals, either offered independently by vendors, or through a relationship between the property manager and the merchant itself. These guides provide an excellent start to your rental home search.
  • Able to change your trip dates? Off-peak rates are usually a fraction of maximum prices.
  • Are you a armed forces veteran? Quite a few management companies provide unique discounts to veterans and active-duty military. Be sure to confirm with property owner to see if your vacationing crew is eligible for a special offer.
  • Is there a particular experience that you are most getting excited about ? Make sure to prioritize your proximity to the activities and places of interest you are most interested in.
  • Consider getting trip insurance along with your rental contract. Trip insurance, which usually will cost you somewhere between 1% - 5% of the basic rental cost, offers vacationers reimbursement of their rental costs for any days missed due to personal medical related emergencies or hurricanes, and additionally ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs or expenses, such as an unplanned hotel stay or extra fuel.

We've put together a brief guide to assist you in getting most from your rental property experience.

Finding and reserving the right rental property:

Do you believe "Newly renovated 5 Bedroom Oceanfront Home with Stunning Views!" is the best rental for your next getaway? Look over this check list to confirm it fits all of your needs.

The Earlier, The Better

Wilmington, NC vacation rentals start booking very early. Reserving your rental property 6-12 months before your travel dates is highly recommended, when possible. Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years are excellent times to find and book your rental..

Choose your Area and Vacation Week

Agreement can be tricky among loved ones, but once this complicated part is finished everything will start to fall in place.

Bedrooms and Bed Sizes Matter

Determine who is traveling, and how many/what sort of bedroom configuration you should have. Be aware that many rental homes list maximum guest capacity, which often includes sofa beds in the living area. It is important to determine what is acceptable for your party. Specific descriptions of bedrooms and beds are commonly accessible on the internet. Otherwise, communicate with the property owner before you book.

Determine Your Budget

The majority of rentals are marketed with a cost range. Determine the cost for your selected trip. It could be at the top end of the range. Be sure to get cost-sharing commitments from company prior to reserving a pricey rental home. Generally speaking, just one person in the group will be responsible for making the complete reservation and collecting each family member's share.

Vacation home Features

What amenities is your group interested in? Do you want a rental home with outside kitchen? Does the unit need to be beach front, in town, or in close proximity to night life? Are extras like beach chairs, gas grills, beach umbrellas, carts or coolers available and included in your rental home rate? Gather a list of "necessities and desires" from your company to help filter your search to the most suitable property.

Accessibility and Special Circumstances

Sometimes the senior generation has problems with stairs. If wheel chair entry, elevators, pool lifts or other special devices are necessary, factor that into your search. The majority of rental home listings will include a list of amenities.

Take the Dog

Make sure you include your companion! Although quite a few vacation homes allow animals, guidelines and fees fluctuate per property. Study your contract thoroughly! Additional charges may apply when animals are included. When in doubt, ask the property owner and get it in writing.

Searching the Internet

A number of internet resources exist to match vacationers with rental home owners.. In addition to Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we suggest searching Google for "Wilmington, NC local vacation homes" for local rental management companies. Local agencies often have an exclusive assortment of vacation rentals daily and weekly.

Negotiate the Price

Re-read the description to make sure the vacation home has everything you need. If something is missing, the vacation rental management company might know of very similar properties that better suit your style and budget..

Some property owners will negotiate prices, and some will not. If the price isn't negotiable, the number of nights may be. Negotiating rates is more effective through the off-peak season when many rental homes sit vacant.

Read the Total Contract

Learn which of the following is included in your quoted rate:

  • Utilities
  • WIFI Access
  • Telephone service
  • Pool and hot tub heating
  • Pay Per View Movies
  • Cleaning Service
  • Trash collection
  • Maintenance (get a phone number)
  • Check in & Check Out Key Exchange
  • Parking Fees

Get a total that includes taxes, pet and other extra fees.

Trip Insurance

Be sure to be aware of the cancellation policy prior to reserving. Vacation home management companies and individual property owners commonly offer their guests the option to buy trip insurance. Trip insurance, which typically costs somewhere between 1% - 5% of your base vacation rental price, provides travellers with reimbursement of their vacation costs (and subsequent rental property costs) for any days missed due to personal medical emergencies or storms, in addition to hurricane evacuation costs, such as a unexpected hotel stay or additional gas.

Reserve your Rental

After you feel you've identified "the one", begin the reservation process. You will likely be asked to submit a security deposit at time of reservation.

Where to Get Help

Be sure to get the manager's contact number and entry/exit procedures for your rental home. We suggest keeping the contact's information in your smart phone and wallet.

Congrats! All that is left is enjoying your visit!

During your Stay

  • Take notes of any damages soon after you arrive. We also suggest immediately calling the property manager with a report of any wear and tear, together with your request for any needed repairs.
  • Ask questions. You may need instructions for a fireplace, TV or jacuzzi. Contact your rental manager. They are there to help. A phone call can save several hours of trouble.
  • Don't forget to be a good neighbor. Residents will probably be as friendly to you as you are respectful of them. 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. Natives are a great source of advice. Who better to ask where to get the best chicken wings, have a great night out, or the best places for shopping?
  • Enjoy your stay! Make certain to protect the property owner (and your things!) by keeping the home locked up while you are away, exactly like you would in your own home.

Leaving Paradise

  • Always make sure you've packed everything. Check drawers, bath cupboards and wardrobes.
  • Be sure to walk through the rental one final time and look for damages. We recommend walking through with the rental manager whenever you can (this may not be possible).. If the property manager is not available, make sure that you take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • How was your trip? Many rental property websites ask for comments after your stay is complete. Property owners and rental managers will thank you for glowing recommendations. If anything was wrong and they did not correct it in a reasonable manner, or if the property was not as described, you may want to make it a point as part of your critique.

Use Your Experience

Hold a meeting with your travel companions. Does everybody want to go back? Maybe everything ended up being wonderful and you are happy to re-book the same rental for your next vacation. Otherwise, you have acquired useful rental search experience that can help with your next search.
