Money Saving Rental Tips

  • Many rental managers and vacation rental homes supply New Bern area discount books which feature deals, either offered individually by merchants, or by a partnership between the property management company and the local itself. These guides may provide a good start to your rental home search.
  • Want to avoid the crowds of people? The off-peak seasons can offer fantastic rates on daily rentals.
  • Active Duty and veterans of the U.S. Armed forces may be able to get price reductions. Be sure to ask property owner to see if your travelling group is eligible for a discounted rate.
  • Some homes are primarily designed for particular types of visitors. Event homes are ideal for weddings, receptions and corporate meetings. Some properties appeal to wildlife enthusiasts. Other properties are situated close to nightlife. You'll get the best value from a home that most thoroughly suits your ideal trip setting, regardless if it costs a tad bit more.
  • Property management companies and individual rental home owners commonly offer their clients an option to buy trip insurance coverage. Trip insurance, which usually add between 1% - 5% of the basic term cost, provides vacationers reimbursement of their travel expenses for any days missed a result of personal medical emergencies or storms, in addition to ensuing extra hurricane evacuation costs or expenses, like an unforeseen hotel room stay or extra fuel.

The Rental Process

You may be surprised to discover how many vacation homes are available at your destination. Rental homes are gaining in popularity among vacationers, and visitors will find that the sheer number of rentals available allows them to find an ideal getaway to fit their New Bern crew, from restful condos to gigantic event homes with several bedrooms.

Rentals are often owner operated or managed by property management companies. Rental owners frequently select management companies to facilitate marketing and advertising, housekeeping services and routine maintenance.

We have developed a short guide to assist you in getting most from your rental property experience.

How to find and book the perfect vacation home:

Before you book "Relaxing Oceanfront Living with Panoramic Views.", read through our brief checklist of things to consider.

The Earlier You Start, The Better The Selection

New Bern vacation rentals start booking early. Reserving your rental home 6-12 months in advance is usually recommended, whenever possible. Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years are excellent times to find and reserve your vacation home..

Select a Community and Date

Oftentimes, the most challenging part of preparing for your trip is figuring out where to search, and when. Once the big decisions are tackled, the rest becomes more straightforward.

How Many Bedrooms?

Determine who is joining, and just how many/what kind of bedroom setup you'll need. Bear in mind that many homes list maximum guest capacity, which often includes sofa beds in the living room space. You'll need to determine what is most appropriate for the party. Most rental listings will outline each one of the unit's specific bedrooms and mattresses.

Decide on Your Budget

Make sure that "Relaxing Oceanfront Living with Panoramic Views." works with your price range *during your desired dates*. If several groups or families are sharing the cost, check that each group understands their responsibilities and has approved a maximum they are willing to pay. Most rental contracts require a single person to be in charge of the full reservation.

Let's Talk Amenities

What property features is the group trying to find? Are you looking for a vacation property with patio kitchen? Are you more interested in a natural landscape or nightlife? Are extras like beach chairs, barbecue grills, umbrellas, buggies or coolers at your disposal and included in your rental payment? Make a list of priority features to facilitate narrow your search.

Accessability

Suitable accessibility can make or break a visit for the less-mobile. If wheel chair entry, elevators, pool lifts or other special devices are required, factor that into your search. Nearly all property postings include a list of amenities.

Fido Approved

Make sure you include your furry family members. Animals are welcome at a number of rentals, but guidelines can vary. Type of animal, size and breeds could be restricted. Study your agreement carefully! Additional fees or costs may be applied to your contract. Ask questions *well before* you reserve!

Start the Search

Several websites exist to match clients with rental owners.. In combination with Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we recommend searching Google for "New Bern local rentals" for local property management companies. In addition to having exceptional rental properties, local companies provide fantastic service..

Negotiate the Price

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

Although not true for all rental homes, many property owners and property managers will negotiate rates. If the price isn't negotiable, the number of nights might be. Off-peak weeks will likely be negotiable more often than peak-season..

Read the Entire Agreement

You really need to know which services are included:

  • Utility bills
  • WIFI Access
  • Telephone service
  • Pool and hot tub heating
  • Cable and pay-per-view TV
  • Cleaning services and housekeeping
  • Trash collection
  • Maintenance (get a phone number)
  • Check in & Check Out Key Exchange
  • Parking Fees

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

If you'd like to Cancel

Ensure you are familiar with the cancellation policy before booking. Many rental agreements include an option for trip insurance. Trip insurance defends the renter against emergencies and weather events, It provides reassurance should catastrophe strike.

Reserve your Rental

When everything looks right, it's finally time for you to sign a rental agreement. Do not forget that most rental agreements will require a significant rental down payment and/or security deposit to cover the property owner.

Get Contact Info

Remember to get the property manager's contact telephone number and entry/exit procedures for your vacation property. We suggest keeping the contact's information in your smartphone and wallet.

Good job on reserving your rental! You're on the right path to a terrific vacation!

During your Stay

  • Take notes of any wear and tear immediately after you arrive. We also recommend immediately getting in touch with the rental home manager with a report of any wear and tear, together with your request for any needed repairs. This may prevent disputes during checkout.
  • You might need instructions for a fireplace, Television set or spa. Call your rental manager. They are there to help. A phone call can save several hours of hassle.
  • Be respectful of the neighborhood. More often than not, neighboring residences are lived in by permanent locals. Respecting late-night quiet hours and parking rules can make a trip considerably more pleasurable.
  • Ask a local. Local people can often point you in the right direction.
  • Make sure that you protect the owner (and your stuff!) by keeping the vacation home secured while you are away, just like you would in your own home.

Leaving Paradise

  • Always make sure that you've packed everything. Inspect drawers, bath cabinets and wardrobes.
  • Once everything is out, perform a walk-through of the rental to confirm no damage occurred in the course of your remain. If it is possible, do this walk-out assessment with the property owner present. If the property manager is not available, remember to take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • Did you have a good time? Many rental management companies and rental websites make it easy for customers to provide feedback. If your vacation rental and/or property manager was great, they will appreciate your compliments. If something went wrong, we suggest being understanding but sincere regarding your rental experience. Top owners and managers will try very hard to fix the problem.

Learn and Improve

Hold a vacation recap meeting with your traveling companions. How did they feel about the rental? If everything was amazing, next year's trip planning will be painless. Maybe the rental property wasn't ideal, and you will better understand how to refine your search next time.
