Money Saving Strategies

  • Find the tourism bureau where you want to travel. Many official tourism bureaus will send promotional guide books with promotions for accommodations, restaurants and activities. These guides can provide a great start to your rental home search.
  • Just want to stay away from the crowds and save cash? The off-peak shoulder seasons may offer incredible rates on daily rental properties.
  • Are you a armed forces veteran? Some management companies provide unique discounts to veterans and active-duty servicemembers. Make sure to ask vacation rental company to see if your vacationing crew qualifies for a reduced price.
  • Some rental properties are practically catered to specific visitors, whether it is beachfront rentals with fishing pier passes, city-center condos with close access to night life or waterfront homes that feature private boat launching areas. Make sure that you prioritize your proximity to the adventures and attractions you are most interested in.
  • Consider purchasing trip insurance along with your rental contract. Trip insurance, which usually costs somewhere between 1% - 5% of the base vacation rental price, offers travellers reimbursement of their vacation expenses for any nights missed resulting from medical related emergencies or weather, and additionally ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs or charges, such as an unexpected hotel stay or extra fuel. Trip insurance is definitely a bank account-saver if the unforseen occurs (heaven forbid!).

General Rental Home Information

Many people are shocked to discover the number of properties are offered in New Bern. Rental homes are gaining in popularity among vacationers, and visitors will find that the sheer number of vacation homes available makes it possible to find an optimum getaway to fit their New Bern crew, from tranquil condominiums to huge event homes with several bedrooms.

Vacation rentals are commonly owner operated or managed by property management companies. Property management companies are well-liked by rental owners mainly because they manage the internet marketing and operations..

We have assembled a brief guide to help you get the most from your vacation rental experience.

Where to find and reserve the perfect vacation rental:

Do you believe "NEW VRBO Oceanfront 5 Bedroom Beauty. Family Setting. Single Family Home on SOBX" is the perfect rental property for your next getaway? Read this checklist to ensure it fits your needs.

Search Early and Often

New Bern vacation homes start booking very early. To ensure the very best choice of properties, we suggest searching and booking your New Bern vacation home 6-Twelve months before your travel dates, whenever you can. Holiday gatherings can be a great time for family groups to plan their Summer trips..

Find your Area and Identify Dates

Start by deciding which particular area of New Bern you want to browse, and the choose dates you'll be vacationing.

Choosing an Appropriately-Sized Rental home

Determine who is going, and how many/what sort of bedroom arrangement you'll need. Consider that many rentals advertise maximum guest capacity, which oftentimes includes sofa beds in the living area. You'll need to figure out what is suitable for the company. Precise descriptions of bedrooms and beds are usually available online. If not, speak to the property owner before you reserve the home.

What Are You Willing to Shell out?

Confirm that "NEW VRBO Oceanfront 5 Bedroom Beauty. Family Setting. Single Family Home on SOBX" satisfies your budget *during your desired week*. Ensure that you get cost-sharing commitments from company before reserving a costly vacation property. A single individual in your family will have to be in charge of getting payments and accepting responsibility for the entire rental price at time of reservation.

Create a list of "Wishes" and "Requirements"

What amenities is the group searching for? Do you just want a rental with a swimming pool, hot tub or beach volleyball court? Do you wish to be far from the crowds, or close to civilization? Are mattress sheets offered with the rental contract, or will you need to take your own? Make a list of prioritized "needs and preferences" from your group to help narrow your search to the most suitable home.

Accessibility and Special Considerations

Commonly the older generation has trouble with stairs. Ensure that you remember and inquire about wheelchair accessibility, pool lifts and specialized equipment needs..

Your Puppy Needs a Vacation, Too

Are you or other individuals in the group travelling with a pet dog? Pet guidelines are different at each rental property. Study descriptions thoroughly. Many constraints could dismiss a prospective rental property. Read your contract thoroughly! Additional fees or costs may be applied to your agreement. When in doubt, ask the property manager and get it in writing.

Start the Search

Several websites exist to match renters with property owners.. Together with Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we advise searching Google for "New Bern local rentals" for local rental home management companies. Local vacation home management companies proudly offer a top-quality rental experience.

Negotiate

Re-read the description to ensure the property has everything you need. If something is missing, the rental management company may know of similar homes that fit your desires and budget..

Some rental home owners will negotiate prices, and some will not. If the rate isn't negotiable, the number of nights might be. Negotiating rates is more effective through the off-season when many rentals sit vacant.

Study the Agreement

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

  • Utility bills
  • WIFI Access
  • Telephone service
  • Pool Heating
  • Pay Per View Movies
  • Housekeeping
  • Trash collection
  • Maintenance (get a phone number)
  • Key exchange
  • Parking Space

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

Cancellation Policies

Be sure to be aware of the cancellation policy before reserving. Property management companies and property owners typically offer their guests the choice to purchase trip insurance. Trip insurance, which usually costs somewhere between 1% - 5% of your standard rental rate, can provide guests with reimbursement of their vacation costs (and subsequent rental costs) for any nights missed resulting from personal hospital emergencies or storms, as well as hurricane evacuation costs, such as a unanticipated motel stay or extra gas.

Book It

When everything seems right, it's finally time for you to sign on the dotted line. You'll likely need to submit a security deposit at time of booking.

Get Contact Details

Put the property manager's contact information into your cell phone and wallet for easy access to answers during your trip.

Congratulations! All that is left is enjoying your vacation!

During your Stay

  • To ensure no damages are attributed to your stay, make a record of any problem areas of the rental. Contact the rental manager immediately to report your observations. If there is a disagreement about liability later, having the documented problems and communication attempts will probably be incredibly helpful.
  • Ask questions. You could need instructions for a fireplace, Television or jacuzzi. Call your home manager. They are there to assist. A quick phone call eliminates many head aches.
  • Be respectful of the local community. Residents often live within earshot. Respecting late-night quiet hours and parking restrictions can make a trip a lot more enjoyable.
  • Ask a local. Natives are a fantastic source of suggestions. Who better to ask where to order the best chicken wings, have a great night out, or the best places for night life?
  • Enjoy your stay! Make sure you protect the owner (and your stuff!) by keeping the vacation home secured when you are away, just like you would at home.

When its Time to Leave

  • Make sure that you've packed everything. Check drawers, bath cabinetry and cabinets.
  • As soon as everything is out, perform a walk-through of the rental to make certain no damage occurred in the course of your remain. If you can, do this walk-out inspection with the property owner present. If the property manager is not available, you'll want to take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • Did you have a great time? Virtually all vacation rental sites seek feedback after your stay . Owners and property managers will appreciate your glowing recommendations. If something went wrong, we suggest being pleasant but genuine in regards to your stay. Top owners and managers will try hard to correct the issue.

Use Your Experience

Does everyone want to return next year? We hope this guide steered you to a great rental home. If not, you have gained useful experience that can help with your next search.
