Are you planning a trip to Myrtle Beach and you’re on a shoestring budget? We know you don’t want to be brown bagging your meals while here or sleeping in a tent either. No worries – we have tips to help you save money on Myrtle Beach house rentals that you will be able to spend on other things.
Myrtle Beach is known for its 60 miles of beach, awesome surf and temperate climate. While a Myrtle Beach trip in general offers one of the most affordable vacation destinations in the United States, any type of traveling can get pretty costly, pretty fast.
1.) Book As Early As You Can
This is so important that we can’t stress it enough. If you are thinking about renting a vacation home, you must make your reservation as early as you can. By doing this you will have the largest selection of vacation homes available to you at the best price. Prices of Myrtle Beach house rentals increase dramatically the longer you wait. To save the most money visit during the off-season (Oct.-Mar.).
2.) Plan Your Days Around Free Recreational Activities
A great way to save some money is to take advantage of the free activities in the area and that come with your rental. Take a trip to one or more of the wonderful lighthouses, go to free festivals and events taking place in the area, go for a bicycle ride, take a walk along the boardwalk, go shell collecting, or just spend the day on the beach relaxing. The possibilities are endless.
3.) Take Advantage of seasonal Specials and Deals
Sloan Realty often offers special deals on Myrtle Beach house rentals, many of which can save you hundreds of dollars on your rental. By checking our website you can find many great deals throughout the year.
