Statistics show that most of beach rental properties all over the country are being booked in the early spring. Planning your vacation early gives you several advantages.
First, most of the rental properties are still available, and you have a very good chance of finding the perfect rental house for you and your family. The availability calendars are more likely to have many openings (if not to be almost empty), and you can book your rental home for a week, two weeks, or a whole month without any problems. Book your dream home for as much as you need to fully enjoy the summer on the beach.
Second, many rental companies offer “early bird” discounts and specials at the season opening. Get the most out of your beach vacation without paying a fortune. Planning your beach retreat in advance gives you an ability to compare the prices and find the best deal on rentals and event tickets while they are still available.
And third, many beach rental companies, restaurants, adventure tours, and other companies work in conjunction, offering vacation packages to the vacationers. Browse the local directories to find the events in local country clubs, museums, restaurants, and right on the beach! Local restaurants and wineries often submit their coupons and special offers to the travel websites and discount sites such as Groupon, Living Social, and other discount sites. Warning: pay close attention to the fine print in the coupon; make sure that it is valid at the time of your dream beach vacation.
Planning your dream getaway early will help you save some money not only on a rental house and event tickets, but also on airfare. Booking your tickets early will give you many advantages, including the best prices and the best seats.

You know that the early bird gets the worm, but an early planner gets the best deal! Save time and money by planning your beach vacation in advance. Your friends, family, and your wallet will be thankful!
