You may be tempted to think that there’s no need to plan so far in advance for vacation. After all it’s only September, and summer hasn’t even officially ended yet. The truth is that this is the best time to solidify your plans for 2013, especially if you plan on coming earlier in the year. Certain high-demand 2013 weeks will start to fill up this fall, such as Memorial Day week, Independence Day week, September SOS week, and a few others. If your plans include staying during one of these “peak weeks” you’ll want to secure your spot now to avoid being left out. Every year we reluctantly turn away those procrastinators who waited until it was too late to book their condo or house. Though we wish we could accommodate everyone, there is simply more demand than supply for these dates.
Even if you don’t expect to visit on a peak week, there is another benefit of reserving a place early. Since most weeks are still open for summer 2013, guests who book now will get first choice of properties. Though you might save some money if you wait to book until a month or two before your vacation, you may find that there is not much to choose from. Those vacationers who loved their condo this year will probably want to book it again for next year. If you already know what you want, why not make sure no one else claims your vacation week? It’s better to not take the chance and risk settling for a property that is less than ideal for your group.
We are adding new properties to our rental program all the time, so check our inventory often to see what’s new. You may find that one of these properties will fit your needs perfectly. Ocean Drive Beach Rentals’ staff is ready to help you plan your 2013 vacation every step of the way. Call us now to make sure your next vacation is the one your family will remember forever!
