Statistics show that most of the country-wide rental properties are held in early spring. Planning your vacation early gives you several benefits.
Firstly, most of the rental properties are still available and you are very likely to find the perfect rental home for you and your family. Availability calendars are more likely to have many openings (if not nearly empty) and you can book your home for a week, two weeks or an entire month without problems. Book your dream home as long as you want to enjoy the summer on the beach.
Second, many rental companies offer "early bird" discounts and offers at the season's opening. Make the most of your beach vacation without paying a fortune. Planning your beach retreat in advance allows you to compare prices and find the best deal on rentals and event tickets while still available.
And third, many beach rental companies, restaurants, adventure tours and other companies are working together, offering holiday packages to vacationers. Browse local directories to find events in local clubs, museums, restaurants and directly on the beach! Local restaurants and wineries often submit their coupons and special offers to travel websites and discounts such as Groupon, Living Social and other discounts. Warning: pay special attention to delicate printing on the coupon. make sure it is valid at the time of your dream beach vacation.
Planning your dream getaway early will help you save money not only on rental homes and events but also on airline tickets. Booking your tickets in time will give you many benefits, including better rates and better seats.

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