1. Make reservations early!

Planning ahead and booking early guarantees you maximum choice. That way you can be sure to find the optimal rental, the one that best suits your needs.

2. Get a lease or rental agreement!

Since rentals involve a substantial amount of money and there's a lot of emotional involvement in your vacation, don't let it ride on a verbal commitment. Be sure to get everything down on paper before you send any payments!

3. Don't miss deadlines for deposits!

This is a sure way to ruin your vacation. It might even result in a forfeiture of monies and a cancellation of your reservation. See number 2 above.

4. Know your cancellation policy!

Get a clear cancellation policy in writing. Be prepared to sacrifice at least a portion of your deposit should you have to cancel.

5. Get complete instructions in advance!

Three things are critical to have before setting off on your vacation. Have complete driving/flying information before departure. Review your lease arrangements to pick up the keys at the rental office. Be sure to have the real estate office phone number so you have someone to contact should the unforeseen arise, 609-494-7391.
