How Driving Can Save You Loads of Cash
Have you checked the price of airline tickets lately? Like many things, the cost of air travel varies from one day to the next, but overall...flying is rather expensive. Conservatively, it would cost $2000 for a family of 4 to travel via air.
But what if you could drive to your next beach vacation destination? Ocean Isle Beach is an easy to reach location for most people living east of the Mississippi River. Diving can save you a ton of money, and it is also a great opportunity for quality family time. Plug "Ocean Isle Beach, NC" into your GPS, and see how many miles of travel are ahead of you. Based off the MPG rate for your vehicle, how much will it cost for you to travel by car?
If you still need a good reason to travel by car, we have one more for you. It gives you a mode of transportation once you reach the beach! You may want to explore some history or take a day trip!
Why Stay in a Hotel When You Can Have a House?

A vacation rental home is economical for so many reasons. They can typically house more people than a hotel. Often, it is cheaper to rent an entire house than just a hotel room.

Your family can have game night, bake cookies, or play catch. You can't do that at a hotel!

Vacation Beyond the Weekend
During the summer months, most Ocean Isle Beach vacation rentals will only rent for the entire week. Which seems perfect...because a week at the beach sounds awesome! But if you can't take off an entire week, then consider vacationing during none peak season, and staying a partial week. If you opt to stay during the middle of the week, there is a very good chance that the rates will be even cheaper!
Stay Away From Peak Season For the Best Rates
As mentioned above, off-season rates are always going to offer the best bang for your buck. But contrary to popular belief, off-season doesn't mean the middle of winter! Check for "in-season" discounts along with off-season rates.
Spring and Fall are wonderful times to visits Ocean Isle Beach, and that can certainly save you money. Double check your travel dates against our rates, and see if you can find a great deal!!
Eating In Is a Great Way to Stay on Budget
Doing a little extra meal planning is yet another way save loads of money. Pack a cooler before you leave home with plenty of travel friendly meal options. Limiting the number of times you eat out while traveling is going to save mega dinero! If you have items to make sandwiches, fruit, pre-sliced veggies, crackers & cheese, pop-tarts or granola bars, drinks (don't forget the water), yogurt, etc....you will be able to eat most meals on the go. Stopping at a rest area for a picnic is another great option.
Once you arrive at you vacation rental home, take a quick inventory of your well-stocked kitchen, and then head to the grocery store. Plan meals that will produce yummy leftovers, and be sure to grab plenty of lunch supplies! Does your vacation rental have a barbecue grill? Then be sure to pick up plenty of seafood, meat, and vegetables to cook on the grill! Yummy!!
No different than at home, dining in is one sure way to stay budget friendly!
Relax & Unwind On and Off the Beach
Ahhhh....the beach! It is the destination, the entertainment, and the recreation! There isn't much more that your family will want to do. Take time to relax and unwind....on and off the beach!
Whether you are building sandcastles, combing for sea shells, surfing, or soaking up some rays...the beach is a perfect place to spend time together as a family. Far from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, the beach becomes a sanctuary.
When you have had enough sun & surf for one day, you will have a gorgeous rental home to retreat to. You can curl up on the couch with a good book or sip a frosty beverage on the deck. Maybe a little friendly competition and a deck of cards is in the forecast?
The point is that you don't ever have to leave the beach, or your beach vacation rental, to find all the relaxation and respite you have been dreaming of. And that...will save you money!!
