Any Black Friday deals for vacation rentals?




Hi! We're from VA and looking to head down to the Hatteras area next Memorial Day. I'm wondering if we should book the home now or wait a little bit to see if there are any deals. Any ideas if anyone runs any good deals or if I should go ahead and lock it down.

We are also in the same boat....

We had, up til recently been renting the same house every year for decades and have decided to make a change......finding right now that many homes do not have their rates even posted yet......

So its a tough call.....jump on something for "the right week" now, or wait and see.....

The cycle of re-renting the same place, has us conditioned to believe that these homes books as soon as they come available......but not sure if that is correct thinking or not??


RE: Any Black Friday deals for vacation rentals?




We have waited as late as February to book a house. I think you will find that most rentals already have their prices set for the next calendar year. If you want cheaper rates you are better off booking off peak season. Also, we always book through VRBO as rental rates seem to be a bit cheaper than using a realtor.

Last Black Friday, Hatteras Realty was taking $100 off all rentals. I went ahead and booked my January and May (Memorial Day weekend and subsequent week) trip to save the money. They didn't have most of the prices listed yet, but I already knew what the houses I was looking at rented for. However, they said they were in the middle of changing over their website or something at the time, which is the reason they gave for not having the prices listed for this year yet. By December, most prices were listed. You can still get a ballpark of what the prices may be by looking at the individual listings or calling, though. I don't remember which ones, but I called a couple other realty companies, who were not running any Black Friday deals. I'll be waiting until Black Friday to book again, for sure. An extra $100 off an already discounted off-season rental is a great deal!

I believe that Village Realty also has BF deals.

Finding a great deal is always good, however if you have found that perfect rental I believe it is always best to lock in as soon as you can. So I guess you can say there are pros and cons to both. I have booked our fav home for 2019 already.

I saw this post and called a few rental agencies. What I did find out is that some may and some may not, and many don't disclose details. I've heard about Outer Beaches doing promotions for Hatteras Island in the past and for Nags Head, Kitty Hawk, KDH, Duck, and Corolla, etc. Village Realty will be having a sale. People on their email list are supposedly getting the first notification and an extra incentive/early access. I'm on their list so will share it once I see it and book our house! Thumbs up

Memorial Day 2019? Many owners are signing their rental agreements now. This is a high demand week. There will be no deals. Book it ASAP


RE: Any Black Friday deals for vacation rentals?




If you find a cottage that fits your needs, book it, don't wait and remember all the hundreds of other families looking for the same ideal cottage. We're booked in for 3 weeks, oceanfront in SNH. We had rented the same cottage for 9 years but owners have decided to more permanently so I went searching and found what we want in the same neighborhood.

I'm already in and booked for three weeks in 2019, and I'm still a damn newbie.

Book now. The economy is strong.
