No matter what your budget or time frame, there are endless options to help you enjoy the vacation of your dreams. We understand that vacations can quickly become a costly endeavor but Beach Colony Resort in Myrtle Beach is here to help! Use a few of our tips on how to plan a Myrtle Beach vacation on a budget and start planning your beach escape!

Book In Advance & Take Advantage of Specials

Booking your vacation well in advance will end up saving you tons of money. Prices inflate as demand for rooms increases and availability decreases, so get started early. If possible, book as early in advance as possible. Also, be sure to check the Seasonal Specials Page, and take advantage of discounted rates. Popular promotions include two free nights when you stay 7 nights, great discounts on tickets to local attractions, and don’t forget about our military discount!

Consider an Off-Season Vacation

The summer months are definitely the most popular times to visit Myrtle Beach and room rates reflect that. However, there are still plenty of great opportunities to visit the beach outside of prime vacation season. The weather in the spring and fall is still warm and sunny, meaning that you can still enjoy all of the usual beach activities. There will also be fewer crowds and you will likely find more discounts and specials on area attractions and restaurants.

Use Your VMB Benefits Card

A great perk of staying at Beach Colony Resort in Myrtle Beach is that you are given a Vacation Member Benefits Card upon check in. This exclusive card gives you fantastic discounts at a wide variety of area attractions, shops, and restaurants. Our benefits card makes it easy for you to enjoy the area attractions and everything that Myrtle Beach has to offer while sticking to a budget.

Make Meals at Your Suite or Condo

The thought of enjoying succulent seafood and steak each night is tempting, but fancy dinners can add up. Many of the Beach Colony Resort accommodations include a full in-suite kitchen, stocked with everything you could possibly need to whip up a meal for the family. Many units provide everything from dishes and cookware to utensils and a stovetop, making cooking a breeze. The more you eat in, the more money you’ll save in the long run. Also, who’s to complain about dining with an ocean view?

Enjoy Free Things to Do

Believe it or not, there are plenty of free activities to partake in; you just have to know where to look. There are tons of free promotions throughout the year in Myrtle Beach. If you are traveling to Myrtle Beach during the spring, be sure to check out our current free ticket deals. And, of course, the area parks and beaches are always free!

These are just a few of the many ways to plan a Myrtle Beach vacation on a budget, so book today! Do you have any money saving secrets? Let us know what you do to stick to a financial plan while planning your vacation!
