Book in Advance & Take Advantage of Specials

Booking your vacation well in advance will end up saving you tons of money. Prices increase as demand for rooms increases and availability decreases, so get started early. The earlier you book the better! Are your travel plans a little flexible?  Sometimes moving your travel dates just slightly can be a big help, and weekdays often have a lower rate than weekends.  Also, be sure to check our Specials Page, and take advantage of the great deals. The Specials Page is always up to date, but the specials may not last long!  Popular promotions include two free nights when you stay seven 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 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 early fall is still warm and sunny, meaning that you can still enjoy all 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 CondoBeach Colony Kitchen

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, take advantage of your private balcony and dine with an ocean view!

Enjoy Free Things to Do in Myrtle Beach

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. When you book with us, ask about free attraction ticket packages, offered seasonally, and discounted tickets that can be purchased from our front desk. If you do decide to visit during the busier summer months, Myrtle Beach has free concerts at Plyler Park, free outdoor movies at The Market Common, and free fireworks at Broadway at the Beach!  And, of course, several area parks and beaches are always free. You’ll want to plan plenty of time to soak up some sun, walk our sandy beaches, and pick up seashells!

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 helps you plan an awesome and affordable vacation!
