5 Tips for Planning Your Last Minute Vacation

1. Pick a Location

While it might be tempting to consider several different locations, it's easiest to plan once you have settled on a destination. If you're living in the northern part of the country, a warm getaway might be exactly what you need. Known for its world-class shelling beaches, perfect winter weather, and laid-back island lifestyle, Sanibel is the perfect destination for your last minute vacation. Sanibel Island is a great place to visit no matter what season! 

2. Be Flexible

It's helpful to be flexible when you're planning a last minute vacation. While many of our vacation rentals feature the most popular amenities, being flexible on location and dates can play a big role in the unit that you're able to secure. VIP Vacation Rentals boasts a selection of pet friendly vacation rentals, beachfront condos, and more in beach resort communities throughout Sanibel and Captiva islands. 

3. Determine Your Travel Plans

Are you going to be flying to your destination or are you planning a road trip to Sanibel Island? Make sure to have a general idea of the cost of getting here and how you plan to arrive before booking your stay. Sanibel Island is a short drive from the Southwest Florida International Airport in Fort Myers, and many of the big airlines fly here. If you're driving, get your car road-ready and plan for a safe excursion to Southwest Florida. There are plenty of great spots to stop along the way! 

4. Plan What You'll Pack

A last-minute getaway shouldn't get derailed by planning and packing your things. Once you start to look into Sanibel Island rentals, consider what you'll need to bring with you and if there is anything else you'll need for a great stay. Consider beach essentials that you might not have if you're in a cold weather state, including a bathing suit, sunscreen, flip flops, and beach towels. Once you know you have everything you might want to bring, you can be certain that once you book your stay you'll have plenty of time to get your things together. 

5. Discover Activities and Things to Do

When you're planning a last minute vacation, you don't have a ton of time to research the best things to do and see on your trip. At VIP Vacation Rentals, we strive to make it easy for you to know the insider's scoop on the best things to do here. Visit our beautiful beaches and nature preserves, book a boat tour or fishing charter, or just unwind at your rental with a good book.
