Vacation home rental management companies in the Southport-Oak Island area of North Carolina are applauding the latest efforts of insurance companies to work with the general public to reduce their risk in early bookings of vacation home rentals at the beach.

In response to their customers, select trip insurance providers have decreased the minimum employment time requirement from five years to one year. Trip insurance is purchased at the time of booking for a nominal fee based on total rental cost.

If for various reasons, including a job loss, the insurance company refunds the customer up to 100 percent of the rental cost.
