Does Southern Partner with Local Businesses?

The Benefits of Vacation Rentals Partnering with Local Businesses ~ Southern Vacation Rentals

In the vacation rental industry, partnerships are a two-way street. Working with local businesses is something we’re proud to do, from partnerships through our Southern Perks program to collecting donations for our local Ronald McDonald House and Alzheimer’s Association chapters. The benefits of vacation rentals partnering with local businesses are numerous. Not only do you allow for cross-promotion, but you’ll also have the chance to give back to the community and help boost these businesses up, something that’s important to do during these times!

Partnering with Local Businesses

What are some of the benefits of partnering with local businesses as a vacation rental company? For starters, it’s a great way to improve the guest experience. It helps them to feel confident in your abilities as a vacation rental company and can contribute to a five-star review. In addition, you’ll also help increase your customer base and gain more brand exposure. Who wouldn’t want that?

At Southern, we are proud to be a vacation rental company that partners with local businesses. There are a couple of different ways we do this. Our Southern Perks are exclusive discounts guests can enjoy on activities while vacationing with us along the Gulf Coast. These activities include dolphin cruises, fishing charters, pontoon boat rentals, and more. By promoting these businesses on our website where we drive thousands of users a month, we’re able to offer promotions to these companies that our guests may not have seen otherwise. Available through Tripshock, guests can conveniently book activities directly on our website at

We also advertise businesses on our Gulf Coast Guide, a visitors’ guide to each of our areas. Guests can get information on shopping, dining, leisure, and even local events while they’re here. No matter what type of traveler we are welcoming to our beach, we want to make sure they are equipped with the latest information to help make their beach getaway a breeze.
