Easy Air Rentals makes renting a property easy – but we understand that guests have lots of questions. We try to be as clear and informative as possible so we’ve put together a list of the most asked questions we get! Please don’t hesitate to discuss directly with our Guest Services Team to find out more.
Q. What is a vacation rental?
Vacation rentals are freestanding, attached or guest houses, villas, cottages, apartments, condos and timeshares offered for short term occupancy. They are largely unregulated. Some rental properties are just one in a large portfolio handled and managed by a leasing company. Other vacation rentals are cared for, and rented out by, the owner.
Q. Is Easy Air Rentals Licensed?
Yes, we are licensed in Florida as a lodging provider and each home is licensed by the state, the city and the county to be rented as a short-term rental property.
Q. What is the difference between renting through a Vacation Rental Property Company versus renting from a Homeowner?
There are millions of vacation rental choices to book through companies or individual owners and offering a range of benefits. When choosing a vacation rental from an established property management company, travelers can be assured there’s a reputable hospitality business serving them each day. Guests of professional vacation rental managers enjoy all the benefits of traditional accommodations, with many additional amenities and added values from Easy Air Rentals that remain unmatched:
Q. Do you offer any other service other than lodging?
Yes, we certainly do. Feel free to check the available options below and request more info for our Guest Service Team:
Q. Is the vacation home I see on the booking site and photo’s the one I get?
Yes, unlike most vacation rental companies, we rent the specific property you see in full detail on our website. We believe that this is the best way to ensure you will be happy with your accommodations.
Q. How can I make a reservation?
When you find the vacation home of your choice, you can either reserve the property online directly through our website online (www.easyairrentals.com) or speak with a member of our Reservations Team at • firstname.lastname@example.org. Guests may also book through our booking partner sites, Airbnb and HomeAway.
When making your reservation, all we require is a 50% down payment that is a non-refundable, which is applied to your rental cost. In most cases we require a $500 security deposit that is refundable. The remaining balance is processed only at your check-in and will be non-refundable at that point.
Q. How does the Tax work in Florida?
In the state of Florida when booking a vacation rental there are two types of tax. The first is Sales tax (7%) and County Property Tax (6%).

No, we and other booking sites such as Airbnb so require you to identify yourself by uploading a verified ID (Password, Driver’s License etc.)
Q. When is the check in and check out times?
Check-in time is after 4 p.m. Since we want to ensure everything is in good working order to make your stay enjoyable, please note that you will have access to your property at that time. Again, to ensure that everything is pleasant and enjoyable for those arriving after your departure, we ask that you please depart the property at 10 a.m. Upon request, an early check-in or a late check out, may be arranged based on availability. An additional fee $25/ hour will apply to receive a late check out. Please check 24 hours before arriving/ departing if an early check in or late check out is available.

If paying by check, must be received and clear 15 days prior to arrival. Cancellations and refunds are subject to contractual policies and procedures and must be approved by management. These policies will be made available at the time of booking and will require your compliance.
*Please note, Florida is a tropical climate as such changes in weather are to be expected. Cancellations due to weather (including catastrophic events) are not permitted.
