Vacationing on Hilton Head Island? These Customizable Out-of-Office Messages Are for You!

This time of year is perfect for booking your escape to Hilton Head Island. After all, the weather here in the Lowcountry is ideal, the sun is shining, and there are plenty of exciting ways to spend your days. And if your dream vacation is more about relaxing than thrills, don’t worry, Hilton Head Island is just the spot for you as well. In fact, no matter what you’re looking for in a vacation — from arts and culture to outdoor recreation, days on the water to days on the greens, beautiful beaches to delicious dining, you’ll find it here on America’s Favorite Island®!
Of course, booking a vacation always comes with a little bit of preparation, including letting your coworkers know you’re out of the office. And luckily, we’re here to help. These customizable out-of-office messages are a fun way to let others know you’re having a fabulous time here in the Lowcountry!

You’re Off on a Culture Quest

Hi there, and thanks for reaching out.
I’m currently out of the office and spicing up my life with cultural tours and foodie adventures on Hilton Head Island. (With more than 250 restaurants and dozens of Lowcountry dishes to try — plus countless museums, galleries, and shops to explore — this could take a while.)

If you need immediate assistance, [INSERT NAME] is happy to lend a helping hand and can be reached at [INSERT EMAIL ADDRESS]. Otherwise, I’ll be back to stirring things up when I return on [INSERT DATE].

You’re Exploring the Great Outdoors

Hi there. Thanks for your email.

I’m currently out chasing waves, exploring trails, and soaking up the sun on Hilton Head Island. Please consider my inbox off the grid as I explore, bike, and kayak my way around the Island.

If your request is urgent, you can contact [INSERT NAME] at [INSERT EMAIL ADDRESS]. Otherwise, I’ll be back and ready to tackle emails on [INSERT DATE].

Here’s to wild adventures and untamed inboxes!

You’re Going on a Golf Getaway

Hi there, and thanks for your email.

I’m currently out of the office and trading the nine-to-five for the front nine on Hilton Head Island, where I’ll be chasing birdies instead of emails. So, please don’t expect a quick response while I work on my swing and dive into life on “Golf Island”.

If your request is urgent, [INSERT NAME] is ready to chip in and can be reached at [INSERT EMAIL ADDRESS]. Otherwise, I’ll get back to you when I return on [INSERT DATE].

I hope you’re having a par-fect day, just like me.

You’re Ready to Relax

Hi there. Thanks for taking the time to reach out.

I’m currently out of the office, my coffee replaced with an ice-cold drink, and my shoes swapped for sandals. I’m relaxing on the beaches of Hilton Head Island, and the last thing I want to do is get sand in my computer — so I left it back home!

If you have an urgent matter that needs to be addressed, contact [INSERT NAME] at [INSERT EMAIL ADDRESS], and they’ll gladly help you. Otherwise, I’ll have my toes out of the sand and be back in the office on [INSERT DATE].

I hope you’re feeling beachy keen. I look forward to chatting with you when I return.

With our year-round sunshine, seaside relaxation, array of accommodations, Lowcountry way of life, championship golf courses, and plenty of natural beauty, there’s no better reason (or time) to start planning!
