Frequently Asked Questions
How do I book accommodations?
Go to the Book Online button located on the web page of each listing. You will need to pay a down payment of 15%-25%, which will later be subtracted from the total rental amount. In some apartments, mainly those with instant confirmation, a full payment is required upon booking. Please rest assured that in case of cancellation your money will be refunded according to the cancellation policy.

What is the Security Deposit?
The security deposit protects the owner against damage or loss. The deposit amount is listed on the web page of the property and is payable using one of the payment methods listed.

Are there any additional fees?
Some owners charge an additional amount for electricity based on your usage, as well as a one-time cleaning fee. Each listing will state explicitly if these charges are included or not.

What are the benefits to booking an online apartment rather than a standard hotel?
There are many reasons why…Here’s the top 5:
1. Price – Vacation rentals are cheaper than hotels by 30%-50%.
2. Space - Apartments are much larger and more accommodating than a hotel room. The difference is much more significant when it comes to a family vacation with 4 or more guests.
3. Location – Vacation apartments are all over the city whereas hotels are usually located in the tourist areas only.
4. Kitchen – One of the most significant advantages of vacation apartment over a hotel is the kitchen. It allows you to prepare your own meals, with no time limitation and with the ability to invite your guests. It also goes without saying that a lot of money is saved.
5. Experience City Living – Vacation apartments allow you to meet and be involved with the locals, to live like one of the city’s residents, and fully enjoy local facilities such as supermarkets, bars, and restaurants.
