We hope you will find answers to your questions! Don't hesitate to contact us if not!

 

 

Booking process

 

How do I book a room?

To book a room, you can send us a request via our website. If the flatshare is available and the requested dates are accepted, we will send you an email that your request was accepted. Be careful, the room is not yours yet!

To confirm your booking, you will be ask to pay the booking fees and deposit, and then your first rent at least 2 weeks before your arrival.

For last minute bookings (less than 15 days before check-in date), you will have to pay the booking fees, deposit and first rent at once to confirm your booking.

 

What will happen if I do not pay the first rent two weeks before my arrival?

If the payment of the first rent remains unpaid two weeks before your arrival, the agency will cancel your booking and will keep your booking fees and the deposit for the owner as a penalty in order to compensate for loss resulting from cancellation of the reservation.

 

What will happen if I cancel my reservation after I paid my booking fees and deposit?

Booking fees are not refundable. When you have paid the booking fees, you are committed to rent the room you picked, and the agency is committed to save that room for you and not to rent it to another customer.

Therefore, if you change your mind about the room you booked :

  • Where cancellation occurs more than one month before the date of arrival, the deposit and first rent will be repaid. Booking fees will be kept.
  • Where the cancellation occurs between 15 days and one month before the date of arrival, the deposit will not be repaid. Booking fees will be kept.
  • Where the cancellation occurs less than 15 days before the date of arrival, the deposit and first rent will not be repaid. Booking fees will be kept.

 

Flatshare


Can I visit my room before booking?

We provide an online booking service through a platform especially built to make the booking process easy, fast and secure, so you won’t be needing to visit our properties. Discover our wide range of rooms and studios through the pictures, and feel free to contact us if you have any question about the flatshares!

How many flatmates will be staying in the apartment?
