Frequently asked questions for this offer
What happens after I make a reservation?
Once you send a reservation request, the landlord is notified that you are interested in
their offer. From that moment, they have 24 hours to approve or reject your reservation.
Landlords are mainly interested in the profile of their tenant. Do not forget to fill in
all necessary information, add your profile picture, or even make a short video about
yourself. Doing that will make you more attractive for the owner and your reservation
will more likely get approved.
What is the standard furnishing of flats?
All the apartments on offer on Flatio must meet certain standards. We require fully
furnished and equipped ones, dishes, cutlery and internet connection included.
What is a medium-term rent?
The duration of a medium-term rent is usually 1 to 12 months. Most of the landlords
offer long-term rents or rents for just a few days, therefore getting a medium-term rent
without Flatio is not that easy.
Can I go through the contract before I make a reservation of the
You can take a look at the contract in advance and online with every offer. After you
sign it, you will find it in the application My Housing.
While arranging a contract on Flatio, you do not have to worry that it could be
disadvantageous for you. Our contracts are made so that we avoid all problems! All of
them are the same, used by all the landlords on Flatio.
Can I see my chosen accommodation in person before I sign the
Your time is precious. That's why we've added a virtual tour option to our platform so
you can see some of the rentals listed on Flatio from the comfort of your own home.
If a virtual tour isn't available for the accommodation you've chosen, you can contact the landlord and ask them if they're
willing to give you a personal tour of the rental unit.
If you move in and find that the rented accommodation doesn't match the information on
Flatio at the time the reservation request was sent to the landlord, you can withdraw
from the lease agreement under certain circumstances explained in this article in our help center.
Also, under our "secure move-in" policy, we'll assist you with moving to an alternative
accommodation if you report within a certain period of time that the rental unit doesn't
match the ad and the landlord doesn't fix the problem immediately. You can read the
details in our help center.
How can I pay?
On Flatio, you have a variety of payment methods to choose from. You can use your card,
payment gateway or bank transfer. Just pick the one which suits you the most.
How can I cancel my reservation?
How you can cancel a reservation varies depending on what stage the reservation is
Is your reservation request still waiting for landlord approval? Then you can simply
cancel it directly from your My Housing web app!
However, suppose the owner has already approved your reservation request, and you are no
longer interested in it. In that case, you can still cancel the reservation before you
sign the lease agreement. Just consider that you should do this only in essential cases.
Because when the landlord accepts your reservation, their property is stopped being
advertised, and they can lose the chance to rent their property to someone else.
Do you have an approved reservation and also a valid agreement? In order to cancel your
reservation, contact Flatio customer support well in advance of your contract beginning
(the specific time and amount of refund depends on the type of cancelation policy).
