Payment
Once your selection is confirmed as available and a reservation has been entered in your name, a confirmation payment of usually $300 is required within one week of the booking date. However, if the nightly rate is greater than $300 then the confirmation payment is the cost of one night. Also for extended stays, the confirmation payment may be greater than $300.  Then sixty days prior to your check in date, the balance of the reservation is due. Payments may be made by personal check, bank draft, bank wire (bank fees apply), credit card, or through the PayPal payment system.  Credit card payments may be done online using the PayPal system or by the completion of our credit card form.

Apartment Keys and Arrival Information
In most cases, the apartment keys are sent directly to the guest prior to their leaving home. There are a few apartments in which the property meets guests at the apartment and the key is handed over then (in such cases, the keys are to be left in the apartment on the departure day). For all reservations where the keys are received prior to arrival, it is the responsibility of the guest to send the keys back to our US office within 5 days of departure from the property - a self address mailer is included with the keys for this purpose, insure the package for the equivalent of 120 (or $150 US). If you fail to ship the keys within 5 days and this delay causes another guest to pay an arrival fee, you will be charged the cost of that arrival fee.

For security reasons, DO NOT carry the keys and the address of the property together. In such cases where the keys are lost with the apartment information, the guest will bear the cost of changing door lock and having new keys made, a cost that may exceed $500.

It is possible that unexpected delays in key returns and for last minute bookings, the guest will be met at the rental property and handed the keys.  In such cases, the guest will be provided with specific information and instructions that need to be followed to ensure a smooth arrival.

Renting an apartment is not like renting a hotel room in that to have a smooth arrival there is specific pre-arrival information that you must have before you step foot into the apartment.  This information is downloaded and printed from the Internet. You must have this information at hand when you arrive in Paris. You will be informed of how to obtain this information after the reservation is fully paid. Do not leave home without this information!

Cancellation Policy
Clients that cancel a booking may lose some or all of monies paid on the reservation.

  1. If another client rents the apartment for the cancelled dates, then the canceling client is refunded all monies paid on the reservation except for a $125 cancellation fee or 15% of the cost of the rebooked nights, whichever is greater.
     
  2. If the apartment is not rented for the cancelled dates and the client has made only the confirmation payment, then there is no refund.
     
  3. If the apartment is rented for some of the cancelled dates and full payment has been made on the reservation, then credit is given to the rented nights and the refund is equal to the difference between the reservation cost and the credit plus a $125 cancellation fee.
     
  4. For all cancelled reservations, the key/security deposit is always fully refundable provided the keys have been returned to Vacation In Paris.

Reservation Fees

There are no "hidden fees" in your reservation. All guests pay for just two things- the nightly rental and the damage waiver. The nightly rental rate for each property includes the cost of the following:

  • Linens and towel
  • Local Taxes
  • All Utilities (Guests are requested to conserve energy as much as possible)
  • A Clean apartment on arrival
  • The amenities listed for each apartment that may include local phone service, cable, satellite, or broadcast TV, and broadband Internet service.
  • The rental rate does not include maid service.
  • Meet and greet by the apartment manager in cases where the keys are unavailable to send before arrival. In some cases* may be a charge payable directly to the greeter for those that arrive after 6:00PM (18:00):
     

    Arrival Time

    Fee
    6-8PM (18:00 - 20:00) 35
    8-11PM (20:00 - 23:00) 50
    After 11PM (23:00) 100

    *Inquire at the time of booking if these
    rates apply to your reservation

There is a refundable key and security deposit of $150. Once the apartment door key is returned and the apartment is inspected after the stay, the deposit is returned within 10 business days. If the keys are not returned to our office in New Jersey, you may lose some or all of the security deposit.  Only return keys if we sent the keys to you before you left home. Do not return keys that were already in the apartment.

Most apartments have a short stay surcharge for stays of less than five nights; the cost is shown in the rate box appearing on each apartment page.

There may be one other charge- For clients that live outside of the U.S., there is an additional $25 fee to cover the extra cost of Global Priority mail service to ship the apartment keys and maps.

For reservations of more than 7 nights, an extra set of linens and towels will be provided at no additional cost. The client may also request the apartment cleaned and serviced at an additional cost (fees vary depending on the apartment) - This service must be arranged at the time of booking.

Accidental Damage Waiver
In order to help make your stay as worry free as possible and also to protect the apartment owner's property, all guests are required to purchase a damage waiver. The cost is $29 for apartments that have a non-discounted nightly rate of less than $250 per night and $49 for all others. This is a single charge for any length of stay and covers all accidental damage up to a maximum of $1450.00 per reservation for all guests staying in the apartment. There is a $100 deductible that can be deducted from the $150 key security deposit. The damage waiver is a purchase and the cost is non-refundable.

The Accidental Damage Waiver does not cover:

  • Damage due to intentional acts, gross negligence, or willful misconduct.
  • Lost apartment door keys- the guest is responsible for the keys
  • Damage caused by pets (pets are prohibited in rental properties
    unless specifically stated).
  • Damage done if the number of guests exceeds the number of people
    specified on the reservation.
  • Loss or damage to a guest's personal property or other property
    brought onto the premises.
  • Damage deemed as an act of God.
  • Loss of use.
  • Normal wear & tear.
  • Damage that is not reported to our US office within
    48 hours of departing the apartment.

In order to avoid possible liability, please note any damage to the property upon your arrival and report it immediately to our office in the US either by email or telephone.

Theft of Personal Property
By renting with our company, you agree that Vacation In Paris assumes no liability for any personal items that you or anyone using the apartment brings on your trip or purchases abroad. This includes, but is not limited to: cameras, computers, jewelry, luggage, cash, documents, passports, charge cards, medications, or any other personal property whatsoever. You agree that it is your sole responsibility to protect and safeguard all your personal property and items.

Check In/Check Out Times
We try to be as flexible as possible for the arrival and departure of our guests. However, on days in which there is a same day change over, guest must adhere to following rules:
          Departing guests must vacate the property by no later
          than 9:30 AM (09:30) local time
         
          Arriving guests can leave their luggage in the apartment no
          earlier than 9:30 AM (09:30) local time

If you are departing on a day in which there will be no other guest arriving you may usually leave later than 9:30 AM but you need to contact the apartment manger for final approval of the actual check out time. 

When you arrive at the apartment with the keys, you may let yourself in anytime after 9:30 by using the key and the directions given in pre-arrival file for the apartment. If you find the apartment clean, then you may occupy it right away. But if it needs to be cleaned, you may leave your luggage but you cannot occupy the apartment until the cleaners have completed their work (usually no later than 2:00 PM -14:00).

Falsified reservations
Any reservation obtained under false pretenses will be subject to forfeiture of advance payment, deposit, and/or rental money and the party will not be permitted to check in or will be required to leave if already occupying the property. Such falsification may include but are not limited to the number of persons booked into the property and the ages of the guests.

Persons less than 21 years of age may only occupy an apartment when accompanied by an adult having a minimum age of 25 years old. The minimum rental age is 21.

Outage of Technical Services
It is possible that the Internet service, telephone service, or cable TV service in your apartment is unavailable during your stay due to problems that are out of the control of the property owner. It is also possible that the Internet service provided is not compatible with the your computer's operating system or configuration. In such cases, neither the property owner nor VIP will be responsible any loses or expenditures due to the outage.

In properties that have Wi-Fi connectivity to the Internet, it is possible that the system may not be compatible with your computer or working properly. It is always a good idea to carry with your computer a standard Ethernet cable to be used if your laptop is unable to connect with the wireless signal.

Unforeseen Circumstances
If a rental property becomes unavailable or uninhabitable for any reason including but not limited to fire, water outage, water damage, electrical failure, legal restrictions, change in ownership of the property VIP agrees to use best efforts to secure an equivalent rental property for guests that have reserved the property. If an alternate property is not possible, VIP reserves the right to cancel the reservation and return all monies to the guest. In no event shall VIP be liable for any special, indirect, punitive, incidental, exemplary or consequential damages, or any damages whatsoever resulting from the cancellation of a reservation or due to the property not being available. If VIP determines that the property is uninhabitable, then the maximum liability for any nights that the guest was unable to occupy the property is equal to but not more than the reservation costs for those nights lost.

Information Contained on this Website
The specific apartment information is believed to be correct, it has been provided by the apartment owners and inspections of the properties by employees of VIP. However, VIP nor the property owner can not be held liable for any inaccuracies or changes in this information. This is especially true for services such as Internet, telephone and cable TV, or elevator where the supplier of such services or equipment failure has temporarily caused an outage. We also can't guarantee that in those properties where the Internet is available, that the service will be compatible with all computers or operating systems.

Also please note that some of the photos used on this website have been taken with wide angle lenses to show as much of the property in one photo as possible and tend to make the rooms larger than the actual size. The actual surface area given for each apartment is the best way to judge the apartment size.

The web pages may also refer to the floor number or elevation; be advised that in Europe the floors are counted from the ground floor being equal to zero, the first floor is one flight up, the second floor two flights up, etc.

There may be instances of temporary changes in the state of the surrounding area either inside the apartment building or outside the building such as work or construction on adjacent buildings or work being done on the common areas within the building or other apartments in the building. Although our policy is to advise our guests of conditions that we feel may impact their stay, this is not always possible. Discounts for such conditions will be at the sole discretion of the property owner and VIP.
