Do the rentals include all ancillary costs? Will there be additional costs for me?
Yes the specified rentals include all ancillary costs (among others, electricity, water, heating, internet, etc.), in order to keep the payment and processing as simple and predictable as possible for you as a tenant.
The only binding additional costs result from the final cleaning after your departure. This depends on the condition in which you leave the flat, which is why this is fair invoiced due to the effort.
Of course, you can also book a parking space (if available), a regular cleaning, or other extra chargeable services.
What is the minimum rental period for apartments?
FARAWAYHOME does not mediate holiday flats, but rather furnished flats on a temporary basis, so the minimum rental period of most rental properties is 3 months.
However, there are also Apartments you can rent starting already from 1 month. In most cases these are so-called "serviced apartments".
You will find the information about the minimum rental period of an apartment on the respective details page of the flat.
Our tip: Search directly for you desired rental period and you will only receive search results of which their minimum rental period matches your rental period.

No. You do not have to create an account to rent an apartment.
You just have to send an inquiry via the website and then confirm / verify your employer via your business e-mail address. After that your inquiry will be forwarded to the landlord and checked.
