Please help alleviate unease with apartment rental!!

Jump to last reply

We are down to the final two apartment options for our family trip to Rome during the Christmas holidays this year. DH is starting to get very easy about renting a place from a website or agency. He's concerned that the place will not be as it appears in the photos or that it won't be available or exist at all. We've had a deposit requested by end of day tomorrow (11/1) and the balance due in cash when we arrive. Is this normal....has anyone had a bad experience with apartment rental? One flat is thru 'fromhometorome' , the other is thru VRBO. I'd prefer to do everything with a credit card so there is recourse if necessary but that option is not open. Does using PayPay linked to a credit card offer any protection??

Thanks -
