Renting a Paris apartment - what else to ask?

Jump to last reply

Hi- we've found an apartment to rent in the Marais with our 2 kids in the Marais, off of Rue Bretagne. Our main requirements were 1) either an elevator or on a low floor, 2) air-conditioning, 3) clean and updated.

Once I read the rental agreement I became more hesitant to give a deposit to a company in Europe (Paris Deluxe), with whom I've had no previous experience. We have rented vacation homes many times here in the US and the rental contracts have been more "air tight," so to speak. (Yes I have googled the agency and read reviews here and on other websites. There are few reviews.)

What other questions should I be asking of the agency to make sure they are reputable?
Anything else we should consider about the apartment to make sure it's a pleasant stay? This is a big trip for us so I'd like to make sure the apartment is a nice place to come home to at the end of the day. A good night's sleep makes a world of difference to our kids!

There is a "no cancellation" policy on the rental. I'm not sure if this is standard on apartment rentals in Paris. At a hotel you can usually cancel at some point in time in advance without penalty. Does anyone know if travelers insurance would provide coverage for the apartment rental in case of emergency?

Thanks so much.
