Would you pay 40 euro to check in to apartment early?

Jump to last reply

We're renting an apartment for a week in March in Paris. Our flight arrives around 7:30 am on a Sunday. The apartment's rental page says check in time is 1pm. When I asked if we could check in earlier if there was no one staying in the apartment the day of our arrival, I was told we could check in at 10:00 am for an extra fee of 40 euro.

My question is this; would you pay the extra euro to check in 3 hours earlier knowing it's likely you'll be exhausted from a long flight from the US West Coast, or would you suck it up and stay out until 1pm? If you choose to save the euro, what do you do during that time, keeping in mind you'll have luggage with you, questionable weather, and about 4-5 hours to spend in the city on a Sunday morning.

I know what I think we'll do, but I'm wondering if there are options I haven't considered. BTW, I'm not arguing the legitimacy of the fee, they can charge whatever they want, only wondering what others would do in the same scenario.
