What happens after the payment of my reservation ?

Do I pay a deposit ?

we-Cities collects a security deposit (check or credit card imprint) at check-in, which is returned/reimbursed within 48 hours after your departure. This deposit allows the agency to protect the apartment against any property damage by the tenant.

The amount varies depending on the apartment: € 200 for most apartments, but it can go up to 1,000€ for certain goods.

To find the security deposit amount, see the description of the apartment. You will also be reminded of the amount in your mail confirmation.

Under French law, any person residing in a rental apartment must pay an occupancy tax. The amount is fixed according each city. Children are exempt.

Are towels and sheets provided ?

Yes. All linen is provided on arrival (sheets, towels, kitchen towels) as well as cleaning products and toilet paper

What if I break something during my stay ?

Whatever the value of the property you have damaged or broken, it is important to inform we-Cities immediately. For low value goods (less than 75 €), the easiest way is to replace the property or its value will be deducted from your security deposit.

If it is of high value, please contact your insurance to have more details.

Then a proposal will be sent to you with the agreed price per night that will be visible on the site. Once we've received the proposal initialed and signed, with a copy of identification, a certificate of ownership and a RIB, we-Cities will write and publish your announcement in French and English.

How do I get paid ?

Upon confirmation of booking, we-Cities receives the total reservation amount from the client. For short term rentals, you will receive your payment within 48 hours after the departure of your tenants. For rentals of one month or longer, we-Cities sends you 50% of the negotiated fee at the check-in of your tenant, then the remaining 50% mid-stay.

Who manages my reservation calendar ?

With your own personal log-in on we-Cities.com, you will have access to update your calendar with complete independence and ease.

Reservations made through the we-Cities website will be automatically updated in your calendar. However, if your apartment is also hosted on other rental sites, you must be careful to update your we-Cities calendar to avoid double booking.

How am I notified of a new reservation ?

Once the payment validation has been received by the customer, an email confirmation will be instantly sent including a reservation summary with the dates and your gain.

What happens if the tenant doesn't come ?

If the tenant has not canceled their stay more than 21 days before the scheduled arrival, you will be fully paid and the tenant will not be refunded.

Can I cancel a reservation ?

This is strongly discouraged as it affects the credibility and seriousness of we-Cities and the satisfaction of our customers.

However, in special cases an exception can be made. In which case the margin charged on the unhonored reservation will be deducted from the next rental. These fees cover the working time of our team who will need to relocate the client.

How to settle a dispute ?

In order to give the tenant the apartment key, they must first provide the security deposit and are covered by our Free insurance for any damage occurring during their stay.

Everything is covered by insurance

My rental income is taxable ?

Short-term furnished apartments rentals, unlike traditional leasing, benefit from a tax reduction of 50%. If your annual rental income does not exceed € 32,600, you automatically benefit and without formality, with a flat rate 50% allowance.

To declare, it is very simple: record the total amount of your rental income (rent + charges) of Proclamation No. 2042-C, under the heading "Revenue industrial and commercial non-professional." The 50% reduction will be applied automatically
