We will contact the owner of the apartment and then we will confirm you if the apartment you have selected is available for the dates you choose and in the same email we will invite you to reserve through the link where you have to complete the require information. When we receive the payment of the reservation you will receive the last email where we will confirm you the reservation of the apartment and also you will find in the same email the exact address of it and the hour of when we will deliver to you the keys.

If we don’t receive your confirmation in 24 hours the process of your request will expire and you have to start all the process again from 0.

According to the scheduled check out time the owner will go to say goodbye and deliver the deposit, if when you receive the apartment you dont have an schedule time to leave you should call the owner 48 hours in advanced to let it know what time they have to go to take the keys.

If you arrive through an international flight, normally we calculate two hours to deliver the keys of the apartment. If you arrive through a national flight, normally we calculate one hour. The time we used to deliver the keys are: everyday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. If you flight arrive in a time that we need to deliver the keys after 9 p.m or before 9 a.m it has an extra charge of USD 30. And if you arrive at the apartment from 00 to 6 a.m the extra charge is USD 50.
11. What happens if my flight is delayed?
When you confirm the reservation request our system ask you the flight number. This is VERY IMPORTANT to us because we use that number to check in the arrival day at the airport. You don’t need to worry calling to us to inform the delay so if you give the flight number is enough, and what we will do is check finally at what time you will arrive and after that we recalculate again two hours to wait for you at the apartment.
12. What happens if i lost a connection and i will be arriving to Buenos Aires with a different flight number?
In this case you should contact to us through e-mail or calling to inform us the new arrival flight number. Because if we don’t have the last number of your flight is impossible for us to check at the airport.
13. What happen if i loose my luggage once at the airport in Buenos Aires?
The same as the last question you should contact to us through a call to tell what happens and we will recalculate a new time for you to deliver the keys.
14.For how long the representative will be waiting for us at the apartment?
Our representative will wait 40 minutes after the schedule time for any problem or delays from (flights, traffic on the town), etc.
15. What happens if i arrive to the apartment more than 40 minutes delayed and i could not inform about the delay?
If this happens the only thing you have to do is call to us and we reschedule time to deliver the keys and sign the contract, all this is depending on the days and times.
16. How should i calculate my departure time from the apartment?
If you will take an international flight you should ask a taxi three hours before the departure time. For example if your flight leaves at 4 p.m, you should ask a taxi at 1 p.m.
17. Have the apartments a check in or check out time?
Usually the check in time is depend on the arrival time of the flight and check out time is 10 a.m.
18. How the system calculates the cost of my stay?
For the apartments which have daily prices we calculate (daily price times quantity of days). For example: 40 dollars times 8 nights= 320 dollars.
For the apartments which have weekly and monthly prices we do the following steps:
a) If you reserved for a week, you will pay a weekly price.
b) If you reserved more than a week and less than 21 days, you will pay daily price times nights.
c) If you reserved more than 21 days until 1 month, you will pay for 1 month.
d) If you reserved for 1 month, you will pay for 1 month. (MONTH IS EQUAL 30 NIGHTS)
e) If you reserved for more than 1 month and less 2 month, you will pay for 1 month plus the remaining of days for the 2nd month.
