The deposit will be required at check-in in cash at a pre-determined amount per property at the time of booking.

We do not accept checks; If the client does not want to pay this amount in cash, you have the possibility of making a bank transfer, this transfer must be made up to 7 days before the date you wish to enter the property.

In order to be able to destine your payment, we always require a confirmation of the transfer via e-mail.

Your reservation will be validated once the reservation department of Open House sends a confirmation email.

If, for any reason beyond the control of our management, the leased property is no longer available, we offer our customers the choice of a similar property or full refund of all amounts paid. 

Check-in

Check-in time: 3:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.

The client is obliged to inform us the time of his arrival and to give us his contact number. Without this information the check-in can not be done. In the Open House check-in process, the customer will need to call our check-in department (available 24/7), (+351) 914 883 660, within thirty minutes of arrival at the property. After receiving the call, we will send the access key or one of our staff will wait for the guest at the entrance of the reserved property.

If the customer arrives before our official check-in time at 3pm, you can leave your luggage in the office during our time of operation. If the apartment is available and the client wants to be guaranteed the possibility of an early check-in, a change between 6am and 2pm can be combined for a 50% daily rental fee. This amount must be paid in advance.

For check-ins between 10:00 pm and 6:00 am, the rent equivalent to the previous day must be paid.

Check-out

Check-out Time: 06h to 11h

An Open House employee will meet the client in their apartment at pre-arranged hours in order to examine the property, receive the keys and return the security deposit.

After checking out the customer can store their luggage in our office during opening hours. If the apartment is available and the client wishes to leave only between 11am to 10pm, we require a late check-out fee of 50% of the daily rent. This amount must be paid at the entrance.

For check-outs between 10pm and 6am, we charge the rent equivalent to the next day. If the client does not check out at the agreed time, after a 30-minute grace period, a fine of 50 euros will be charged if the check-out is before 11am. After 11am, the amount charged will be the equivalent of a full night's stay.
