Why is daily apartment lease becoming increasingly popular?

Daily apartment lease, “apartment for a day”, has become the most popular form of accommodation in the past years in Serbia and abroad.

The rent prices, the quality, the wide range of apartments on offer... are only some of the reasons why numerous guests choose this option instead of renting a room in a motel or a hotel when coming to Belgrade. Furthermore, in the digital age we live in, it has never been easier to book the desired accommodation, which certainly contributes to the popularity of the apartment for a day web page, which offers various types of accommodation.

What makes the daily apartment lease different compared to hotel accommodation?

Hotels used to be considered no. 1 when it comes to accommodation in Belgrade. However, apartment accommodation has slowly, but surely, taken the first place. Although hotels are still very popular, plenty of guests have fully replaced them with apartments for a day.

The reason lies primarily in the prices of apartment accommodation, which are far more affordable than hotel rooms. For the same amount of money which gets you a hotel room with a bathroom, you can enjoy the comfort and the privacy offered by an apartment. This is a great advantage of apartments for a day compared to hotel accommodation. Furthermore, as already mentioned, the privacy you get as soon as you are handed over the keys by the owner is a very important factor in choosing an apartment over a hotel.

There's also the fact that these apartments are located throughout the territory of Belgrade, allowing you to pick where you want to stay. The apartments offered vary in structure and the equipment available, depending on your needs. You can choose a studio apartment for one or two people, or larger apartments for families of groups of friends. While it might seem unreal that an entire apartment, fully equipped with beds, a bathroom and a kitchen, can be rented at very affordable prices, that's where the advantage of apartments for a day lies. You can make yourself at home.

The advantages of an apartment for a day compared to a hotel are as follows: affordable rent prices, comfort and privacy, a wide choice of apartments of various structures all over Belgrade, as well as the features and the equipment.

Why rent an apartment through local web portals, and not through Booking or Airbnb?

If you are renting an apartment for the first time and want to go to world-famous portals, namely, Booking and Airbnb, that's not a bad option, but before you do so, we suggest you take a look at what local portals have to offer.

It often happens that guests are attracted at first sight by the low rent prices at Airbnb, but the price you see does not include additional commission and cleaning costs, which are added right before you book the apartment. Furthermore, when you book accommodation through Booking and Airbnb, you need to provide your card number in order for your stay to be paid right away. Local portals, on the other hand, do not require this. In 50% of the cases, the full reservation is paid upon the arrival to the apartment and the handing over of the keys, whereas advance payments are made only for extended reservations as a guarantee of arrival.

For example, if you suddenly need to travel to Belgrade, instead of losing time booking your accommodation and leaving your data, it's enough to contact the local portal Apartmani Beograd (Belgrade Apartments) by mail, phone, or through social networks, and they will confirm your reservation in a matter of seconds, and without any hidden costs. The price you see on the website, then, is the price you pay upon your arrival to the apartment. The process is very simple, the service is quick, and your reservation is secure.

How to book accommodation for a company?

If you are planning a business trip to Belgrade, it is important to know that certain accommodation units offer the option of paying through the company's account. When booking your accommodation, you need to emphasize that the payment is done through the company's account in order to be emailed the pro forma invoice. You need to email the company's data to the agency, that is, the portal through which you are booking the apartment and you will be shortly emailed the pro forma invoice. The original invoice is sent to the email address or the physical address of the company upon the completion of your stay.

Furthermore, there is an option of paying by credit card (along with the issuing of an invoice) for certain apartments, upon arrival.

How to book an apartment for a day?

We've already said that the process of booking is very simple. There are several ways to book the desired accommodation: by email, phone or through social networks.

On the website, enter the dates of your stay, the location where you want to stay and the number of people who will stay at the apartment. The website automatically filters the offer in line with the request and displays a list of available apartments matching the search criteria. All you need to do is select the apartment and email the request. We emphasize that this is only a request, and not a direct reservation, which means that, once you get an answer with all the necessary information (price, time of entry etc.), you need to confirm the reservation. This is done because a person can send several different request, so making a difference between requests and direct reservations makes the who process simpler. After you confirm the reservation, you receive a confirmation of the reservation along with the necessary data (the name and the contact info of the owner who hands you over the key). All you need to do is to then contact the owner and agree the details of the arrival.

For some guests, the simplest option is to book accommodation by contacting the web portal by phone. Communication by phone is the biggest advantage of local portals compared to Booking and Airbnb. Similar to the request by email, you list all the criteria and the operators then send you a list of available apartments in line with your criteria. Furthermore, the operators can considerably facilitate your search for a perfect apartment for a day. After you select the apartment, leave your data and you will be sent the reservation data to your phone (and, as an option, to your email address).

The third option is communication through social networks (Facebook, Instagram or Twitter). Your question will be answered as soon as possible and you will be sent a list of available apartments.

The list of available apartments comes in the form of a link which takes you to an overview of several apartments, among which you choose the one that suits you the most. By clicking on a listed apartment, you are shown the presentation featuring a short description, the location, the features and the photographs of that apartment, allowing you to choose the apartment that suits you.
