Furnished flat / furnished apartment
The living arrangement furnished flat or furnished apartment is often offered by private individuals - without cleaning, linen change, concierge service or a contact person for any questions. For a furnished flat or a furnished apartment usually a rent is due and additional costs such as heating, electricity and internet (if available) will be charged separately. A furnished apartment is rarely available for a minimum stay of under one month. The supply of furnished apartments has significantly risen worldwide with the emerge of the sharing economy and the idea of sharing goods. A big advantage is the large selection of locations - especially in the metropolitan areas. In addition, many guests appreciate the very individual character of a furnished flat or a furnished apartment. Aspects such as the reliability and punctuality of the providers, the cleanliness or even the possibility of billing for a furnished apartment are negatively assessed. And even the question of insurance coverage is not always conclusively clarified: Who is liable for the guests’ properties that get lost in a break-in when renting a furnished apartment?
