Renting step by step

Renting with Italy in Style is very easy

1. Look for properties on our online catalog
Our catalog offers a wide range of solutions for your vacation. If you cannot find what you are looking for, please contact us. We constantly add properties to our inventory and we may have what you need.

2. Send us your wish list
In order to better assist you, we created a wish list where you can tell us about yourself and your needs. The list will help us in recommending a selection of properties that best suit your needs.

3. Check availability
After you choose a property, contact us via e-mail or via phone to check availability. Italy in Style will verify the property's availability and book it, if available.

4. Booking contract
If the property is available, we require that a signed Booking Contract be faxed or mailed to us. You can find the Booking Contract on our web site.

5. Deposit
At the time of confirmation, a deposit, if booking more than 10 weeks before the rental, or the full contract amount, if booking within 10 weeks of rental is required. The deposit amount is 50%. Payment can be made by check or credit card. If you pay by check, your reservation will be secured upon receipt of your check (which must be no later than 7 days after our receipt of the signed Booking Contract). A fee applies for payments by credit card.

6. Travel insurance
We strongly advise clients to purchase Travel Insurance when booking a property. Buying travel insurance protects your investment. Italy in Style recommends Travelex, a leading Travel Insurance company. You can select any of the options offered by clicking on the Travel Insurance link on our web site. If you choose not to purchase insurance, we will ask you to sign a waiver declaring that you have not purchased insurance, and fully understand the risks and liabilities of such a decision.

7. Invoice
An Invoice with confirmation number will be mailed to you once payment is received. The invoice will show the amount and due date of any balance due.

8. Balance
The final payment is due 10 weeks before the start of the rental period. The amount and due date will be shown on the Confirmation Invoice - see # 7.

9. Travel documents
A voucher will be sent to you at least 14 days before your departure date. This includes arrival/departure instructions, information about the property and directions. There will also be the name and telephone number of a local agent / key holder who will assist you with any questions you may have during your stay.

10. Security deposit
In most cases, a security deposit in cash Euro is payable to the local agent or key holder upon arrival at the property. In some cases a credit card authorization is required. This information will be specified on the Invoice.

11. Enjoy your stay
Should you need assistance or have any problem with the property while you are there, please call the local agent. This is an important first step. If the problem is not resolved in a timely manner, please contact Italy in Style so we can address the issue.

12. Drop off the keys
Before departure arrange a time to drop-off the key with the local agent. Upon checkout you will receive back any security deposits, minus any locally payable items or services, i.e. utility charges.

13. Additional charges
Any charges that cannot be calculated at checkout (i.e. telephone use not monitored by a meter in the house) will be billed to you once the property owner receives the bill from the utility company. This takes approximately two months.

14. Complete feedback form
Your feedback is important to us. We always strive to offer our clients the best possible experience. Please take a few moments to complete the questionnaire about your vacation at the property. Thank you.
