Nobody wants to cancel a stay in Paris, whether it was booked a long time ago or not, but sometimes you must do it because of compelling circumstances.


Cancellation insurance covers you effectively against the most common risks.


Why choose a “cancellation/interruption of stay” insurance?


You booked one of our 6,000 apartments for your next Parisian stay but you must suddenly cancel.


The cancellation rules established with the owners of our apartments being strict, Paris Attitude strongly advises you to take out a “cancellation/interruption of stay” insurance to be reimbursed for expenses already incurred if an unforeseeable event beyond your control requires you to cancel your stay.


Good news: this insurance also allows you to be reimbursed for the rents you have already paid in case you need to interrupt your stay.


Taking out a “cancellation/interruption of stay” insurance is by no means mandatory, but to provide for contingencies before or during your stay, it’s best to be well insured!


When to take out a cancellation/interruption of stay insurance?


The warranties apply automatically, provided that the insurance was taken out before the start of the rental period, and within a maximum of 10 days from the signing of the lease or payment of the deposit.


The price of insurance represents 3.5% of the total price of your rental (rents + agency fees).


Here’s an example to better understand the purpose of the “cancellation/interruption of stay” insurance:


You booked a 3-room apartment in the center of Paris for a period of 3 months.
At the time of booking, you paid agency fees, plus the first month’s rent upfront


First monthly rent paid: €3,000
Agency fees paid: €180
Total amount of the rental: €9,180 (3 months’ rent + agency fees)
Cost of cancellation of stay insurance: 3.5% of the total amount of the rental
