Yes for bookings of 3 months and longer. However it also depends on the availability of the property, the current tenant’s availability and the conditions the Landlord has with the current tenant, so we can’t guarantee it. We also try to offer great insight into each property with thorough descriptions, clear photos, a video and floor plan.
Yes. Each Landlord decides how much. This is made clear in their Landlord’s Conditions visible before booking. If you are not sure please ask before booking. The Security Deposit must be paid directly to the Landlord at Check-In after inspection of the property. It is the responsibility of the Landlord to refund this Security Deposit.
Methods to pay the Security Deposit, to be decided between the Landlord and the Tenant, can vary from Bank Transfer, Check, Cash or TransferWise
On your chosen property select your desired dates and click on Request to Book. The Landlord will receive the request and will either Accept or Decline. The moment the Landlord accepts you will receive instructions how to proceed to pay the Down-Payment. Before submitting you should complete your Crib Med public profile explaining about yourself. Landlords usually are curious and like to know where you are from, how old you are, what your reason for coming to their city is. The more you tell them about yourself and the people that will stay with you the better the chance they will accept your booking.

You should make sure you ask many questions before booking. This is also why we allow property viewings before booking. Generally there are only very specific circumstances under which you could be fully refunded, unless there is structural damage and / or the property is uninhabitable. Otherwise the cancellation policy stated in Pricing and Conditions must be adhered to.
Like all deposits they are refunded after check out and the property has been inspected pending no damages. It can vary from 1 day up to 30 days. The Landlord is directly responsible for returning your deposit.
The Tenant is responsible. At Check-In you should do a walk-through with the Landlord. We always recommend that within 48 hours of Check-In that the Tenant should take photos of any existing damages and send to the Landlord. This makes things clear at check out and prevents any confusion.
PRE CHECK-IN: In case of cancellation the full down-payment will be retained. No further payment will be required.
COVID – 19: In case of a PRE CHECK-IN cancellation due to Covid-19, the 1st-month rent will be retained by the owner, however, regards the Crib Med Service Fee, a voucher can be issued and can be used for another booking within 12 months from the official date of cancellation. The voucher is non-transferable.
POST CHECK-IN: This depends on the Landlord’s conditions and they can be found on the listing page and are visible before a booking. If you are unsure of the conditions please ask Crib Med before booking.
