Looking for holiday apartments in Copenhagen is best if you start early. However, it is of no urgency to look very early as you cannot book it and booking early means you may have to pay even before you move in actually. As you are going on a holiday, paying a month’s rent is best, if you plan staying for a month so that your roof above the head is secured upon arrival.
As the housing market is competitive in Copenhagen, people suddenly become desperate and start looking to take advantage of this market busy period. You can look on the internet in apartment search portals. In the search process also be aware that people will try to scam and so stay away from frauds by following these tips:
Get to know the market and understand if an offer is true or not. Amass information of any landlord coming into offer you place to stay during your holiday. You can get info through Facebook groups, do some random expat group checking, and check their profiles, if their profile is new or just a few weeks old, do you see some red flags?
Bear in mind, that you must not rent any apartments for long-term without the essential CPR registration. There are possibilities that something may be fishy and it is best you stay safe.
Avoid making cash payments or even transfers of money through Western Union. Never do any payments or release payments before seeing the first contract.
You need not search the apartments; instead make everyone search for you. You can put it on the social network and keep a watch. These apartments mostly re available mainly are through word of mouth. In case you are fortunate and are aware of someone staying or visited recently Copenhagen, keep your eyes open on the social site so that you can use this opportunity and seek help. You can ask anyone whom you may have met recently or during your last visit to some other place and have never spoken after that to them. There is nothing to lose and if they know something you gain.
In case you are not a very friendly person, yet are active in social site, make use of the hobby Facebook groups or forums and you can also hire a relocation agency to assist you in finding the search. It is worth the time spent.
