How does a fixed term lease work?

Simple! You check in on the start date of the lease and you check out on the end date of the lease. Note that on the end date you must check out of the property by 11am. If you want to stay beyond your end date, you must notify Zeus immediately so we do not book someone else for those dates. If you are unsure of your end date, ask Zeus for a flexible lease.

How does a flexible lease work?

A flexible lease has no specific end date. When you want the lease to end, you give us at least 30 days notice. For example, if today was January 1, the earliest your lease could end is January 31. You can end your lease in the middle of a month if you like. Note that on the end date you must check out of the property by 11am.

What is the minimum amount of time I can rent for?

30 days.
