Services & Fees

Fees

When renting a room, our agency's fee depends on the rental amount and the length of your stay. It is charged only once at the beginning, at the latest when renting the room. There is no extra fee in case you change accommodation during the agreed rental time.

Why is there an agency fee?

ContactChile, as a private mediator organization, does not receive any subsidies from governmental or other institutions. This is why we have to finance our broad intercultural service by means of an agency fee. Not only do we choose the housing options with care, and give you a well documented written description with pictures, but we also offer you qualified and knowledgeable advice on the advantages and disadvantages of a certain place or neighborhood, on public transport and safety considerations. We act as a mediator in case of any inconvenience during your stay. The agency fee allows us to maintain the jobs of our team and to run our office in Santiago. It also covers the operational costs of our services, the maintenance of this website and other PR efforts. We will also send you a weekly newsletter via e-mail containing information about cultural, sport and touristic activities in and around Santiago.
