A midterm rental for traveling professionals typically refers to a rental accommodation that spans a period longer than a traditional short-term stay (e.g., a few weeks to several months) but shorter than a typical long-term lease (e.g., one year or more). It caters to individuals or professionals who require temporary housing for work-related assignments or projects away from their home base. At Easy Travel Lodging we require a stay of 30 days or more. For more info: EasyTravelLodging.com
