YOUR NEW HOME
Finding accommodation for your internship abroad is too often associated with being too difficult, too expensive and too time-consuming. Luckily, it doesn’t have to be this way and FlatClub offers entire flats and rooms in many major cities in the world. From London to Zurich and New York, our thousands of hosts have many affordable flats and rooms for medium-term stays.
Not familiar with the city? We’ve written over a dozen relocation guides with detailed information on city-specific advice so you can master every challenge that may come your way in your new home.
HOW TO FIND YOUR INTERNSHIP ACCOMMODATION
Your best option is to start looking as soon as possible. When you receive your internship offer, do your research and look for a flat or a room. Once you know your monthly budget for accommodation and your office location, put that into our clever search window. For your convenience, you can even filter by commute distance to your office! Before you send a booking request, make you read the description of the flat, the reviews and of course the bio of the host to get a full understand of the listing. This might after all be your new home for the next few months.
Get in touch with the host, tell them about your needs and requirements and ask them about their house rules and whatever is necessary for you to know to feel at home. Don't forget to have a look at the amenities of the listing. Does it offer wifi? Do you need a washing machine and dryer? Do you want to spend a little extra for a dish washer?
LIVING ON AN INTERNSHIP BUDGET
Wherever in the world you move to, it is most likely that rent is going to take the lion’s share of your salary every month. Do some research which parts of the city are the most affordable while still being safe to live in. Our Relocation Guides can help you with that in over eighteen cities in the world! Think about whether you want to live closer to your work or further away to get more physical as well as emotional distance.
What to take into consideration when looking for accommodation
- what’s my budget?
- do I want an entire flat or a single room?
- which areas are trendy?
- which areas have a high percentage of young professionals and students
- do I want to live close to work and reduce my commute or do I need distance to relax?
- do I have friends who live in certain neighbourhoods?
Whether you’re using FlatClub to find your room and board or just read a few of our helpful tips, we hope you have an amazing stay during your internship abroad!
