Searching for a place you are happy to rest your head is often one of the first things we do before arriving in another country. We all want somewhere we will feel comfortable, that’s ideally located with all our living essentials to hand. That’s why it is so important to get this first step right when relocating employees, but hotels are not the always the best option and are rarely economical. In this blog, we will illustrate a few reasons to consider using temporary accommodation as a solution to finding that all important base to begin your new life.
A significant advantage of temporary accommodation has a fully furnished home base to escape to after the hustle and bustle of starting a new job role. Having your own private space can be a comfortable retreat and provide more stability when settling into a new area. While hotel rooms are often the go-to for stopovers, there is nothing like having your place.
Short term rental properties provide security and peace of mind during the relocation process; the certainty of having accommodation in place before leaving your home country can be a great stress relief. Especially for long term relocation, instead of rushing to put your house on the market and relying on real estate photos to find a new home in time for your start date, you can carefully search for a new place or wait for the right house to be available.
Much more than a hotel room, temporary accommodation provides more amenities to add comfort to a short stay. For example, serviced apartments offer facilities such as a fully equipped kitchen and laundry essentials, extra rooms for more space, especially when travelling with a partner or family, as well as cleaning and maintenance services. Having these services available makes for a more practical solution for the interim.
Unlike hotel rooms, the amenities temporary accommodation offer can be tailored to the specific criteria of each relocation. Whether you are relocating with your family, need to be located near useful commuting links or looking for a pet-friendly apartment, the amenities are customisable to fit the requirements of even the most discerning individual.
A significant advantage of using temporary accommodation as a stop-gap before renting or even buying a residence is the ability to experience a lifestyle before things become more permanent. You can spend time discovering if an area offers a welcoming environment and perhaps a thriving expat community or avoid being stuck with a two-hour commute. Being placed in an area, temporarily, allows you to assess the atmosphere and learn the pros and cons before you commit to putting down roots.
