Why can you accomplish a world of diversity?
Dorothy said it best: There’s no place like home. Especially abroad, where everything is different. Let’s face it—finding housing is enough of a hassle back home; the idea of having to search for accommodation abroad has every right to fill a student with more dread than any calculus exam could ever do. I mean, who wants to worry about long-term contracts, lease agreements, deposits, landlords, roommates, and housing conditions—in a country you have never even been to? No one wants to stress about international bank transfers and lease guarantees when they are still trying to figure out currency conversions and new ABC’s.
Luckily, you’re not the first frustrated, nervous traveler trying to figure out how to find housing abroad. Other people have been in the same shoes, decided it really sucks, and came up with all sorts of easy-to-use alternatives, so that you can dedicate more time and energy to worrying about packing lists and last-minute to-do-at-home-things, rather than being homeless. Now, with a few clicks of a button, the travel accommodations of your choice can be waiting for you at the end of a yellow brick road.
