If you're new to remote work, check out our guide to remote working. But one crucial thing to keep in mind; there's remote workers who work from their homes, and there are location-independent workers who travel the world. You'll hear the term "remote worker" thrown around for them.

If you fall into the latter category, finding remote-friendly short-term rentals is actually more of a lift than you'd think. Because you don't want to overpay for a hotel, but you also don't want to be stuck in a bungalow with cockroaches and some blinding bare white lightlbulb hanging over your bed as your only source of light (speaking from experience here lads).

A lot of times remote workers think AirBnb is their only option to find nomad-friendly accommodations when they're travel. And while it’s definitely a short term rental option – and a good one at that – it’s by no means your only option.

Here are 30+ websites where you'll find short term rental housing that's remote-friendly, in no particular order. Each option also has a "why you would use it" section, which breaks down in what situation using this service would make sense for you.

                Quick Overview Of HomeToGo For Remote workers

                What are local realtors?

                For many places in the world, 1 – 3 month leases aren’t uncommon, and there are plenty of local real estate agents who have connections to help you find what you’re looking for.

                Now this is not the case in all markets, but for many small and mid-size remote work hotspots, there are local realtors that can help you find exactly what you’re looking for.

                Why we like local realtors

                • Local real estate agents know the area – they know the vibe of a city better than any guide you may read online. If you tell them the vibe you’re looking for, they’ll be able to tell you what area of the city to check out, and which apartment.
                • Local real estate agents may be able to help you bridge the local language gap in renting
                • They’re still less expensive than platform fees
                • There are still plenty of landlords in the world that are old school and refuse to list their properties on rental platforms. Local real estate agents can connect you to these places.

                When should remote workers use local realtors?

                • If they know what kind of area they want to live in
                • If they don't have local language skills
                • If they want to find the best deals
                • If they want to offload the work of finding a place to a professional
                • If they're planning to stay in an area for a while
                • If they're ok organizing things like wifi and utilities themselves.



                Got your place? Great. Make sure you prepare to go location independent, and that you grab a solid credit card for international travel as well.
