What are the main differences between the platforms?

HousingAnywhere is the global online booking platform for accommodation. Since it works in a different way than Stanzazoo, we have prepared some key points that will help you navigate our user-friendly platform.

Is HousingAnywhere for free?

It’s totally free to search for a place on HousingAnywhere, use our features, and communicate with advertisers – the main difference here is that you’ll only pay if you find your new home through our platform. We charge a small, one-off fee equal to 25% of one month’s rent (minimum of €150 and capped at €250) when you make a successful booking. Find out how the HousingAnywhere platform works here.

Can I visit the accommodation before booking?

The platform was created for internationals, by internationals. When you do find a place you like, please keep in mind that we do not allow in-person viewings. This means that no one is disadvantaged based on where they live. In order to protect you, we have our secure payment system in place which ensures you get what you booked. For more information about this, please click here.

Can I set an advertisement to find a roommate?

Please note that it is not possible to find other roommates via HousingAnywhere. If you would like to find someone to sublet your accommodation when moving abroad to avoid losing your place and double rent you can advertise your property(with your landlord’s permission, of course). Find out how to do so here.

How can I contact the advertisers?

We value your online safety and therefore protecting our users' safety and ensuring that they do not fall victim to scams is one of HousingAnywhere's priorities. This is why, until a booking has been made, it is not permitted to share contact information such as email addresses, phone numbers, Skype names, Facebook links, etc. Upon completion of the booking, the contact details will be shared with you. Find out more information about this here.

If you have found the place that you want, you can contact an advertiser by clicking on the purple "Contact Advertiser" button which can be found on the advertiser's profile on the listing you are interested in. Write a message to introduce yourself and show your interest in the accommodation and submit. Through our platform, you can discuss the rental period, deposits, etc. directly with the advertiser via our secure, real-time messaging service.
