FIND­ING AC­COM­MO­DA­TION

CLEO (Malaysia) - - @PLAY -

Use any con­tacts you may have in the coun­try to put the feel­ers out for rooms. “Join­ing a lo­cal ex­pat fo­rum along with any groups on sites like Face­book or In­ter­na­tion­als.org will help,” says Ge­orge Eves from ex­pat­in­fodesk.com. “This might be help­ful if you’re mov­ing some­where and you don’t speak the lan­guage.” Check out pri­vate ads on sites like gumtree.com and craigslist.org, or flat­mate finder sites like the UK’s spare­room.co.uk, roomshare.jp/en in Ja­pan and ca.easyroom­mate.com in Canada. “Be­fore you ar­rive, re­search the lo­cal ‘rules’ on rent­ing in the coun­try such as de­posits, cur­rency and how bills get paid,” says Eves.
