Opportunities for international travel are quickly becoming available once more and those who have had the opportunity to shift to remote working options may certainly look to take advantage of a more digital nomad lifestyle that allows all of the perks of travelling and exploring whilst also sticking to a familiar job – many of the most popular locations have seen huge numbers tick upwards lately including this bali city guide available from digitalnomads.world, but if exploring is on the cards, a place to stay will be needed – what should be kept in mind whilst renting abroad, and what easy to miss things should be avoided?
Check the connection before the stay – It has become more common for digital nomads to stick to longer term stays at Airbnb’s or shared accommodation, and whilst relying on public internet connection is a big part of the experience, having somewhere reliable to work from is just as important too – checking out the connection and ensuring that the speed is suitable for the work being done and that it isn’t temperamental going up and down at any sign of stress will ensure a smooth experience, particularly if there will be others sharing the accommodation too where there may be a higher likelihood of stress on the network.
Have an amenities checklist – Travelling whilst working doesn’t mean that the living abroad part of the equation can’t be done in comfort, and if looking for a long term place to rent then it’s also important to ensure that it has all the amenities that will make living easy and exciting too – basics like washers and dryers, or easy access to local spots like gyms or entertainment options will make the trip that much easier – with bigger cities being a popular destination, many of these amenities are always accessible, but checking ahead of time can save a nasty surprise later on.
A responsive host is a helpful host – If any problems pop up, it’s also important to ensure that they can be dealt with quickly and without delay too and getting in contact with the potential host early and ensuring they’re quick and responsive too can ensure any stay runs hassle free – whilst this may only be true for Airbnb’s and other similar services rather than hotels or a more permanent rent solution but may also ring true for these other options too. Fortunately, the many digital nomads who have come before will be able to provide plenty of options for locations that are great to stay at and remove much of the guessing work.
Accommodation is such an important part of the stay and getting it right the first time is essential, it’ll prevent unneeded stress and ensure every other aspect of any remote working option is just what it needs to be.
