If you are traveling for work to a new place or country, there are certain things you need to plan such as your place of stay. With most private companies, allowing their employees a flexibility of choosing their place of residence and compensating them for that, one can have their choice of place of stay within a certain budget range.
How to choose a place to stay?
As one is unable to plan or visit different places when traveling for work, it is best to shortlist a few properties before traveling. Most metropolitan cities have fully furnished apartments for rent in Jurong; as a result, one will surely find such apartments convenient to rent for a short term. This also depends on the minimum tenure of lease that these apartments are given out for. Usually one would find rental apartments given out on lease for at least two weeks or more. This would then be the first criterion to shortlist apartments to stay in.
Flats vs. other accommodation
It is not only short term service apartment that remains an option in large cities; people can find guest houses, sublet apartments or homes and even cheap hotels to stay in. However, there are pros and cons to consider for each category of such accommodation. While hotels might have cheap rates for rooms, paying for food and laundry over a long period of time would drive up the price. Sublet accommodation or staying as a paying guest at someone’s residence would also need one to check and inspect the premises as well as ensure that all facilities are provided for a comfortable stay. On the other hand, standard serviced apartments usually have standard amenities included and are usually detailed in the online catalogs that one checks out.
Book well in advance
For one to have a smooth transition from one place to another it would be ideal to have a place to stay waiting for them when they land at the new place of work. It is therefore necessary to book a place from before; if one is not confident in agreeing to a long term lease with a serviced apartment without inspecting it first, it would be a good idea to put up at a hotel initially and then search for accommodation that would be cheaper and ideal for long term stay. One can begin their search by looking at online listings and then visiting the premises to make a physical inspection of the place. This will help to reduce one’s time and effort in finding the right place.
