How to find very quick a room to rent


We are a nice married couple who is moving to Stevenage Thursday, on 20 February. We should have moved in with a friend of ours, our godfather, who is living now in Letchworth, but he started travelling without telling us, and now, two days before the trip, we don't have a place to stay. Strange and unpleasant :(

But, we have to move on, so please, can you give us some advice? Should we go from day one to an agency or the best way is to search online?

Which is the simplest way to find accommodation? We don't have a lot of money so we thought that we can rent a motel/ hotel room for a day or two, until we find a nice room to rent.

Thank you! A lot!

You could look at staying in a hotel for a while till you find somewhere to rent, but even the cheapest of hotels will cost quite a bit if you end up staying there a while. Do you have money for rent in advance and a deposit? If you are looking to find somewhere to rent long term you are going to need this, and maybe even agency fees, fees for credit checks etc if you use a commercial agency.

I would urge you not to contemplate coming if you don't have enough money to fund yourselves for some considerable time. Do you have jobs to go to? Will your savings have to keep you till you get jobs?

If you don't have enough money to support yourselves, you could find you are in a very difficult situation, so maybe the best thing to do would be to stay where you are until you have something definate sorted out.

Hi Gabriela,

The TripAdvisor forum discussions are limited to travel-related exchanges, so we generally close topics regarding relocation or real estate, unless the questions are also relevant to travelers to the area. As the Stevenage forum does not receive a lot of traffic from our members, I am not sure you will receive much advice, even should we leave this topic open for you.

I'd recommend starting with an online search (google.com) for key words "Stevenage UK rental property", or Stevenage UK apartment rentals"; for example these were the first items retrieved when I performed a search:




Other members living in the UK may be able to supply links or contact info for local resources. Good luck with your search.

Kind regards,
