How it works
1. Upload your Apartment on the platform
My Room Abroad is an Easy-to-use platform where you can easily manage all your apartment.
Once you have signed up to the platform, you can directly UPLOAD YOUR PROPERTIES.
Don’t forget to complete your profile.
you need to:
- Select a cancellation policy
- Complete your personal information
- Complete your bank details for transfering the money.
2. Manage your apartment
Pay real close attention to KEEP THIS INFO UP TO DATE AND ACCURATE! If you upload incorrect information on the platform, it will be your responsibility to reimburse the tenants who believed the information on your listing.
By clicking on “My listing” in the drop down on the upper right corner of your screen, you will land on your apartment dashboard. On your dashboard, you can see all your properties and easily update the available date of each of your rooms.
3. Manage your booking request
Once your property is uploaded on the platform, users will be able to see and book it when browsing on My Room Abroad.
When a user request one of your properties, you will receive a notification via email.
You can then log into https://myroomabroad.com/ and see the request by clicking on “Incoming requests” in the drop down on the upper right corner of your screen.
In the “Current Booking Requests” tab, you will see all your new booking requests. For each request you will see the occupation, gender, nationality, contract dates and number of person as well as a little intro of the user willing to rent the property.
You have 48 hours to reply to the booking, if you fail to reply to the booking within 48h, the booking will be automatically cancelled (and appear in the “Past Booking Request” tab).
All the Booking Requests you accept will appear in the the “Accepted Booking Requests” Tab. All the ones that you decline will appear in the “Declined Booking Requests” tab. And if the tenant cancels his request before you had time to accept or decline it, the request will appear in the “Canceled Booking Request” Tab.
4. Accept or decline the booking
You can either accept or decline the booking you have received.
If you decline: You can propose another one of your listing to the user if you wish.
If you accept: Remember this is just as signing a contract. As soon as you accept a user’s booking request, you have to keep the room for him/her.
