RFT was super helpful and responsive at every stage. The fact I've been able to contact them directly with questions has been really great. The whole process is super straightforward.

Frequently asked questions
How quickly will my room be booked?
That depends on the price of the room and its location. On average it takes about 2 weeks, although the most affordable rooms tend to go in just a few days.
What do I need to provide?
The room listed must be private and furnished, with access to a bathroom and kitchen. Optional extras include living room access, beddings and a private bathroom.
What's the purpose of the house visit?
We look out for major health & safety risks that would make a home unfit for hosting. It's also an opportunity for us to get to know you and understand your house rules and living preferences.
Can I rent a shared room?
No, although occasionally you may get a booking request from a couple. If you agree, you can then amend your price accordingly.
