HousingAnywhere partners up with Expatrio to make moving to Germany easier

Rotterdam, August 3, 2020 – Housing platform HousingAnywhere is excited to announce its partnership with Expatrio, the relocation platform specialized in helping international students and young professionals looking to move to Germany. Starting July 20th, all German listings from HousingAnywhere will be integrated on Expatrio. Users will be able to browse apartments, studios, and rooms anywhere in Germany, and will be able to easily book the accommodation on HousingAnywhere. Thanks to the integration, users will have one single place where they can organize their new stage of life in Germany including finding a new home. Djordy Seelmann, CEO of HousingAnywhere

This partnership is a perfect fit as it solves one of the main pains of anyone moving abroad: navigating the fragmented and intransparent process of required paperwork, and finding a place to live. Expatrio’s customers can now easily browse any available accommodation on HousingAnywhere and get the full service when they book on our platform. We ensure customers can book safely thanks to our secure booking process, which ensures that the booked accommodation meets the expectations of the tenant. Above all, we provide easy rental payments thanks to HousingAnywhere Payments, which allows tenants to pay all their rental expenses online with their own preferred payment method. By joining forces with Expatrio and integrating all our properties on their platform, we’re able to provide a better experience that removes much of the friction that comes with moving abroad.

Expatrio, a relocation platform based in Berlin, offers an all-in service which includes help with German visa essentials like opening a blocked account and getting health insurance. The final frontier students and young professionals face when moving to Germany is accommodation. Tim Meyer, Expatrio’s Managing Director:

Our aim is to accompany our customers throughout their entire journey to and within Germany by providing all they need in a single place. One of the biggest blockers we weren’t able to provide up until now was helping to find a new place to live in. We are glad that our users will now have the biggest selection of accommodation to choose from, as HousingAnywhere is the market leader in Germany. We’re also very happy that HousingAnywhere shares our focus on customer service and innovation. Our partnership with HousingAnywhere will make the lives of our users much easier and will allow us to continue offering the best customer experience.
