A new partnership between one of the world’s largest accommodation providers Airbnb and Australia’s number one dedicated rental property website Rent.com.au, is encouraging renters to ‘try before they commit’ and test drive a new neighbourhood, before signing a rental lease.

Schools, cafes, shops, sporting facilities, public transport, entertainment and the arts, will all go under the microscope, as renters ‘check in’ to new suburbs in the search for their next home.

Under the agreement, renters can now book apartments, houses, private and shared rooms and unique accommodation options with a simple click-through from the Rent.com.au website.

“We love the idea of people ‘test driving’ their new community,” said Rent.com.au CEO, Greg Bader.

“We can all look at the photos and descriptions on our website and that gives us a good idea of the property we are moving into, but it doesn’t really paint the full picture of a new community.

Rent.com.au data shows that 50 percent of all renters look to spend around $300 per week on a rental (or a minimum of $15,000 per year).

With a one-night stay via Airbnb available from under $100 a night, renters now can make more informed decisions choosing their next rental home.
