How do I book a room?

On the room listing(s) of your choice, select the dates of your stay and click “contact host” - we recommend that you tell the host a bit more about you and why you need a room. If the host is happy for you to book the room, they will send you a booking offer and you will have 24 hours to accept or reject the offer.

What happens once I’ve accepted a booking offer?

Please note that accepting a booking offer means you commit to booking the room. The RoomForTea team will be in touch shortly after you accept a booking offer to organise payment and you will be able to dowload the Stay Agreement in the bookings tab of your dashboard.

When do I have to pay?

Upon accepting the offer, RoomForTea requires an initial payment to secure the room. For stays of under 6 weeks, the total rent will be due. For stays of over 6 weeks, the first month of rent will be due; please refer to the the Payment Schedule in the booking offer details to find out when the next rent instalments will be due.

Am I able to book off platform with someone I met on RfT?

Booking a room with a RoomForTea host/guest off-platform is not permitted; please consult the Non-Compete/Non Solicitation clause listed in the Terms of Service for information. Please note that anyone booking off-platform will be no longer be able to use our service.
