TRL 089: Flatio – The Best Place to Find a Home as a Digital Nomad with Radim Rezek
Today on the podcast I am joined by Radim Rezek, the founder and CEO of Flatio a mid-term rental platform based in Europe that is making finding a place to live as a digital nomad easier and more affordable. Unlike Airbnb, Flatio specializes in mid-term rentals which are apartment rentals longer than 2 weeks, but less than 1 year. And because Flatio is designed with professionals and digital nomads in mind their listings highlight things like the availability of a kitchen, washer, and also quality of WiFi.
As someone who normally travels for the majority of the year, I have personally experienced how difficult it can be to find good apartments at a good price so I was very excited to talk with Radim about his experience building Flatio, how they are developing the platform to make it especially great for digital nomads, and what we as a community can expect from Flatio in the future.
