Subscription plans and pricing
As of May 2021 HousingAnywhere has introduced subscription plans in the Netherlands. With the new subscription plans, you no longer have to pay a service fee (between 150 – 250 euros) with your booking but you pay one low price at the start (€26 - €68) and can enjoy unlimited messaging with landlords in The Netherlands. When ready to book, you pay just the first month’s rent to complete your booking.
Considering that most bookings are finalized within a few days, this new model will be cheaper for students.
Once you pay for a subscription, you can contact landlords to get all your questions answered. And when you’re ready, you can go ahead and book a place.

Booking a room via HousingAnywhere happens via their Secure Payment System. As a student you pay the first month rent to HousingAnywhere instead of the landlord for safe-keeping. After you arrive in your room you have a 48-hour period to check if the accommodation is as advertised. Only after this time will your money be transferred to the landlord should no issues arise.
TIP: If you arrive later than planned you should inform Housing Anywhere about this so that they can adjust the 48-hour period to the date of your arrival.
In case of questions about your booking or room you can contact HousingAnywhere directly by phone, mail chat.
