What is AccoAbroad & how does it works?
Accoabroad is an accommodation search and booking platform targeted mainly towards students travelling abroad to study in Ireland & UK. We have local partnerships in student housing companies, rental agencies and allied service providers to simplify your entire relocation process. While our primary customer base is students and most of our properties are located close to universities, we cater to non-students as well. So if you are looking for short to long term accommodation please drop us a message and we will guide you. Some properties are restricted only for students. All our listings are genuine and are verified.
Does Accoabroad charge any service fee and how much?
We work with two major kinds of listings. For some listings specially student residences, where we have partnered with accommodation providers, we charge no or very nominal service fees. For other verified listings we charge a nominal service fee to run our portal. This service fee sometimes also includes the service fees charged by property owners or agents. It is very difficult to provide exact service fees details before looking at the period and availability of the property. Hence we clearly inform you the service fees only after receiving your specific enquiry and ensure all fees is communicated to you before we accept a reservation. There are no hidden fees which are charged once we sign and send you a contract.
Is service fees same for all properties?
Service Fees is based on a variety of factors such as lease period, city, agent, property owner etc. Hence it is different for all properties and bookings.
Are there any Transaction charges while paying to confirm a reservation?
Yes. Transaction charged is based on the charges applied by the Payment Gateway which you use to pay for confirming your reservation. It also depends on the payment method. The charges are informed to you before you proceed with the payment.
What happens to the Security Deposit paid for most of the bookings?
The security deposit collected is transferred to the Housing Company / Provider or Landlord. Accoabroad does not take any responsibility or is not liable in any way for refund of the same. You should ask the refund directly with the landlord / accommodation provider when you vacate the room at the end of your lease term. The amount refunded is based on the specific policies of the house / room. In case you receive a reduced security deposit you must try to sort out directly. You can get in touch with us and we will try or best to talk to our agents and partners to resolve any differences. But we are in no way liable for the same.
