Weekday lodgings are increasingly popular with people working away from home or as an alternative to a lengthy commute. Here are the current Monday to Friday listings.
Usually the room is taken for four nights a week, Monday to Thursday, but there are many variations. These include:
- A room for three nights a week, Monday to Wednesday, where people work at home on Fridays.
- A different two or three night a week combination.
- Sometimes tenants pay for a weekday room but only use it for (say) ten nights a month because they travel extensively as well as working away from home, but like to have a base in the place they stay most frequently.
Overseas commuting is the most extreme form of commuting where the worker lives in one country and travels to another for work, often staying in a hotel. Overseas commuters may be weekly commuters but there are many different working arrangements. These include:
- Working one week abroad, the next week from home.
- Working one week a month abroad, working from home the remainder of the time.
- Work ten days abroad and returning home for four days, which translates to nine nights continuous (often Tuesday night to a week on Wednesday night) and then five nights at home. This isn’t strictly Monday to Friday, but this arrangement can be very attractive to some landlords and lodgers.
