5 Apps to Find a Coworking Space When Traveling
One of the best things about a remote job is the flexibility to work from wherever (and sometimes whenever) you want. For most remote roles, as long as you have a laptop and an internet connection, you’re able to get your work done.
But when you’re away from home in a new city that you may not be overly familiar with, it can sometimes be challenging to find a coworking space.
Luckily, there are a good number of apps and websites created for the sole purpose of helping you find a great coworking space to settle in and crank up your productivity.
Here are five good places to start if you’re looking to find a coworking space while traveling:
Outsite is a coworking service built around four main pillars: home sharing, remote work, work-life balance, and sustainability.
Home sharing has become somewhat mainstream in this age of Airbnb, and Outsite builds on that concept to customize it for professionals. It aims to connect you with like-minded people and does so in beautiful places.
The service’s locations are close to nature, so if sustainability plays a role in where you’d like to work remotely, you may want to give Outsite a look.
Think of Loop as an all-access pass to a network of great coworking spaces around the world.
A membership to the site gets you one day of free access to each space in Loop’s network each month. As it stands, the service has more than 100 spaces to choose from, meaning more than 100 places you could be working from each month.
If you happen to like a space and would like to work from there for more than one day, you have the option to buy a daily pass from that space.
A Loop membership costs $30 per month, and prices for individual day passes vary. However, the site has a promotion that gives you two months free when you purchase one month.
Many remote workers find Workfrom useful because of the information it gives you up front. The site’s listings share information such as:
- Wi-Fi speeds
- Access to power outlets
- Available seating and spaces such as coffee shops and restaurants
Another advantage the site boasts is its large number of locations—more than 1,250 cities, all scouted by real-life people. Another good thing about Workfrom? Signing up for an account is free, although there is also a “Pro” edition that costs $5 per month or $50 per year.
For many remote workers, all that’s typically necessary is a power outlet, a place to sit, and a reliable internet connection. But sometimes there are times when you aren’t working alone, and for those instances there is Breather.
Breather is a service that gives you access to professional meeting rooms and spaces, should you need to host a meeting or work collaboratively with a group. The one drawback of the service is that it currently only supports 10 markets: New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Boston, Chicago, Washington, DC, Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa, and London, but there are more on the way.
On the plus side, an account on Breather is free.
One of the best things about LiquidSpace is that it helps remote workers in all sorts of scenarios. There are opportunities for startups, seasoned pros, real estate managers, coworking space owners, building owners, office business centers, and private business owners.
The site can also help you find a variety of locations, such as a team office, a temporary space, a project space, or a satellite office. Like many apps and sites on this list, an account on LiquidSpace is free, but pricing for spaces varies by individual location.
You already thought working remotely was great because of the flexibility it offers. Now you have access to tools that will help you do so efficiently no matter what city you’re in.
