NIC FAQs

Want to learn more about the badge and the club? Then let's dive in!

Was ist das Nomad-Verified-Abzeichen?

The badge is awarded by members of our "Nomad Inspectors Club", which is made up of influencers and digital nomad experts.

These Nomad Inspectors check listings on Flatio to determine if they meet the minimum requirements to be considered remote work-friendly, including:

  • Fast and reliable Wi-Fi connection
  • Proper workspace
  • Space for exercise and meditation
Where is the Nomad-Verified badge displayed?
It's displayed on the listing page of the “Nomad-Verified” property.
Why do you partner with digital nomad and travel influencers as Nomad Inspectors?
Digital nomads are Flatio's main target group and currently make up about half of our tenants. That's why we partner with influencers who are intimately familiar with the digital nomad lifestyle and the unique needs of tenants who work remotely.
What are the advantages of the "Nomad-Verified" badge for digital nomads?
It helps digital nomads looking to rent through Flatio make an informed decision and choose an accommodation that meets all their remote work requirements and other unique lifestyle needs, such as a place to meditate or exercise.
What are the advantages of the "Nomad-Verified" badge for landlords?

Their properties will be highlighted as one of our “Nomad-Verified” listings, which means more potential leads and tenants for them.

In addition, their accommodation will receive more promotion and visibility than other listings because the “Nomad Inspector” staying at their property will create a series of photo and video content about their experience.

This content is shared on the social media accounts of Flatio and the "Nomad Inspector". All created content will be available on the listing until the badge is valid.

All of this helps them gain the trust of more digital nomads—who tend to be professional, well-paying tenants—spend less time answering questions from potential tenants before they move in, and run a more efficient rental business.

What kind of content do the "Nomad Inspectors" need to create and publish?

We require "Nomad Inspectors" to create and publish at least the following content on their social media:

  • A 1-minute video about the property and their experience with a mention of the “Nomad Inspectors Club” and how Flatio arranged their stay
  • A video walkthrough of the property
  • Photos and videos of the property and its surroundings, depending on which platform the “Nomad Inspector” uses the most (tagging Flatio and using the #myflatioroutine)
What are the minimum requirements to join the Nomad Inspectors Club?

A minimum of 10k followers/subscribers across Instagram, TikTok, or YouTube OR a blog/website/podcast with 40k monthly users.

Note: Despite this minimum requirement, all applications will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. For example, if you only have 8k followers/subscribers on social media platforms, but an incredible talent for content creation and a very engaged community, we'll definitely consider your application.

What do Nomad Inspectors receive in return for inspecting a property?

We treat "Nomad Inspectors" as special tenants invited by Flatio to inspect various listings as part of our partnership with them. So their stay is on us. This means they can explore new places or rediscover the places they've already been to without having to pay rent.

Members of the club will receive a 20% discount on the service fee when booking accommodation through Flatio in the future for their personal use (not as part of the partnership).

In addition, the visibility this partnership brings to "Nomad Inspectors" has the potential to bring them new visitors, users, customers, readers, business partners, etc.

How long will a Nomad Inspector stay at a property?
The minimum length of stay is 3 nights, and landlords can set their own maximum length of stay.
What are the minimum requirements for a property to be considered Nomad-Verified?

1- A “stable” Wi-Fi connection with a minimum download speed of 30 Mbps and a minimum upload speed of 5 Mbps.

Notes:

  • This is the “real” Wi-Fi speed, not the one in the landlord’s contract with the service provider. Inspectors can check the "real" Wi-Fi speed on speedtest.net.
  • A minimum download speed of 30 Mbps and a minimum upload speed of 5 Mbps is usually sufficient for use by 1-2 people. We recommend that landlords set up an even faster Wi-Fi connection to make their property suitable for digital nomad families as well.
  • It’s advisable to measure the "real" Wi-Fi speed in the areas of the rental unit where digital nomads are supposed to work. If the router is far away from their workspace, for example, the Internet speed and quality can drop significantly.
  • "Nomad Inspectors" are encouraged to mention Wi-Fi speed in the content they create.

2- A dedicated workspace inside the rental unit (with a quality desk and office chair, enough space to work, good lighting, and a low noise level for concentrated work)

3- A spot for workout and meditation inside or outside the flat

4- Easy access to public transportation and places popular with digital nomads (such as co-working spaces, cafes, gyms, and beaches)

How does the whole process work?
  • You apply to join our “Nomad Inspectors Club”.
  • We'll put you in touch with a landlord who has requested an inspection of their property to possibly receive the "Nomad Verified" badge.
  • After the arrangements have been made, you stay at their property and carefully check if it meets all the requirements to be considered "Nomad-Verified".
  • You inform us about the result.
  • If you classify the property as "Nomad-Verified", we add the corresponding badge to the listing.

Note: Flatio and the "Nomad Inspector" will post the created content on social media to promote the inspected property even if it’s not considered "Nomad-Verified". This is our way of thanking the landlord for hosting the "Nomad Inspector".

How can I apply to join the Nomad Inspectors Club?
All you have to do is fill out the application form. Then we'll contact you and discuss the next steps with you.
How many properties can I apply to inspect every year?
Currently, there is no limit to the number of properties you can apply to inspect as long as we both feel this partnership is mutually beneficial.
What is the minimum number of properties I must apply to inspect under this partnership?
You're required to inspect at least one property every 24 months. Otherwise, unfortunately, we'll have to cancel your membership in the club. After that you'll not be able to re-apply to join the club for six months.
Can landlords apply for the Nomad-Verified badge for both private rooms and entire properties?
Yes. Both landlords who rent out an entire property (house, villa, flat, bungalow, etc.) and those who rent out a private room can apply for this badge.
How long is the Nomad-Verified badge valid for?
18 months. After the badge expires, the landlord can apply again to have their property inspected and potentially verified again.
What can landlords do if they don't get the badge the first time?

Landlords should take into account the feedback from the "Nomad Inspector" who inspected their accommodation and improve the condition of the property (in terms of Wi-Fi and/or physical space) so that it meets the minimum requirements for remote work.

After they have made the improvements, they can apply again to have their property inspected and potentially verified.

We believe this is a great opportunity for you as a digital nomad or influencer to travel the world through complimentary stays while making a positive contribution to the remote working community.
