People all over the UK are ditching overcrowded coffee shops, their own homes and bland corporate offices for their ideal workspace.

Why not join them?

Office and studio rental rates in the UK are some of the highest in the world - why not try an inspiring, friendlier option?

The way people work is rapidly changing - more people than ever are now ‘mobile’ workers without a fixed office - constantly on the go, fitting in work, meetings and activities from wherever they are - from coffee shops, to temporary offices and even hotel lobbies.

People are tired of business as usual - they are looking for something new - Vrumi is a revolutionary new sharing economy service that allows you to rent space directly from your fellow neighbour.

Vrumi lets you adapt to your schedule - by booking space in other people’s homes across the UK during the day for meetings and other activities.

So if you’re looking for a comfortable space to work, meet and create - book a Vrumi space.

Frequently Asked Questions


What is Vrumi?

Vrumi is an online platform that opens up homes for workspace. We connect those businesses large and small that are searching for space with householders that have unused space during the day.

What kind of spaces do you have available?

People’s homes! Spaces on Vrumi vary from sitting rooms and kitchen tables to work sheds and house boats.

What cities and countries is it available in?

Vrumi is now launched and live nationwide across the UK. We have plans to launch globally in the near future - tell us where we should go next!

Do I have to sign up to a monthly contract?

Nope. We’re big fans of flexible working. You pay per day meaning no lengthy contracts.

Is it complicated? How do I use Vrumi in a nutshell?

Vrumi is really simple to use:

1) Search for a space by location. You can also refine by price, dates, capacity and privacy level.

2) Enquire to a few different hosts - some hosts are faster at responding than others, so if you’re making an urgent booking we recommend you enquire to around 5 spaces to find a space that fits your style and avoid disappointment.

3) Send a booking request, and if successful, pay for your space and get to work!

Can I use the rooms for any purpose?

Guests use Vrumi for all sorts of reasons be it meetings, writing, creating, fitness, therapy and any other type of work. We have a zero tolerance policy to illegal activities, and any activities which the host did not agree to.

Can I stay overnight?

No. Vrumi is a daytime rental service.

What hours are the spaces available?

The available hours are listed on each individual property page - but many hosts are flexible and are willing to shorten or extend the set hours if you ask.

Can I negotiate on price?

You can try and check with the host if you’ve got a good reason. For example, they may consider reducing the cost for the day if you make a commitment to use the space for several days.

How do I get in and out of the property?

This depends a lot on how you arrange it with your host in advance. Most hosts either have a key lock or arrange to let you in. Always check this with your host before the booking.

Will there be anyone else present at the space?

Our spaces can be filtered by privacy level. Low privacy typically means you’ll be sharing a space, medium means that there’ll be someone in the property but not the space you’re using, and high privacy typically means that you’ll have the whole property to yourself.

Can I book the space for a few days every week?

Yes, many hosts are very happy to take regular bookings.

How can I pay for my bookings?

We accept Visa, Mastercard and American Express.

When is the money for a booking deducted from my bank account?

Once a host has accepted your booking, you’ll be invited to pay by debit or credit card and that is when payment is deducted.

Can I cancel a booking?

Of course, but cancellations can significantly impact the other person involved, so please keep this in mind.

A guest may cancel a booking if the host agrees to it and receive a refund for the cost of the space, however, guests will not receive a refund of the guest fee amount.

How much commission does Vrumi charge?

We charge between 5-15% depending on your Vrumi use.

Where do I find details of my booking/space location?

You’ll find all these details under the bookings and enquiries tab, we’ll also email you these details once a booking has been confirmed.

What do I do if there is a problem on the day of my booking?

Communicate with your host on the first stage of the problem - you will have access to their contact details upon booking confirmation. If the issue persists, email us at help@vrumi.com and we’ll make sure it’s dealt with as quickly and efficiently as possible.

How do I leave a review?

Soon after your booking is completed, we will send you a ‘Feedback’ email to remind you - just hit the special link or log in to your account to to rate your experience. It shouldn’t take longer than 2 minutes to complete.

Trust is practically a currency in today’s sharing economy, so the more reviews you leave for others and they leave for you - the better for everyone.
