Renting an office most anywhere in the world can be an expensive commitment. Often on trips longer than a few days (or just pandemics in general) you need a quiet place to work outside of your home or rental accommodation. Regus Spaces is a service that let’s you rent temporary space in over 3,300 locations worldwide with agreements as short as one month. Here’s how it works.

Regus Rentals

Regus is a company with a network of 3300 work spaces worldwide and includes other brands like Spaces, which is focused on temporary or short-term rentals. There are a number of options using Spaces but it basically breaks down into two basic categories: time and type.

The first general option with a Spaces subscription is the duration. You sign up for a monthly or year subscription (discounts if you do the latter) and can cancel with one month’s notice. If you only need temporary office space for a month, simply cancel the day you sign up. Options to rent are 5, 10, or unlimited days in a month with some restrictions. Most notably the days of the week (business days only) and hours (typically from 9am-5pm). Otherwise you’re free to use your office days as you please and can book at any of the 3,300 locations the day before.

The second option is type.

  • Lounge Access – Similar to an airport lounge, this levels gives you access to Regus business lounges. These are open spaces with free high-speed (I’ve tested, it’s fast) wifi and common facilities like a printer, scanner, and photocopier.
  • Co-Working Option – Includes all the Lounge Perks but guarantees you a desk with rates (varying worldwide) starting at a little over $100.
  • Private Office – Gives you a dedicated private office space, including access to all of the perks and spaces in the other plan types.

The private office option usually runs about double the price of a co-working monthly membership.

Not Renting A Single Space

It’s important to note that in all of these Spaces plans you’re not renting a single co-working desk or private office in say, Berlin. Your subscription gives you access to all of the 3,300 Regus locations. Working one day in Berlin then flying to London for a business trip? You can split your days in between them or simply try a new office across town from another Regus location.

Every office has a different design, some are open plans with large windows while others are more traditional four walls and a desk. You can visit any of the locations as a member or set one up to see what nearby options are before you sign up. Take a look in my video here of a look inside a Regus/Space temporary office. For those of you who travel frequently or simply need a quiet place to get some work done outside of the house or hotel, Spaces has a number of flexible places in a location that might be close to you.
