Providing a guarantor is complicated for international students because landlords usually ask for French guarantors. We make it easier for you: here is what you need to know to find a guarantor for you stay in France 😊
Three things to keep in mind
01 In France, guarantors* are required if you are on a low income and wish to rent accommodation. If you are a student, there is a strong chance that you will fit into this category.
02 If you are looking for a guarantor, we strongly advise you to go through Garantme. You can also apply to VISALE, a rental deposit managed by “Action Logement”, a public organisation.
03 You can manage all your administrative procedures, including the application for a guarantor, on our Welcome Desk. Search for accommodation, home insurance, internet box, mobile phone package, bank account… everything is easily done through the Welcome Desk.
* The guarantor is the person who undertakes to pay the rent on your behalf in you fail to do it yourself.
