London citizen sublet property during the Olympic Games 2012

London is preparing itself for the Olympics that are being held from 27th of Juli till the 12th of August. Because of the incredible amount of visitors London will get, it’s tremendously difficult to find a nice flat or property to rent. However most of the English people are complaining, some of them can’t wait to pack their bags, sublet their flat or room and leave London for a month.
The Olympic Games are being held in UK’s capital city this summer. Although, London has been host of the Olympic Games twice before, in 1908 and 1948, this year will be remarkably spectacular. Restaurants, bars, hotels and hostels are getting ready for the main event. Obviously, for the UK sport fans this year is the moment they have been waiting for their entire lives. Believe it or not, but not every citizen of London is as enthusiastic as the main stream. There are inhabitants who are subletting their property and moving away from London for a couple of weeks. “I’m not into sports and I’m sure London will be overcrowded. So instead of staying here and getting irritated, I sublet my flat and go on a short holiday myself!” is what they say.
Finding a nice hotel room, hostel or flat in London is extremely hard at the moment. Besides looking at hotel sites, I would recommend trying to find the actual inhabitants who want to leave London. The funny thing is, it is actually really easy to find them as many of them are “complaining” about the Olympics on Twitter. They tweet about not being able to wait to leave London and offer their property for sublet. This is an example of such a tweet: “Booked tickets to leave London the day the Olympics start and come back when they finish…Don’t think of robbing me though. Will sublet ”
All in all, are you going to the Olympic Games in London this summer and you didn’t find a property to stay yet, just go to Twitter. Type in keywords in the bar saying “leave London Olympics” and you will find any tweet that include those words. Good luck and enjoy!
