There is no standard percentage when it comes to housing allowances. I suggest you establish how much you are likely to need for rent and then work from that figure.

The figures will vary hugely depending on the company, position and salary. Many companies prefer to pay allowances instead of salary as it saves them money on paying gratuities.
