Screwing up in the past and having bad credit would make it nearly impossible to rent a home. You generally need good credit and deposit money. With a high income you could have the deposit but it won't fix your credit.

If you have a high income at least you can get into AirBnBs or hotels, because they don't do credit checks.

Many hotels (the ones I would want to stay in) require a credit card with your name on it, which is a credit check. Many accept debit cards too with your name on it, but I assume opening a bank account also involved a credit check.

If you have a high income it's pretty easy to get a secured credit card or a debit card though.

If you truely have the income paying for several months rent up front will open doors.
