Airbnb – So Much Better Than Using a Hotel When You Travel!
There are so many options available today when it comes to planning your hotel accommodations. For instance you can choose a hotel, motel, resort, bed and breakfast and so on. When you travel to large cities or when there is an event taking place in an area, many hotels want to charge high prices to stay in boring, drab rooms without any of the comforts of home. The next time you travel you may want to consider an alternative option to using a hotel.
Airbnb is one of the best affordable options for many travelers today. Airbnb is a community based marketplace where local people with rooms to rent are linked with travelers looking for comfortable and inexpensive places to stay. Many of the accommodations listed at Airbnb are from people who own second vacation homes or rooms where the owner is usually away.
The types of accommodations listed suit the needs of travelers with budget tastes as well as those seeking luxury high-rise apartments. Currently there is listing for an apartment in New York for $100 a night. Considering that most hotels charge $220 a night or more this could be considered a bargain. There are rooms available in just about every country or city, which is of great benefit to travelers who may be visiting out-of-the way areas where there are not a lot of hotels nearby.
The transaction process to reserve accommodations is done in a secure manner that protects both the host and traveler. You may want to consider the following benefits to using this service when you make your next travel accommodations:
- Rent unique accommodations such as a castle, sailboat or beachfront villa
- More Airbnb Amenities available to guests such as access to a full kitchen and/or washer dryer and more
- Most rooms are less expensive than what you pay for a regular hotel
- Safe transactions between hosts and guests
- A rating system that rates the owner as well as the guest
- Visitors have access to the owner who is usually knowledgeable about the area nearby
Can you imagine vacationing in some of the most expensive cities in the world or to an island destination in the Caribbean and paying pennies on the dollar to rent a room? Can you imagine going on vacation and having direct access to someone who knows the ins-and-outs of a city you are visiting and can advise you on what to see and do? Can you imagine traveling to a place and having access to a kitchen with Airbnb Amenities so that you don’t have the expense of eating out for all of your meals?
