What is Airbnb?
Airbnb is essentially a platform that allows people to rent out sofas, spare rooms, or entire properties as holiday rentals from other members directly, rather than through an agency. Most people focus on short-term holiday/tourist lets, but the sheer scale of Airbnb these days means it covers pretty much anything you can think of.
If you’re looking for a place to stay in a location that’s a bit off the beaten track, or want to stay in a particular neighbourhood, Airbnb can make the process a lot simpler than it otherwise might be.
Airbnb is also great for finding an affordable place to stay during big conventions/sports events/etc, when hotels are busy and expensive (indeed that was the original concept behind the company).
I haven’t tried out any of the experiences advertised on Airbnb yet, so please share your thoughts on that side of things in the comments if you have.
I love hotels, but sometimes having a whole apartment/house/boat/villa is a much better option. Being able to go to just one site and flick through a large range of different options, particularly in markets where there aren’t many hotels, is fantastic.
Over the last few years I’ve rented quite a lot of places (20+) through Airbnb all over the world and have had very positive experiences overall. It’s not perfect and certainly isn’t always the best option, but it is a useful extra string to the bow of the savvy traveller.
