If you travel every now again you’ve probably heard about service called Airbnb, if not I will briefly explain to you what it is. Airbnb it’s a website/service, where you can rent your room, bed or house if you are traveling. On the other hand, you can rent out your property if you want to earn some extra money. I’ve used Airbnb as a traveler so I’ll go through the benefits that it has over traditional hotel.
You get to know local;
When you rent a hotel room, it always feels bit cold and un-personal, especially if you travel to a new country that you have never been before. It always makes you feel like a stranger (which you are, but no one wants to feel like that). When you rent a room in a house with a local person, you get to know them. On several occasions, I have been showed around the city by the owner of the house, which makes you feel welcomed to the city that you are visiting.
You can cook at home;
When you’re staying at the hotel, you always have to eat out, whether you want or not. With Airbnb you stay in a real home that people live in, not just sleep, so there’s most times likely going to be kitchen that you can use. Sometimes the owner even leaves you some basic ingredients, so you don’t have to buy every single thing.
Yes, it’s cheaper, and quite a lot cheaper. When you rent a hotel room, you always end up paying quite a bit of money, but when getting room form Airbnb, you end up saving quite lot of money. Especially if you are a big family renting more than just one hotel room it’s quite expensive. When getting Airbnb, you can get entire house for the same price as a hotel room, don’t ask me why is it cheaper, it just is
