Have you ever traveled the world and worried about how you will find beautiful yet affordable accommodation?
Me too! That is until I found this fantastic website called Airbnb!
Airbnb is a website where you can find short or long-term housing anywhere in the world at an affordable price.
Your typical Airbnb stay can be anywhere from a cozy studio apartment in Montmartre, Paris to a house on top of a mountain in Greece. This is not a joke. This is real life. I promise!
The reasons I travel with Airbnb and Why You Should Too:
♦The going nightly rate is less than half of what you would pay for a hotel
♦If you stay five days or longer, the host typically gives you a discount just for being a long-term guest
♦Nine out of ten times the housing situation is gorgeous and magical. My favorite stay this year was in Skopelos, Greece. (The island where Mamma Mia was filmed.) The cottage (with a balcony) was on top of a mountain that overlooked the ENTIRE Aegean Sea. It was stunning! And the host was absolutely lovely!
♦The hosts are local to where you’re staying, so they will give you all the inside details of what to do and maybe even invite you for a coffee.
♦The accommodation is an apartment or house so it always feels like a home away from home!
♦Towels are provided so no need to find space in your suitcase for one
♦It’s the perfect stay if you’re traveling with a companion or if you just want your own space to yoga.
♦Most hosts will even pick you up from where you’re arriving and provide a map of the city you’re staying in.
What you should look for in an Airbnb:
♦How many people they can host
♦Location location location! If you want to be close to the city center, then the cost may be a bit more. However it’s incredibly worth it! No need to waste time on transportation or getting lost in the city you planned to vacation in.
♦Can you drop off your bags before check-in?
♦Does the room fit your needs?
-What kind of bed?
-Is there a bathtub, shower or both?
♦Can you rent out the entire home or is it a shared space?
♦Is there Wi-Fi?
**Remember it’s okay to ask questions as this will be your home away from home!
So let’s recap:
♦Airbnb is a way to travel the world beautifully and affordably
♦You can have a space ALL TO YOURSELF
♦It’s the best way to travel as a local
♦You can ask as many questions as you want before booking
