Travelling in style without breaking the bank.
Airbnb offers the opportunity for you to plan your trip well in advance. It is great as you can really stay where you want at the price that you desire. You can stay in a luxury apartment at a fraction of the cost of a hotel if you are prepared to do a little research!
Not only does this app provide you with a place to stay, but also the opportunity to experience real people and their lives as well as their culture. The new experiences on Airbnb are a fantastic way to meet local people and see the countries you are visiting without having to follow the main tourist thoroughfares.
Moreover you are able to support the local people who want to teach you about their country and and preserve their culture!
unacceptable for business trips
If i go to hotel or any of the app for travel, they will show only available dates, for airbnb you will request first then you will have to wait, sometimes no one reply you for a half of day and business trip need fast action. And most importantly, of you are traveling with unstable mobile data and if the host accepts your request and you are not able to cancel it and they can take all of your money according to the hosts own refund policy. I had 2 request for the same date and was driving at country and the when i get mobile reception i get charged by both hosts and both will not refund my money. This is very vey bad procedure as for business trips you don't have the luxury of waiting a day or more for reply. When someone posts the rental, they should have dates available which we can choice. Otherwise airbnb is just a advisor and should not have payment function. Should let the render and host deal and communicate them self. Very very very upset user.
Rude and Racist host??
Since the apartment look good with the views and stuffs i booked the room. There was few questions i wanted to ask since the host/apartment owner was not giving me proper instructions about the room and location. The host said if i have so many concerns about the reservation i can cancel the order and i will be fully refunded from Airbnb. Instead i can book a hotel not Airbnb!! And she also have me note saying that only free cancel 5 days prior to arrival date. Confirm i will stay or not. Wow! Is that how you welcome foreign guest? Is she behaving like that because i am foreign people?? I don’t understand. If she don’t want foreign people to stay in her apartment than she could just mention in her profile. It is true that not people are nice. I have so many local friends they are so nice, friendly, kind, helpful people but the host is different. I am so disappointed and unhappy! I hope i will never meet a host like her in the future. I am also considering to delete this app. I am heart broken :’(
