Even though I am from the tourism industry and work with hotels all the time, I love to stay at Airbnb too.
HERE ARE FEW PLACES WHERE WE USED AIRBNB:
- Victoria, British Columbia – Canada
- Calgary, Alberta – Canada
- Jasper, Alberta – Canada
- Salta – Argentina
- Paris – France
- Near Bordeaux – France
And I am sure I have forgotten some.
Airbnb has some great options when you are budget-minded. For example, you can share rooms, or just rent a room in someone’s place.
Also, for example, traveling Canada on a budget in regards to accommodations can be a challenge. Airbnb makes that so much easier. You get great deals with flat/house centrally located!
Traveling with Friends.
Planning to travel with friends and want to stay all together? While in a hotel room you’ll be maximum 4 (and that’s rare) on Airbnb you can get Penthouse for 10. YES, A PENTHOUSE!
We all want to be in our preferred location when we travel. Hotel centrally located can be quite pricey, Airbnb offers the cheapest options
We did it for Paris and believe me it worth it! We had a flat, centrally located and way cheaper than staying at any hotel in that area for such a long period.
You have so many options available to choose from! Stay within your budget by sharing Rooms. Meet people (Shared place) or find a romantic gateway (Entire place)
There is something for everyone!
Because you have so many options I recommend you to use the filter when you do your search.
Dates & Number of people – Obviously
Price – Budget is important, you don’t want Airbnb to give you 100 options for things that don’t even match your needs.
Type of accommodation – As above: Shared Room, shared apartment, the entire place
Facility: Wifi, Kitchen, parking, basics stuff at the place
Use the map to see the location, compare the area with maps.google.com to see what’s next to it
AND read reviews! Is it a good neighborhood, close to the center… Whatever you wanna know!
That’s it, you’re all set.
