What is AirBnB and is it better than staying in a hotel?

Often hotel bookings can be some of the most aggravating aspects to a vacation or business trip. There are many services boasting to make bookings easier, but even they are often confusing. However, there are better things on the horizon.

For starters, AirBnB is a system for handling the search for finding vacation homes. AirBnB has vacation homes across over 190 countries, with an incredible amount of sites and entries listed. The company functions as an online marketplace for people to list their vacation homes for others to rent and includes a processing fee.

AirBnB offers a great alternative to the traditional hotel stay, both in offering vacation homes that are often much larger and more convenient than traditional hotels, as well as often allowing for cheaper, higher quality stays.

If you are scheduling a vacation or business trip in the near future, look into AirBnB through the offers available for your location. While it won’t be better every time, the open marketplace aspect of AirBnB encourages very positive competition for the consumer.

AirBnB offers the added benefit of enforced competition in a controlled environment, meaning you, the consumer, know for sure that you are getting your dollar’s value. This system is handled by allowing you to see each competitor right beside one another, with the ability to filter the aspects you want to include in your ‘vacation home away from home’. You can read comments left by other vacationers about the accommodations and amenities available.
