Airbnb has definitely become our favourite way to find amazing accommodation when travelling around the world or locally. Meeting fabulous hosts and staying in quirky accommodation is the best way to experience other countries and locally too.

Air BnB - JoinSo many places to choose from and a wider variety of styles than other booking sites. Being able to stay in luxury, a caravan, castle, yurt or hammock is incredible.

The feedback system is great too as it holds people responsible for their behaviour. Feedback is given by both the property owner and the guest.

The founders are passionate about their business and the website is intuitive, friendly and so easy to navigate around.

“Founded in August of 2008 and based in San Francisco, California, Air bnb is a trusted community marketplace for people to list, discover, and book unique accommodations around the world — online or from a mobile phone.

Whether an apartment for a night, a castle for a week, or a villa for a month, Air BnB connects people to unique travel experiences, at any price point, in more than 34,000 cities and 190 countries. And with world-class customer service and a growing community of users, Airbnb is the easiest way for people to monetise their extra space and showcase it to an audience of millions.”

Hosting with Air BnB

Adding your property and becoming a host brings an added income stream,  it also connects you to fellow travellers to share experiences with and provide local knowledge to maximise their visit to your region. We have recently become hosts on Air BnB with our 1959 vintage caravan and have had the best guests come stay. Meeting new folk and interacting is a major part of the Air BnB setup.
