If you’re going away on holiday, you’ll need a place to stay, and you’ll want to find the place that is just right. Unfortunately, the prices of hotels can be quite expensive, especially if your plans were to travel to a very specific destination. They can be even worse depending on what time of year it is, too. This will leave you puzzling as to what you’re going to do for your holiday, let alone where you’re going to stay for it.
Well, why not try booking an Airbnb holiday?
Across the globe, there are 7 million listings available for you to stay at, with a reported 2.9 million people who serve as a host. There are countless reasons why an Airbnb is a great idea for your holiday, so let’s take a look at four reasons why you should use one for your next getaway.
Asking for the prices of an Airbnb is no different than asking the age-old question of “how long is a piece of string?” This is due to the fact that hosts can set their own prices, so what they will charge – days, weeks, or even months – will vary from host to host. However, while hotels can certainly charge an arm and a leg for their services, an Airbnb is generally the cheaper and more ideal alternative. If you’re frugal when it comes to your spending habits, then an Airbnb is certainly for you.
Airbnb is More Homely
If you’re going to be away from your home, you’ll absolutely want to feel as comfortable as possible residing in a place that is different than what you’re used to. If anything, the strange needs to become the familiar. This is something that Airbnb has over a hotel room any day.
Compare a hotel room to an allocated room in an Airbnb. A hotel room, at its worst, can invoke a comparison to artificial alternatives to certain foods. They imitate a room by trying to be a more pristine ‘superior’ copy, creating a synthetic feel to it, whether that’s by how precise the cleaning is or how it’s decorated. Since it’s very easy to create, it’s starting to create a monotonous view that lacks variety. An Airbnb room will have a very different feel to it. The host will want to make sure everything is spick and span, and while it may not be as meticulous as in a hotel, it generates a vibe that you might have from cleaning your own home.
In addition, what also gives you the feel of being at home is that you’ll have access to a kitchen and be able to do your own cooking. Sure, you’ll be on holiday and probably won’t want to cook much, but if you’re in the mood, the option is available.
Diversity of Options
Going back to what was discussed at the start of the previous reason, something everyone wants to have if they are staying in a place that isn’t their own home is comfort. After all, without a comfortable environment to reside in, how will we unwind and relax?
But this raises a question: what sort of place makes you feel comfortable?
Now, this may seem like a bit of an odd enquiry, but some people feel more satisfied in an environment that they like the most. You’ll actually be surprised to find that the places you can stay at with Airbnb are more than just simple houses. A house may be a home, but it is only one type of home. Airbnb can offer anything from houses to more extravagant locales, such as treehouses, boathouses, lighthouses, and – we kid you not – castles. Airbnb possess a diverse range of places to stay, so you never know – you might find that right one for you!
Booking is Easy
It can be an awful habit to make things overly complicated and excessively detailed. While this may be true in the modern world, we all want things to be simple and straightforward to reassure us that what we need/want to do is easy.
Booking with Airbnb is straightforward and is intended to be convenient. To do this, all you need to do is set up an account, look for listings in the place you wish to stay at, find the right spot, and maybe even engage in a conversation with the host. You’ll be able to see photographs of the destination, and possibly even a video to give you a better understanding of what the place is like.
If a hotel seems too ordinary, let alone too expensive to book for a holiday, then choosing an Airbnb looks like the right thing for you. Hosts will set their own prices, while the place you choose to stay in can be whatever you want it to be (providing it exists at the location of your choice, that is) and it will feel like you’re at home without being at home. To top it all off, the booking procedure is extremely straightforward, making the whole idea of wanting to stay at an Airbnb now or in the future more promising than anywhere else.
