Travelers must make every effort to reduce travel expenses due to rising airfare and accommodation costs. Renting through AirBnB.com is a great way to save money on hotels and reduce the cost of accommodation. AirBnB.com allows owners from over 192 countries to list their property or part of it for rent. You can also look for companies that manage Airbnb rentals via www.shosty.com/.
These are five tips to help you navigate AirBnB's listings.
1) Location: Pick a place that is interesting to you, and which provides a base from which you can explore your destination. Airbnb offers the ability to search for rentals in specific areas. They also include areas with great dining options.
2) Pay attention to reviews and pictures: If you don't mind living in a dump, then don't minimize the importance of reviews and pictures. You should immediately consider a rental without sufficient quality photos. It's easy to remove a listing from your prospect list if it doesn't have any reviews or has poor reviews.
3) Cancellation policy: Pay attention to the cancellation policy of the owner. It can be very flexible or very strict.
4) Avoid the red tape: The apartment should be beautiful and there would be many positive reviews. You should also avoid renting if your landlord is trying to force you through unanticipated hoops or you are uncomfortable with the rental terms.
