In the past years I have been traveling a lot and during all these travels I have been in all different types of accomodation. In Europe I spend some nights in a hostel with 35 beds for one room, in Thailand I had a cottage just feet away from a white sandy beach and in Colombia I spend some nights in a hammock directly in the jungle, but since Airbnb got popular between travelers, it has been my first choice when searching a place to stay.
For anyone who doesn´t know what Airbnb is; Airbnb is an american company that provides you accomodation offered by locals. In easy words: you rent someone else house. Although this might sound a little bit strange and distrustful on the first sight, Airbnb is has a whole plan to provide security for host and guest. Each member muss verify its information with a passport or drive licence scan and Airbnb has an insurance for over 700.000 USD in case of damages.
The first time I used Airbnb was in Miami and we got a beautiful apartment right in Ocean Drive with a parking spot and everything we needed for a good holiday. I couldn´t believe on the first sight that such a beautiful place cost just 1/3 of a 3-star hotel in the area and a little bit more than a dorm in a hostel. Since then I have been the number 1 customer for the company.
Airbnb allows you to choose your price range, your type of accomodation and the area you want to stay. You will be surprise how many possibilities you have in usually-fulled places like NYC or Paris, where getting a hostel or a hotel room in some dates can be a nightmare.
I love Airbnb and I recomend it for each traveler looking for traveling on a budget with a touch of luxury. Beside that you can get lots of bonuses and discounts each months or creating new accounts.
If you create your account with Airbnb through the link below, you will get 25USD from me directly in your new account. This might be enough to get a whole apartment in the caribbean or gift your girlfriend a nice romantic daytrip in Paris.
Now I have to say goodbye from my Airbnb penthouse in Paris. Save travels and have fun
