Skip the fancy hotel and live like a local!
There are many ways to find accommodation while traveling. With so many options, it can be overwhelming. But only a few options offer the unique experience of actually living like a local. Organizations like Air BnB give travelers the unique opportunity to rent the apartment, house, farm, bedroom, or even castle of a local.
Air BnB started in August of 2008 and is based in San Francisco, California. Airbnb is a community marketplace for people to list, discover, and book unique accommodations around the world — online or from a mobile phone.
There are all different types of accommodations available for you to choose from. Apartment for a night, a castle for a week, or a villa for a month, Airbnb connects people to unique travel experiences, at any price point, in more than 33,000 cities and 192 countries.
Travel Easy and Free: Air BnB
How Does it Work?
You can either rent a place or put your place up for rent. It’s a great way to sublease your place if you are going on vacation or if you have an extra room and need a little extra cash. For people just looking to rent accommodation, it provides a “local” feel of living in the place you are visiting. You are usually staying in someone’s apartment or house. Sometimes right in the middle of the city.
How do I add my place to Air BnB?
It’s super simple. You just head over to their website and fill out the host form. Make sure you take some stellar pictures of your place and include helpful location information to your guests so they know exactly what they are getting. The rest is between you and Air BnB.
The best part of Air BnB is that they have places all around the world. If you are traveling soon and need an expedited passport, we can help get your passport and visas in as little as 24 hours.
