How to Use Airbnb to Save Money

Airbnb is in the list of the greatest things that has happened to the world in the last decade. It is a reliable community market place that allows people who are traveling to list, discover, and book unique accommodations worldwide. It has changed the way people travel by offering the best accommodations to all types of travelers around the world. What majority of people love about Airbnb is that their prices are very reasonable and the accommodation is much better than most of the hotels. If you are planning to try Airbnb, the following hacks will definitely help save money, time and enhance the overall travel experience.

  1. Get a $40 off on the first stay

A first time user of Airbnb can get $40 off on the very first booking made. Though this is a onetime offer, it is an opportunity that must be availed as it saves the cost. Referral from a friend for the first time can also help get at least $75 off.

  1. Book as early as possible

Unlike hotels that have hundreds of same rooms, Airbnb has unique listings. If the listing gets rented out for a given date, the chance to book it is lost. Amazing places that have an amazing price always go first. The chances that the rates have not escalated are also higher and there is a possibility that there may be a great deal available if booking is made for a long period.

  1. Avail the deals and discount coupons

Due to the availability of regular online Airbnb discounts and deals, there is a very low probability of paying the full rent. While finalizing the booking don’t forget to check out the ‘DontPayFull’ website for tons of discounted coupons and deals. This helps save quite a lot of dollars which can be utilized elsewhere while traveling such as for sightseeing and buying souvenirs.

  1. Negotiate Prices

Majority of Airbnb guests are not aware of the Special Offer feature that is present on the site. The host sends his offer when messaged about dates and booking. This allows negotiations to take place. Being considerate when making offers is very crucial. The end result of positive negotiations is mostly reduced prices and discounts which helps in saving money.

  1. Book for a longer time duration

Booking for a longer time duration is very helpful because numerous Airbnb hosts offer weekly or even monthly discounts. The discounts are usually pretty high and hence less money can be paid with the longer booking. It is cheaper to stay longer in most scenarios.

 

 

  1. Travel with a companion

Traveling alone in most cases tends to be very expensive. Having companions along helps save money as a full price does not need to be paid. When booking the accommodation, the rent is divided among the companions hence making even expensive places reasonable.

Follow these Airbnb tips when intending on making your next booking and you can surely save hundreds of dollars. Saving money and traveling the world at the same time is very much possible all thanks to Airbnb.
