Tips and tricks on how to make a booking on Airbnb – best practices
As you probably know by now, I am an avid Airbnb traveler and although sometimes I love to stay in nice hotels as well, living in a beautiful home is more suitable for the way I love to travel.
In an Airbnb, I am more independent and I feel like a local instead of a tourist, and more connected with the place I am visiting.
After many Airbnb stays, there are a few tips I want to share with you. It may be obvious for some of you but not so much for those who are not familiar with the platform. I hope it helps, but I will write a more in-depth post on the topic.
- Make sure you know what you are booking. Not all homeowners are very familiar with the interface and it can happen to find contradicting information, especially on the kind of accommodation. Example: entire home vs a room? or is the bathroom en-suite? In doubt, always contact the host before booking.
- Read the reviews from the previous guests
- Check the total price and the breakdown, because the price advertised it’s not accurate. Airbnb would add their commission and taxes on the room fare basis that is decided by the owner.
- Consider booking for 7 days or 1 month, so that you most probably get special discounts.
- Read all the details of the listing.
- Read the cancellation policy.
- In doubt, always contact the host before booking.
If you are new to Airbnb or you wish to understand the platform more in details read my post on How to book on Airbnb – a step by step guide.
