Since the dawn of Airbnb, people have wondered “Why is Airbnb different” “What’s so special about Airbnb?”
I’m here to let you know there are plenty of reasons why travelers continue to choose Airbnb–a reliable, comfortable, short-term rental to meet their home-away-from-home needs. Here are a few reasons travelers choose Airbnb causing a big dent in the hotel industry.
More for Your Money
More space for less money keeps travelers all around the world choosing Airbnb over other accommodation options. For the same price a traveler would pay for a night in a standard hotel room they could have an entire studio to themselves.
Very few have the budget to book a deluxe suite when traveling with a partner. Airbnb is all about value, and you always get what you pay for.
Most hotel memories are filled with funny smells and dodgy internet. I can handle a stained carpet but DO NOT mess with my wi-fi.
The amenities offered in an Airbnb vary but you’ll never have to second guess its reliability. In case you have any concerns, reviews and ratings from previous guests are there to fill you in on what you’re really getting. Airbnb’s usually have more. These are homes and apartments that make you feel you have everything you need to live there–not just stay overnight.
Authentic and Unique Experience
If there’s anything to be said about why travelers choose Airbnb is because of the authentic and unique experiences you can have from your short-term rental. Cabin in the woods, bohemian beachside cot, business suite for two–there is an Airbnb niche for everyone.
Airbnb hosts provide what no service desk gets right. Personalized guest service, a phone number that actually leads to a person who can help, and continuity.
Ever had an issue that requires you to call a number and you end up telling your problem to 5 representatives before someone offers up some sort of solution? Airbnb hosts are the ones travelers are in contact with from day one. They are the ones making sure their guests plane has landed and that they’ve received a proper key handover.
More than guest service, a host know their Airbnb inside out! What hotel clerk can say that about each of their rooms?
Airbnb is global. Travelers tend to be, well…everywhere. There is a huge amount of comfort knowing whether you’re in Buenos Aires, New Dehli, or Chicago there is an Airbnb community that’s ready to take you in and make your experience as good as you expect it.
