Recreational Vehicle (RV) vs. Airbnb
When we travel, we can opt for different options to spend our nights in. While choosing a recreational vehicle can be very convenient some people are still not huge fans of sleeping in a vehicle not fully attached to the ground and prefer something different so they feel more secure. While hotels can be very pricy, a new option has become really popular in the last years revolutionizing the world of traveling. We are talking about Airbnb.
Airbnb is a marketplace made by the community where they publish, advertise and book accommodation in a really cheap prince in more than 150 countries via the internet or from your smartphone.
This system allows the user to find accommodation, with the difference that it will not be in a hotel but in the home of a person who may even be living there. The interesting thing is that you will be able to rent from common apartments to houses and other uncommon living spaces like domes or igloos.
Now let’s talk about some of the advantages of staying in an Airbnb.
It can be a more genuine experience: Most of the hotels provide almost the same experience regardless of the country where you are. And you can’t really experience the local vibe because there is nothing specific about the hotel that distinguishes from the rest. Especially the big chain hotels that are famous and all over the globe.
With Airbnb, you can stay in someone’s home and experience what they experience living like a local person, if you stay for a long period of time you can become part of the neighborhood and interact, not to mention most Airbnb owners really encourage communication with their guests by suggesting good spots and some of them even become friends and take them to explore to their favorite spots.
There are many different types of options to choose from depending on what you are looking for. Whether you are looking for a fancy luxurious house in Hollywood hills or a quiet cabin in a rural area. You can choose as well from different filters if you want certain commodities included like a hot tub, pool, pet-friendly, breakfast included, etc.
When it comes to booking stuff online a lot of people are afraid to get scammed or renting the accommodation with someone “weird” but luckily with Airbnb you can read and analyze the reviews for Airbnb you are interested in and see if their experiences were positive. If there is any problem their customer service will support you and resolve any problem you might have with your reservation.
