We are always longing to cut out those unnecessary costs while traveling. Hotels appear expensive and sometimes unreasonable too. So, are there any alternatives? The answer to these questions was a big ‘no’ until AirBnB came along.
AirBnb is a wonderful peer-to-peer online marketplace providing a homestay network enabling people to list/ rent short-term lodging in the residential properties. In simpler words, it’s the perfect choice for those people who would want to stay in the comfort of a home and not a hotel. You stop over at someone’s house who isn’t using it. And the cost of such accommodations is set by the property owners.
It is a popular choice for all those international travelers and is also a fantastic way to save expenses on the next trip.
