airbnb - have you used it?

Have you tried airbnb?

We've now stayed twice and had a good experience with both. I didn't realise that the owners also graded you on how you treated their unit, home, etc

Ive just signed up as a host, renting out our garden studio. Obviously far too cheap as i have immediately been booked out for 3 months. Looking forward to meeting people. Figure its the next best thing to travelling myself - people visiting from all over the world. The app encourages guests and hosts to interact by just asking simple things like purpose of your visit and your interests. I have used overseas and always been pleasantly surprised with my expectations being exceeded. Luck of the draw, but think you will generally get a much better experience for your dollar than a faceless hotel.

I agree. We've used it about a dozen or so times now and love it! Much better value and experience!

I did and it was a disaster. Tired up in Vancouver after flying from Brisbane via Liz Angeles to find that there was no accommodation there for me. The person who rented the apartment had been slicked out some 6 months earlier as the apartments found out they were using as air bnb against regulations.

Apparently Airbnb were advised.

Took about $70 worth of additional costs in phone calls and Internet to resolve. There was a lot of kerfuffle in trying to get the invoice for the alternate accommodation (they refunded the costs I paid straight away and the had the capacity to pay $150US per night additional costs for replacement accomm. This was the result of my internet. (While away I had no capacity to attach a doc from the email I booked with. If I had registered with hotmail email would have been all good. (They can only receive emails from the registered email address).

Once i got that through the additional amount was refunded within a few days.

Was still out of pocket about $100 between Internet, phone calls and additional taxi and a few hours but reasonably comfortable with the quality of the process. Make sure they still have that policy re alternate accommodation and I'd be comfortable to book.

We have used it a dozen or so times as well, and it has been wonderful. We find it is best to book with Superhosts who have a lot of feedback. Saved a fortune on hotels travelling this way and got excellent restaurant and shopping recommendations. It allows you to live like a local in your destination.

I have used it in Germany and France. My German experience was amazing and I'm going back again in a few months because I became good friends with the family.
My french experience was a little unpleasant. Nothing too bad, she just had some very strange rules and it made my stay a little challenging. All part of the experience though..

How do you go with your insurance when you are letting out part of your property? I figure you have to get some kind of special insurance.

We have a separate wing to our farmhouse that my husband has toyed with listing on Airbnb during the big events in our area a few times a year but the insurance and the Capital Gains Tax issues put me off!

We used it in the UK, was ok and Tassie which was good. One of my friends loves Airbnb and uses it everywhere but some of the dodgy stuff she talks about makes me retreat to my comfy hotel or apartment. They booked one in New York where they met the landlord down the street and had to sneak in and out! Not my thing LOL!

Have used it often

Usually found it good but sometimes the owners tell porky pies. So when I asked if a property was suitable for a person who has difficulty walking and uses a walker I was told it was not a problem - there was a straight path from the car to the unit. (no mention of the tree roots growing through the path - husband had great difficulty with that one) and another who didn't tell us there was a downstairs toilet but offered a 'pot' to use at night!! Other than that they are usually way better than hotel rooms. Cheaper and nicer
