Update: This promo expired. You can still get a free $25 AirBnB credit towards your first reservation via my referral.
Airbnb (what should I call it? Private residence accommodation site?) is a running a promotion for new customers that can get you two nights for the price of one. “Book your first trip between January 13 – 17 for travel by March 31, and one night of your stay of at least two nights is on us (value up to $300).” Use promotion code ONENIGHT. Partial fine print:
*The discount is valid only for guests who have never completed a booking on Airbnb. To receive the discount, you must book via the Airbnb website with promo code ONENIGHT and successfully complete Airbnb’s Verified ID process prior to booking.
I’ve never used Airbnb. I would be hesitant to stay in a private room (even though I’ve stayed in various hostels… somehow they feel safer) but would be open to renting an entire condo or house.
