airbnblogoUpdated. Airbnb rents out everything from private rooms to entire houses to ancient castles. We stayed at Airbnb’s in Europe and it was great for a family with little kids. We could cook simple meals in the kitchen and eat around a real dining table. You felt more like a local family.

$40 in free Airbnb credit for new users. If you’ve never stayed at an Airbnb, you can get $40 in travel credit towards your first rental with my referral link. I believe I will get $20 of credit after your first booking. Thanks if you use it.

Before booking, I would definitely read review and look for a “Superhost” if possible. Here is a NY Times article with Airbnb tips from a former Superhost.

Have an extra room or taking a long vacation? Airbnb can estimate your income as a host if renting out a private room, in-law unit, or entire house. You can share a spare room in your apartment or do a pseudo-“home swap” by renting out your whole home the next time you’re out of town. You can open your space for one day or all year.

Looking to help others? Airbnb helps connect people displaced by natural disaster and those with open rooms. Right now, they are helping to shelter people affected by the volcanic eruptions in Hawaii.

  1. Last summer, during an internship in Seattle, I stayed in an AirBnB private room for 3 months. It was around 200 per month more than a comparable room off Craigslist, but I was able to get a place without the typical craigslist hassle, I didn’t have to pay a security deposit, I was able to charge it directly to my credit card, and AirBnB has your back if an issue were to arise. The host also had reviews which made me feel even more secure. I felt it was totally worth it under my circumstances.

  2. My wife and I have used it almost exclusively for almost a dozen trips in the past two years around Europe. We’ve never had a problem with private rooms, always as advertised and great value. The only two hiccups we had were in renting the whole flat as it’s not always easy or convenient to get help if something’s wrong (no clean sheets/towels, broken bed).

  3. My friend got the email and it says that “Trip has to begin March 31” . So I opened an account spent hours researching and communicating with hosts and come time to book with the code for a trip in April I get an error. Called support (on hold for 30 min) and it turns out the trip has to be between now & March 31. WTF- It didn’t read like that

  4. I have never used Airbnb, but the concept is intriguing. So far, I have been watching it. I would be worried about getting a place that was not as advertised, after I spent the money and made my way to the destination. But I do like the entrepreneurial aspect for the owners though.

  5. Used it once in London…what should I say the profile looks amazing but reality is a different story. I also wondered how they owner can get those positive reviews. It turned out they were all fake. The owner was upset that I put a “true review” and also gave me a negative review. Now I would rather to pay a little bit more for hotel and always check Tripadvisor.

  6. This is the first time I use airbnb and It’s so hard to use. I already have 25$ in my credit. But when I book, the code is not automatics minus to the price of my booking. Then I try to find any code in my account but I can’t. How can I find my own code that I got and use it for my booking?
