Airbnb Review – Travel App of the Month July 2016

airbnb logoThis is for the spontaneous traveller, the holidaymaker that refuses to go home, the adventurer who wants to keep on adventuring… Sure, you can use the Airbnb app to pre-book your holiday accommodation, but using it en-route is the best way to feel its excitement to the fullest.

 

What is the Airbnb app?

It is an accommodation booking app with over 600,000 listings across 191 countries. The accommodation includes, yurts, tree houses, homes, rooms, long term lets… all hosted by local people. So you get to live like a local wherever you are visiting.

What does the Airbnb app do?

The app is useful for those travelling, as well as those hosting. As a traveller you can:

  • Discover and book accommodation via the app
  • Search for last-minute rentals
  • Message your host
  • Get directions to your accommodation
  • Access your itinerary
  • Create a destination wish-list based on accommodation

Who is the Airbnb app for?

Anyone who needs somewhere to stay for 1 night up to many many nights! Families, groups, you name it. According to a few surveys, once someone has tried Airbnb for accommodation, they don’t go back to booking hotels.

We think the mobile app particularly suits the adventurous traveller who has decided to extend their stay overseas, visiting the places your bookings take you. (Don’t forget we offer travel insurance for people who are already travelling –more on that below!)

What do the Airbnb reviews say?

It seems that the app works better for iphone users than for android users, but Google Play is still giving the Airbnb app a very respectable 4.3 stars out of 5. Get Airbnb for free on iTunes, or Google Play.
