Why I use Airbnb while traveling

As a frequent traveller I often look for an authentic, immersive experience. I do feel comfy and has no problem with a cozy one-bedroom listed on Airbnb. If you're low or high on cash, Airbnb is picking up the slack with accommodations ranging from a pull-out couch for a few dollars to a Top Gun luxury apartment.

In Sharebox we are happy to see the tourism sector grow and the original infrastructure, the hotel industry, just cannot cope with the sheer demand. Airbnb's role is to absorb all of the travelers that are interested in a great space that's perfect for their needs.

In summer when hotels fill up, home listings service attracts people on a budget. In addition to absorbing the overflow from sold-out hotels, Airbnb listings provide a cheaper way of business travel when looking to save costs. Though larger companies might have hotel contracts, many smaller companies opt for Airbnb. I think the listings, coupled with a big volume of savvy travelers, is advertisement enough.

It’s completely understandable why some people would be uncomfortable renting an Airbnb rental from someone they don’t know. But give it a try! You won’t regret it.

If you feel like splurging a bit, you can do that and stay in cool and unique places like treehouses, bungalows, castles, lighthouses, yachts, boathouses and even penthouses. The possibilities are endless.

I´m always opting for a rental that lets me hang out to explore the neighborhood. Often I end up with a stylish, cute apartment and not a basic room, but hey, thats me. It´s great to stay in a local neighborhood, get insider knowledge about the destination, see the destination through the eyes of a local, and get a small glimpse of how locals live. Dine where locals dine, feel more connected to where you are traveling too, go off the beaten path, talk and have fun with a local.

We are all living this vagabond life, traveling all the time for pleasure and business and often we want to maintain a lifestyle in a neighborhood that feels comfortable to us.

Stay comfy, choose smooth key exchange services and be a friend of Sharebox.
