What is Airbnb?
Airbnb is an online platform which allows people to rent their spare room, apartment, lodge or any other accommodation to travelers for a price they can determine by themselves.
This means hotel regulations don’t really apply and any place can become a part-time hotel.
We are big fans of staying with local families and we use the platform a lot.
We haven’t had any bad experiences so far and have enjoyed the local knowledge of families who live in the destination we visit.
This gives us access to great information about non-touristy sights, transportation and much more.
