AirBnB – crowdsource your vacation or business lodging rental

Airbnb

AirBnB is a new online service which offers direct links to people and organisations willing to rent out their premises for short term stays. So it’s kind of like a hotel booking service, but without the hotels. Rentals vary from own room in a private house to a full rental of a luxury villa, and the prices as you would expect compete nicely with hotel rates.

 Nice folks, folks like you, list their guest rooms, futons, and even couches on the site and set a price per night. Adventurous travelers looking for a place to stay can search the listings for an accomodation that’s just right. When they find a match, guests can book your room via credit card. You receive a notification to check out their profile, and decide if the guest is appropriate for your pad. When you accept a guest, contact information is exchanged, itineraries emailed, and the transaction is completed confirming the reservation.
