Airbnb is a great alternative to hotels. If you don’t have an account, you can now get an Airbnb signup bonus of up to $55 toward your first trip when you complete a qualifying reservation. The bonus comes in two parts:
- $40 off a home booking of $75 or more and
- $15 toward an experience of $50 or more.
Coupons expire one year from date of sign up.
Airbnb is a great alternative to hotel chains. They offer unique accommodations from local hosts in 191+ countries, so you’ most likely be able to find a place anywhere. Prices will be usually 25-30% cheaper than hotels (if you’re paying cash) and you’ll get to stay in a home, instead of a hotel. It might not offer all the luxuries of an hotel, but for lots of people it creates a better vacation experience, instead of just another hotel. If you get a place with a kitchen you can also save tons of money by eating in and having real meals. I use Airbnb often, and sometimes you’re able to stay in old parts of towns where big chains are not available.
The $40 Airbnb signup bonus has been around for a while, but now you also get $15 toward an experience of $50 or more. You can also sign up to host here.
