Making travel plans can sometimes be the most frustrating part of a weekend getaway. Finding a hotel, renting a car and dealing with all the logistics can make and break the vacation. This is why most people have been using Airbnb services to deal with the hotel part of their travel.
Airbnb is an online service that provides users with an endless amount of rooms, apartments and even homes that they can rent out for a certain period of time. Overall, the service is one that has made it simple and easy for vacationers to figure out where they are going to hang their hat for the time being.
Funny enough, Airbnb was created by two guys living in San Francisco. At the time, they couldn’t afford their rent so they decided that the weekend of a large conference, they were going to rent out their living space and put air mattresses for guests to stay. Since hotels were filled up and people were in need of a home, they thought that this would be a great idea.
Little did they expect, this idea quickly flourished into a billion-dollar business. Now, Airbnb is one of the largest online marketplaces to book rooms, hostels, houses, etc.
