What type of accommodation is available through Airbnb?

  • Apartments/houses. The perfect solution for independent explorers (or those who simply prefer their privacy), renting an entire place to yourself and having space, privacy and that at-home feeling is what sets Airbnb apart.
  • Castles. Airbnb proudly lists more than 1,400 castles available for short-term rental.
  • Bedrooms. You can also rent private rooms to share in a flat or house with others on Airbnb.
  • B&Bs. If you like to wake up to eggs sunny-side up or a laid-out Swedish table, there are a number of B&B options to choose from.
  • Hostels. For the budget-minded and backpackers, there are a number of shared rooms and hostels available for rent.
  • Hotels. While the service mainly focusses on alternative accommodation, traditionalists will be pleased with the boutique-style selection of hotels.

Airbnb: Pros and cons

Pros

  • Airbnb places a lot of value in the trustworthiness of its service (for hosts and travellers). All members must be verified.
  • Any questions can be worked out using the Airbnb private message service.
  • Anyone can view the verified reviews of a place or guest(s) and benefit from the experiences of others.

Cons

  • Airbnb facilitates the transaction between host and traveller. Individual experiences, policies and conditions will vary from place to place.

Is Airbnb legal?

Laws around holiday rentals are different depending on your location and some apartment buildings do not allow tenants to rent out their units.

In the UK, Airbnbs are legal. However, there are frequent government debates around the topic. It’s best to check whether it’s legal in the local area you’re hoping to stay in before making your booking.


How do Airbnb payments work?

If you make a reservation on an instant book property, you’re charged at the time of booking. If you make a request to book a property, you’ll be charged once the host accepts your stay.

Airbnb holds the payment until 24 hours prior to the stay, then releases the funds to the host.

Which forms of payment does Airbnb accept?

  • Visa
  • Mastercard
  • Amex
  • Discover
  • JCB
  • PayPal (select countries)
  • Google Wallet (Android app only)
  • Apple Pay (iOS app only)

Do Airbnb bookings include breakfast?

Despite the hint towards a “bed and breakfast” experience, Airbnbs usually don’t include breakfast. Some hosts do offer to leave basic breakfast items or serve breakfast, but the majority of hosts do not.

Do I need to clean my Airbnb?

Airbnb stays usually include a cleaning fee, which generally covers regular maintenance and the washing of linen. General tidying is expected though, especially if your Airbnb has a kitchen that you’ve used. Most hosts will expect any used dishes to be cleaned.

How do I cancel my booking with Airbnb?

Airbnb allows hosts to select their own cancellation, change and refund policies based on the Airbnb guidelines. Hosts can choose strict, moderate and flexible options. Airbnb will stand by this selection should a need for a cancellation arise. This is except in the case of an extenuating circumstance.
