What is Airbnb?
Airbnb is an online marketplace where owners can list their property for rental on the Airbnb website or app. Therefore, holiday goers searching for an appropriate holiday house, apartment or studio can filter through the website to find the perfect place.

1. Quick and easy to use.
Download the app, or simply use your computer. The process is quick and easy to book an apartment. Each profile has plenty of pictures of the house/apartment available and it comes with a map of the location to familiarize yourself with the area. Most hosts will give a good description of what is available in the area on the profile page of the rental. Payment is also easy, with a simple credit card required to book your accommodation.
2. Contact the host of your apartment with ease.
When you have chosen an apartment, you may need to ask a question or two to the host. Each profile on the website page comes with an option to contact the host. Generally, a reply is given within the day, most times within an hour. Depending on time zones of course
3. Short term-long term, you’re covered.
Staying a month or overnight. It doesn’t matter. If the booking is available for your required dates and paid upfront, you are all settled and your focus can turn to the activities you can do on your holiday. Please note however, some host require that you stay for at least a two or more nights minimum. Check the terms and conditions.
