What is the idea of Airbnb?
Airbnb connects the people who want to rent out their homes or rooms to those who are in need of accommodation in the particular locality. Airbnb service is available in more than 81000 cities and 191 countries the world over. The property owners who become Airbnb members can get regular income from their property. This arrangement between the property owners and Airbnb provides comparatively less expensive accommodation for the guests. The accommodation provided by Airbnb is a boon for travelers since they are able to get rooms for less than the price charged by hotels for the rooms.
Variety of accommodation types
The Airbnb hosts who are the property owners will be offering different types of accommodations like single rooms, apartments, suites, entire houses, house-boats and moored yachts. The properties will be listed on the Airbnb website. Airbnb will not charge the hosts for listing the properties on the Airbnb website. In the listings the hosts include captioned photographs, written descriptions and host profiles. The hosts will be deciding the charges per night, per week and per month. Those who are in search of accommodation can search the database of Airbnb either by date and location or by price, property type, amenities and language of the host.

The guests who are searching for accommodation can search for experiences, sight-seeing trips and restaurants also. All these are also offered by the Airbnb hosts.
