If you are one of those who need to relax and pamper with a bit of holiday towards the end of the year but keen to save a bit of money especially from hotels – have you checked out AirBNB, an online resource for you to check out apartments to rent?
A New Concept Of Saving While Enjoying
I personally like the new concept behind AirBNB because they help most people to save (especially on expensive hotel charges or hotel meals) while still being able to enjoy the holiday.
And there are quite a number of benefits should this concept become popular as well as a norm:
1. You get to make real friends while overseas. Most of the time if you are staying in a hotel, you get to make friends with the Hotel Staffs (and it’s more of business relationship) whereas staying in an rented apartment (especially if the owner is staying there as well) – you get to create a better friendship. Should you decide to go back to the same country to re-create the same memories, you know who you can go to when you are there.
2. You get to save more of everything. The best thing about going on a holiday is the ability to enjoy lots more activities but without having to spend so much. If you are a sociable person and can make friends with anybody, especially the owner of the rented apartment, you can really get more things done and save more money. Once you know how the locals live their daily lifestyle without having to spend so much, this is one good benefit that you need to have.
A New Concept Of Supplementing Your Retirement Lifestyle With Your Own Apartment
AirBNB allows anyone with an apartment to be listed on their site and have it rented out – which is a very good concept of supplementing one’s retirement lifestyle with a small income.
Instead of renting it out to one tenant for an agreed long period of time – and the possibility of finding a tenant from hell and having to endure till the end of agreement – you get to enjoy a short term agreement with the kind of concept AirBNB is going to offer. Even if you do get one such bad tenant, you will know that such endurance is short term.
At the end of that ordeal, just collect your payment and start to look forward to the next tenant. And if you are those type that are curious about people, with this kind of arrangement, you get to enjoy all walks of life and all kinds of nationalities. Just learn to be a good host and you get to learn more about the world and people.
If you are opened to such opportunities or like the idea of being able to save on some expenses, it’s time to check out such an online site like AirBNB.
