Looking for a weekend break or school holiday oasis? Ever thought of trying Airbnb?
AirBnB is a Community Built on Sharing, they began in 2008 when two designers who had space to share hosted three travellers looking for a place to stay. This simple concept grew so quickly that this has become a world wide business model used by travellers & accommodation establishments alike.
It’s easy to use, millions of hosts and travellers simply create a free Airbnb account. The hosts advertises their room / apartment or unit and the traveller simply book their accommodation anywhere in the world.
A recent article by Traveller24 explained how booking with Airbnb can in most cases secure you a better deal than most hotels and B&B’s in an area.
The following is quoted directly from their website and the link to the whole article is at the bottom:
Cape Town’s Airbnb offering is one of the biggest in SA, but because the demand is so big in the Mother City, the housing options are still relatively expensive.
You’ll struggle to find a good spot for under R1 200 a night, for an entire apartment or house. But because the price range is so vast, there are plenty of great bargains in Cape Town too – you don’t have to pay big money to have a value-for-money stay.
Compared to hotel prices in the rest of Africa, Cape Town hotel prices are also relatively cheap.
Mother City guests would pay around R1 448 per night for a hotel stay, according to a 2015 survey.
So, depending on what travellers are after, both Airbnb and hotels or B&B can offer different services
and perks for about the same price.
Some home owners in more exclusive areas like Clifton, Camps Bay and Llandudno, however, have the power to offer guests incredible views for much less that they’d pay for a night in an exclusive hotel in the area, like Twelve Apostles, for example.
It is in these exclusive suburbs where Airbnb may trump hotels and B&Bs in terms of value for money.
The service is extremely easy to use, and you can book, confirm and pay through the site. Airbnb verifies personal profiles and also provides a 24/7 customer support team to assist you when needed.
