Renting through Airbnb can save you hundreds of dollars. Nightly rooms coast a fraction of what a hotel will charge you. Airbnbs also offer greater amenities than hotels. This includes free laundry, full kitchens and free internet/computer access. The hosts want you to feel welcome and pampered. If there are unique laws, such as the outlaw of plastic bags, hosts are the first to fill you in and even do things like provide a reusable bag for your shopping. Rates vary, but ultimately you can save as much as 60% on your trip booking through Airbnb.
