For those of you who don’t know, Airbnb is a vacation rental company that leverages reviews and verifications to ensure owners get well-behaved renters and renters receive honest information from owners about the rental properties. Fees are comparatively low, often resulting in better prices than vacation rental giants like Homeaway and FlipKey, and the Airbnb site is very user-friendly.
Planning a trip sometime in the next few months? If you’ve been considering giving Airbnb a shot, now may be the time to pull the trigger. Here are the details of Airbnb’s incredible “Be Our Guest” offer:
- Book any property on Airbnb for two nights or more and receive one of those nights for free
- Reservations must be made between January 13-17 to qualify
- Offer good on rentals to be completed by March 31
- Person who makes reservation must be new to Airbnb
- Discount value limit is $300 and applies only to the rental rate
- Use the promotion code ONENIGHT
For those of you already partaking in the Airbnb revolution, there are still ways to take advantage of this offer. Vacation rentals are often booked because they provide a better value to groups traveling together, so one solution is just to find someone else in the group who hasn’t signed up yet. If you’re looking for that romantic Valentine’s Day getaway with your partner, chances are probably good that even if the two of you have used Airbnb before, only one of you has done the booking, meaning the other partner is still eligible.
