The holidays are still in full swing, meaning you need to decide whether you want to stay with family or arrange your own accommodations. While hotels were once your only option, you must also consider Airbnb.
Why Airbnb This Holiday Season?
Airbnb is has swept the travel world by storm, providing multiple travel benefits for travelers on a budget and travelers with a bit more to spend. Head to the site to choose accommodations for your desired travel dates from rented guest rooms, basement/garage apartments, coach/guest/grandma houses, or even entire condos or homes that are unoccupied, some of which are quite swanky.
How to Break the News to Your Family
Yes, the holidays are a joyous time, but with everyone crashing on the couch, floor, and every available bed, you might crave some alone time. Or at least a bathroom with privacy. It might not be easy to explain to your beloved family members you aren’t staying with them, so keep it short and simple.
Even if most of the time you spend in your Airbnb is spent sleeping, it is still nice to have the extra “me” time and all the comforts of home. And even if you are staying in someone’s guest room, they are likely to afford you more privacy and space than your well-intended friends and family.
Bonus Tip: Since you will be out of town, anyway, consider listing your home on Airbnb while you are gone and make a bit of extra cash.
