Today, we announced our new way to experience a rental for free: being a housemate.
Airbnb is different from any other marketplace — what you have as a real-world tenant directly influences
Your experience as a host.
We have stories about hosts who bought a lot of furniture from their rental, tried painting, rented out rooms, moved out of the apartment, left their rent all the way to the end, and ended up having paid the entire rent too early and ended up needing to pay it all back. This is why, now, you have more options to explore Airbnb before renting:
When it is time to book, we will verify your address using Google Maps and your own data
You also can choose more accurate reviews and room promotions
The best way to experience a rental is to visit it! Do you want to see what is behind the welcome sign? Do you love your host’s kitchen? Do you know where there is a common area? Does your rental have a pool? What about the bike park? Do you know where all the quiet spots are? Do you know how much it cost to host?
Introducing Housemates: Airbnb is different than any other marketplace. By being a housemate, you gain access to exclusive discounts, exclusive events, early booking promotions, early checkouts, brand partnerships, and more.
That’s not all. You will also receive a flat 25% off your monthly rent, and we have free shipping for all of your travels.
You can get yourself into a great place using the new Housemates shortcut in Airbnbs App. For example, to book a bed share on Regent or South Kensington.
On the other hand, you also will benefit from hosting a room share on Regent in London, South Kensington, or Mallorca. You can book any bed share at reasonable prices — for example $25 for one person, $60 for three people, and so on! Plus, you will receive at least $25 of free Wi-Fi with your booking, plus a great shared kitchen, storage, and more. (Extended up to 3 months for booking code GIFTCLEAR!)
