- If you know your destination and dates and want a good Airbnb, I strongly suggest booking two months in advance. You’ll have more options to choose from, increasing your chances of staying closer to or exactly where you want without having to break the bank or stay some place not-so-safe.
- Filter for “Entire home” if you want privacy and some guarantee of a creep-free environment.
- If you can’t decide on a place but have found a bunch you like, make a wish list in your account and label it with your destination, like “San Diego” or “Barcelona.”
“Filter for “Entire home” if you want privacy and some guarantee of a creep-free environment. Filter for “Private room” if you want to get to know your host (and are okay with rolling the dice on the situation being potentially sketchy), and have a more fulfilling cultural experience.”
