Explaining All that AirBNB has to offer: AirBNB Experiences

Ask anyone what AirBNB does and everyone will talk about AirBNB Stay. This is where you rent someone’s house or part of someone’s house in place of renting a hotel room. However AirBNB actually has four components: 1)Stay, 2)Experiences, 3)Adventures and 4)Restaurants. This blog post is meant to explain the little known but exciting facent of AirBNB Experieneces.

What are vacations for? Visiting Cousin Eddie? Well yes, but also for having fun! Doing new things! Exploring the culture and history of an area that you’ve never been to before. It can often be difficult to find and do these things in the limited amount of time that you have on vacation so AirBNB has made this process easy with AirBNB Experiences!

First, how to get to Experiences. First select the area that you want to visit in the Where To box on AirBNB, for example Chicago. This will pull up a section called Explore Chicago with Stays, Experinces and Resturants. (We will go over Restuarants later!) Next click Experiences.

The Experiences section is divided into categories. For example, Chicago is divided into Food & Drink, Arts & Entertainment, Classes & Workshops, History & Local Causes, Sports & Outdoors and Health & Wellness.

The Experiences are hosted by local experts. Each listing gives a brief explanation of not only what you will be doing on the Experience but also who will be hosting it. Generally the Experiences cover everything. If there are entrance fees for example, that will be covered. This is great because often times a local host will be able to get you into an event or show for less than you could! Most Experiences will also cover a light snack and drink so that is one less thing to worry about.

Just like AirBNB stays, Experiences are rated with pictures by previous guest. This is a great feature and will allow you to know exactly what you are getting before you book the Experience.

I love this feature of AirBNB and I’ve noticed that Experiences are being added at a very quick place. You can plan your entire trip on AirBNB now!

Why I Prefer AirBNB over Hotels

I don’t do a lot of traveling but my family typically takes a few trips a year. Until recently, we always stayed in hotels. But over the past 2-3 years, we have exclusively stayed in AirBNB’s. I believe the future of travel is AirBNB’s and I dread the thought of having to stay in a hotel. These are the reasons I prefer AirBNB over hotels.
Traveling with 4 kids and staying in a hotel is horrible. Most hotels limit stays to 4 guest per room. I may have mastered the sneak-in but I’m still stuck in a small room with 2 beds and 2 kids sleeping on the floor(yuk!). Much better to get a whole house!

Eating out every day is expensive and not healthy. Its great having a real kitchen when on vacation.

Because of reviews and pictures, you will know exactly what you are getting when you book an AirBNB. How clean is the house? What is the sleeping arrangement? What is the neighborhood like? Many more questions that you will never get when you book a hotel.

AirBNB will generally cost you less than a nice hotel. Try a stay and you’ll love it better than staying at a hotel. Before signing up for AirBNB, be sure to use this link to get $40 OFF YOUR 1ST STAY!!
