What to Look for When Booking an Airbnb for Your Holiday Getaway

As the holidays approach, you may be on the hunt for a place to stay. Airbnbs can offer an at-home feeling when you’re away from home, but you want to make sure your vacation rental is the perfect fit for your trip. Here is what to look for when booking an Airbnb for your holiday getaway.

Before you even book your stay, you want to read the reviews of the rental spot. You want to be sure to read the reviews thoroughly and dig deep, as the favorable reviews are often the first to appear. Even though you want to find favorable reviews, only being able to find positive reviews can be a red flag. If the reviews sound too good to be true, that may be the case. Of course, you also want to make sure the reviews aren’t mostly negative as well.

Next, check to see if the rental has the amenities you need. It is possible that you are seeking a rental that has comfort amenities to help you feel more at home and at ease during your travels. Some of these amenities may include a coffee maker, air conditioning, and parking.

Up next, inspect the neighborhood of the Airbnb rental. You can research different neighborhoods to see if they are safe, walkable, accessible by public transportation, and convenient. If you’re staying in a bigger city, you want to triple-check the location of the rental to be sure the location is in the neighborhood you want to stay in.

Photos can be helpful when selecting a rental space, but you don’t want to pick a listing based just on the photos. Some photographs may be deceiving. Wide-angle camera lenses make a small room look bigger and photo-editing programs can make a space look brighter. You definitely want to view the photos of a listing to get an idea of the space, but don’t base your selection on the photos alone.
