Unfortunately, the coupon is only for the firstbooking For one account it can be used only once. But! You can make accounts for your wife, mother, father, grandmother and so on. And even a loved one can, if you have a driver's license with the full name in English or the second one. With each new foreign country you can make a new account.

The only thing is that every time you need to specify a different phone number and another bank card (how to register) If there are usually several cards, then notfool around with new sims, use the numbers of relatives and then turn off notifications on your mobile so that they do not receive SMS messages about reservations. All notifications can be received in the mobile application and without SMS.

Book for a week or a month

Airbnb gives owners the opportunity to givediscounts for weekly and monthly stays. As a rule, when booking apartments for a week or more, a 5-15% discount is given. When booking for a month can reach 50-70%, although, of course, this is rare. Some owners do not give anything at all, but today is not about them.

Therefore, you should always play with dates. It may be that staying for 7 days will be cheaper than 5. Or (more often) staying for a month is cheaper than for 3 weeks. By the way, keep in mind that for some people the monthly discount starts somewhere from 27-29 days, and not from 30-31. Below in the screenshots you can clearly see the difference in price.

28 nights worth 85 thousand rubles, involved a monthly discount

The difference is 17 thousand rubles! Yes, even if I did not give up 28 days, it is better to take a day more, but at a lower price.

Apartments without cleaning

The third opportunity to influence the price concernsshort stay only, for a few days. Some apartment owners add a fixed cleaning fee. Although the tourist at the exit still never does cleaning, there is this option or not. So, if you book a house for 1-3 days, then this option with a fixed price can greatly change the total price not for the better.

Whenever possible I try to search without cleaning.

Cleaning fee as much as 2500 rubles

Payment booking without conversion

I also have a post about how to pay Airbnb without conversion. Not exactly life hacking, rather a reminder to be attentive.

The fact is that in the service you can choose the currencyto make it more convenient. To search for apartments in Spain, it is sometimes convenient to ask the price in euros, to search for apartments in Thailand, you can put baht. But it is imperative that you switch back to RUBLI before payment, so that it is exactly the ruble that is charged off your ruble card.

Otherwise, you will be transferred to the currency conversion by your bank! They will write off, for example, the euro, which through the dollar will be converted back into rubles. The final amount will not be like that.

Booking an apartment bypassing Airbnb

Not quite a good and honest way, but I can not write about it.

Initially, I always choose to book throughservice, even if the owner offers to act directly, so that later in case of problems, return the money. And only then, after living in an apartment and realizing that I like everything, I can negotiate directly with the owner. Usually it is a long time, from the month.

Airbnb takes its commission at everybooking. It is small when booking for several days, but already noticeable when you book for a month or more. Many services actually have a commission, the same, you just do not see it. It is necessary to earn money on something, pay salaries and maintain websites / servers.

Initially, all contacts (yours and host) are hidden. And even if you write them in a personal message, the system will recognize this and hide them, after which the interlocutor will see only the lines “phone number hidden” or “email hidden” in the messages, but there are ways.

  • You can write your phone messages 3 digitsin every message. That is, 3 digits, sent a message, 3 digits sent a message, and so on. Works. You can also write with the replacement of zero with the letter O, and some numbers with letters. Further, the correspondence is already in Whatsapp.
  • Owners who trade renting an apartment inBypassing the service, usually they themselves know how to write their phone so that you can see it. For example, place a photo with a phone number in the description of the apartment.

Perhaps in the future, Airbnb will fix these methods, but for now you can use it if you need a direct connection.

Life hacking 2 - how to find a hotel 20% cheaper

First, choose a hotel on Booking. They have a good offer base, but the prices are NOT the best! The same hotel can often be found 20% cheaper in other systems through the RoomGuru service.
