Bottom Line

We have used AirBnb now enough times to see a couple different scenarios. Mainly, we rent from homeowners of vacation homes, but sometimes we see rental companies or management companies using Airbnb to market their client’s homes. One time, we even were able to switch to a totally different Airbnb rental via the management/rental agency (once we arrived) because we didn’t like the one that we committed to via Airbnb. But, Lufthansa selling seats between Frankfurt and New York on Airbnb is certainly a new concept for me! What’s next?
