9 Reasons to Become a Host with Airbnb
Airbnb is the way to go when it comes to travel and accommodation these days.
Value for money and a new and exciting way to travel are the biggest attractions and we couldn’t recommend it enough. Feel at home anywhere you go in the world with Airbnb. Here are 9 reasons to become an Airbnb host.
1. Meet People From Around the World
Airbnb explores the beauty of global interaction. With your Airbnb account you will be able to link with people from different parts of the world, inspiring places close to home or thousands of miles away and offer your home or room as a place to rent for a period of time.
2. Become Accustomed With a New Culture
With a variety of people from around the world staying at your place it allows the chance to learn about different cultures. Sit down and have a chat with your guests and find out their story, how they live in their country. Learn something about Brazilian culture or Japanese culture that you never knew before.
3. Form Long Lasting Relationships
You never know, with some of the people you meet from different parts of the world and with different cultures you may make some true friends and form long lasting bonds.
4. Make a Bit of Extra Cash
Hosting opens up a world of new opportunity plus you get to make a few bob! You get to earn money by sharing your extra space with travellers.
5. Pay Off College Loans, any Outstanding Loans, etc.
Now that you’re making a bit of money it allows you to pay off any outstanding loans you may have. If you still have those college loans hanging over your head or just want a few extra quid for rent and bills becoming a host will help you gain more in the long run.
6. Buy Something You Couldn’t Afford Before
As a result of earning money by sharing your space you can now buy the designer sunglasses you’ve always dreamed of or put money aside for your own little trip away.
7. Reason to Update Your Home (good excuse!)
We all want to give the house a bit of a spruce but sometimes the motivation is too much of an ask. Becoming a host now gives you the excuse to update your home. It gives you that extra push to give the walls a lick of paint or to update the bedrooms.
8. Travel More/Small Getaways
As a host you’re getting the opportunity to meet people from all over the world and learn about their countries. This might inspire you to visit new unique places you’ve never been to before. With the bit of money you’re earning as a host you could book that spa weekend or golfing weekend away you always wanted.
9. Inform Yourself and Your Guests on Things Going on in Your City. Show Off your City.
A lot of us Dubs don’t like to admit it but some of us don’t know our city as well as we should! Becoming a host will give you the incentive to learn a few things about our lovely city and inform your guests on some of the best restaurants, cafes, pubs, sites and walks for not only the tourists but the locals too.
List your space by 31st March and Airbnb will give you an extra €100 as a welcome gift
