When people want to go on vacation they first need to plan their trip. They look for an affordable flight. If they find one, they might then look for a hotel. That used to be the only option people had. At least for the hotel part. I’m not saying there is a new way to travel, yet. One day, soon, we’ll be able to travel at high speeds underground, thanks to Elon Musk and his Boring Company. But something has happened to lodge on vacations. The hotel industry is being disrupted by Airbnb.
Airbnb is a service where patrons can either put their house up for a night’s rent or stay at this house. Hosts and guests get connected on Airbnb’s website, online. It’s very easy to use. As a matter of fact, I’ve used Airbnb multiple times! Airbnb is disrupting the hotel industry, but it won’t have much of an impact. Most people still use hotels for vacations. However, guests might want to stay in an area where there is no hotel. What do they do, then? They can go to Airbnb’s website and see if there is a house or apartment available for them.
One of the good things about Airbnb is that the owner of the house sometimes throws in extras. For example, where I stayed, I had many free things at my disposal. I was able to take out kayaks and bikes that were part of the property. I was able to use the grill to make dinner. And I enjoyed sitting on the pier as the sun went down. Airbnb has its perks. But hotels have plenty of benefits as well. For example, I love it when hotels have free gyms, swimming pools, or free breakfast. If I’m staying in a hotel, it better than free breakfast! And I prefer a hot breakfast, with eggs and sausages. If anything, Airbnb is just another option for travelers.
