🧐 What is airbnb and How does it work?
DISCOVER MILLIONS OF POSSIBILITIES
Choose from unique homes—near or far—in many countries around the world. Find everything from getaways near national parks to apartments in the heart of big cities and book right in the app.
FIND ONE-OF-A-KIND HOMES
Easily explore the world of Airbnb—and discover homes that you wouldn’t have known to look for—with a new way to search designed around Airbnb Categories. These curated collections of homes are chosen for their style, location, or nearby activities, whether you want a design marvel, a stay somewhere tropical, or a place near incredible surfing.
STAY LONGER AND EXPERIENCE MORE
Split Stays is an innovative new feature that intelligently splits one trip across two homes. Split Stays automatically appear in search results of trips a week or longer—so guests can find more available homes and experience more on their trip.
GET AN UNMATCHED LEVEL OF PROTECTION
AirCover is the most comprehensive free protection in travel, giving guests the confidence of knowing that if something goes wrong, we have their backs.
CHAT WITH YOUR HOST AND CHECK IN EASILY
Feel at home, no matter where you are. The Airbnb app lets you chat with your Host, receive up-to-the-minute information about your booking, and make the most of your trip by getting the best info on everything local that only expert Hosts would know. A redesigned Trips tab puts all your must-have travel details in one place. Here you’ll also find check-in details that make it easy to get there, get inside, and get connected to wifi.
