Airbnb is a community marketplace that serves to publish, advertise, and book accommodation economically in more than 190 countries through the internet or from your smartphone. It is based on the “Bed and Breakfast” modality (where the “bnb” comes from).
It is one of the most successful systems of the collaborative economy – an economic system in which goods and services are shared and exchanged between individuals through digital platforms.
This system allows the user to find accommodation, with the difference that it will not be in a hotel but in the home of a person who may even be living in it.
The interesting thing is that you can rent everything from common apartments to treehouses, igloos, geodomes, mills, etc.
How Does It Come?
According to Kay Kuehne, every company is born from a problem, and “Airbnb” is no exception.
He says that the founders Brian Chesky and Joe Gebbia arrived in San Francisco with their heads full of ideas but with little facility to develop them, however, they had a problem, they lived in a very large house and were only two people.
It was not until their landlord raised the price of rent that they could no longer pay.
Thinking about how to cover the expenses, they began to rent spaces for an event that would take place in San Francisco.
They created a page to promote their unoccupied spaces which would be the first version of “Airbnb”.
How does it work?
The first thing to do is to register to be able to start searching through different filters such as type of room, price range, services, type of accommodation, etc.
Once you have filtered, the following is to select the one you liked the most, from the facade to the amenities and services.
The platform has a messaging system designed to select dates and make reservations.
Fill in all the profile data requested of you, verifying each of them so that the host has the security of hosting you.
The host will be notified of the request and may accept or cancel it within the next 24 hours of the request.
The price in all countries is in dollars and you can pay by credit card or Paypal.
What about security?
One of the features of “Airbnb” is that both a host and a reliable guest have identity verification, it is easily identifiable because an icon appears on their profile and to verify the identity you must send your scanned identity document by email.
“Airbnb” is a well-made system that works well.
