ALLWAYS BOOK DIRECT!
The popularity of Airbnb has taken the lodging industry by storm. By streamlining the process for individuals to rent their own homes, a revolution has begun. Many users love the ease of use and the ability to use the platform no matter where they travel. Also, the crowd sourced information aids in ensuring guests get what they expect. Airbnb rentals are slowly becoming more popular than hotels in areas like the San Francisco Bay area.
Oftentimes, a Put-In-Bay Airbnbs will have cleaning fees, surcharges and other fees. Keep in mind that airbnb does not have a cleaning service and it is just another way to add more money to your reservation. This should be considered when looking at other booking options. Comparing total price with other choices could result in great savings overall.
What Airbnb tries to do is trick you into thinking you are saving money on a property because their initial quote shows no hidden fees. After comparing direct rates to those on airbnb, booking direct was around 10% cheaper each time. If you weekend reservation is $1000, you’ll save close to $100 just by booking direct instead of Airbnb. In addition, Airbnb is not authorized to charge taxes in the state of Ohio. This means that after paying in full for your reservation on Airbnb, your Airbnb host will have to collect an extra 13% State of Ohio Tax. Once again, it is always better to book direct.
