I have booked with airbnb so far in 4 of the states we are going to, it has worked out a heck of a lot cheaper and you get your own ktchen and t/v, wifi and a lot of other things that you don't get in hotels. I mean so far I have not stayed in 1 as we are not travelling until mid Sept to end Oct but I will make some recomendations or otherwise once we have done the trip. So I am hoping it all goes without too much of a hitch. But the reviews that I have read on the site from people who have apparently used this service appears to be pretty good. We are hoping to go to Europe next year, health being well and if it turns out okay this time we will definately do it again. I shall comment after the trip though.
