Thanks for Choosing Airbnb!
Founded in 2008, Airbnb now has over 1.5 million listings in more than 190 countries across the globe. It has revolutionized the way people travel by offering literally millions of new, unique, and traditional options for places to stay, instead of just the standard fare of hostels, hotels, and resorts.
Bridging the gap between couch surfing, house-swapping, and the digital age, Airbnb allows people to rent out their home or apartment with the satisfying ease of minimal online interaction, making it a quick and direct process for those interested in renting as well.
Of course, along with any novel idea comes the criticism and problems. Naturally, while renting out your residence to complete strangers, there are bound to be more than a few horror stories, and where best to turn than Reddit?
