Whether you’re an experienced traveler or this is your first trip, there always seems to be an ongoing argument about whether renting a hotel or an Airbnb is the better option. In reality, it is down to personal choice, but using an Airbnb is easier – and much cheaper.
It may be considered a bit of a risk, especially by people who have never done it before, but there are far too many benefits to blame entirely on a lack of desire to try something new.
There are additional advantages if you desire to travel to Europe. The continent is extremely popular for tourists from all over the world, and as such, the argument between Airbnb and hotels varies greatly from nation to country.
If you’re looking for a European adventure on a tight budget, travel to Tirana in Albania or Skopje in Macedonia, where Airbnbs cost an average of £27 and £28 per night, respectively, while hotels cost £36 and £33 per night. Croatia also has some gorgeous Airbnb rentals that you may book, making it a worthwhile trip to make.
Now, before settling on an Airbnb rental, consider the following six essential features that should be offered to you.
Strong Internet Connection
WiFi is an essential part of our daily lives and most people feel a bit lost without it. You will need it to update your social media accounts, Facetime friends and family, read reviews of local restaurants and look up maps to nearby attractions. It is also essential if you are working remotely. So before renting a place make sure it offers strong Wifi, with a signal that reaches all the rooms and has no connectivity problems.
If you are a digital nomad and need to get a lot of work done online while you are on the road. Sitting on a bed or couch with a laptop causes neck and back discomfort after a while, so having a more ergonomically friendly place to sit and work is really convenient.
It can be as simple as a desk, chair, and table in the corner of the room. Anywhere you can sit up and work at your computer to be more productive.
A Fully Equipped Kitchen
One of the primary reasons travelers choose to stay in an Airbnb is the convenience of having a kitchen. Being able to prepare your own meals saves money and enhances the experience. As a result, it’s critical to ensure that you have enough basic kitchen equipment to produce most meals.
These are a few of the essentials to look for in an Airbnb kitchen:
Oil for cooking: It’s needed to cook pretty much anything, and guests shouldn’t need to buy it themselves.
Salt and Pepper: A low-cost necessity that makes a significant difference when cooking in your apartment.
Garbage Bags: If you cook a lot, you’ll need a lot of these.
Kettle for tea: As a guest, you are not required to boil water in a pot on the stove for a cup of tea.
Reverse osmosis system: A reverse osmosis system is ideal if you want the cleanest water possible at the touch of a tap, whether you are using untreated well water or city water.
Scissors: This is useful for cutting through difficult packing.
Toilet paper is an absolute necessity in any facility. If you want your Airbnb to feel like a hotel, make sure that all of the bathrooms include shampoo, conditioner, body wash, hand soap, and lotion. These are provided by hotels and should be included with your Airbnb stay.
Make sure that you have a set of drawers, a closet, or a wardrobe to unpack your suitcases into. You need a place to put your stuff in and that will help you to stay less messy and enjoy the visit more.
It is critical that your Airbnb includes a home safe so that you have a secure place to put your personal stuff and don’t have to carry everything with you when you go out.
These are just a few pointers to help you enjoy your Airbnb experience, but keep an eye out for items that are particularly important to you.
