Airbnb and Book have become a major tool to book a hotel, hostel, guest house or apartment all around the world. Whatever destination may pop up in your mind, it can be found on both platforms.
Of course, they are not all the same. There are some differences. Booking offers hotels, hostels, apartments but also rent-a-car and flight tickets. To put it like that, Booking is for families, personal, party holiday and business trips with a package of services.
Airbnb, on the other hand, offers apartments/houses, which, in most cases, are owned by a private person. They offer their homes for rent for a short period of time. Since this type of accommodation is more preferred for a family stay, they may not be yet so popular for business trips.
Another difference, and a major one I would say, is when it comes to the fees. Booking charges only the host whereas Airbnb has fees for both hosts and guests.
For you, as a host, this doesn`t make much of a difference so you can advertise your apartment not only on Airbnb, but also on Booking.
Before you make the final decision on one of the platforms, there are a few pre-steps you need to follow. Here they are!
