AirBNB discount code EUR20 off

Code is: BUSINESS_PUNK
URL: https://www.airbnb.com/
Min. booking value: EUR80

Not often does one get a generous discount code at AirBNB.

Re: AirBNB discount code EUR20 off

I have not tried this but another code ( SMW_COLOGNE ) apparently gives you a better value of EUR25 off. Am unsure if it works outside Germany as well.

Re: AirBNB discount code EUR20 off

How to get a discount on AirBNB for privately owned vacation apartments or houses/villas etc?

Find something you like on AirBNB, then search for the name of the place or some text in the advert on Google. There is a very high chance you'll find the same property advertised elsewhere and it will be at least 12% cheaper. You can often even find the owner's website.

Why? Simply because AirBNB charges about 12% commission plus they take another 3% for payments. Also if you cancel, AirBNB take their fee in full, the guest receives a refund minus the AirBNB fee and the owner receives ZERO.

Unfortunately these sites are becoming popular and are trying to market private properties like a hotel on a nightly basis. To be fair, these websites must charge something to make a profit and there is nothing wrong with a commission model. A few years ago this would be 3 or 4% but now they are becoming more dominating.

A discount code is therefore simply a discount on the fees.

Another worrying feature is that there is no verification that an advertiser even owns a property. I created an advert today and although it checked my Facebook page and "verified" my scanned ID automatically by software, they have no idea if the photos and description I provided even belong to me. I could have created an advert for any property I wanted. Scary stuff!!

Sadly the OP fell out with the forum (ex mod) & has not posted since February.

Re: AirBNB discount code EUR20 off

It was more of a general money saving tip rather than a reply to the OP.

Must be an in house joke.

I've no idea who the OP was, I was merely doing some research into some property websites and my search led me back to this forum. I posted in a thread which seemed the most appropriate as I know many people on here book their accomodation through such websites. If you are looking for a room or hotel then the Airbnb would seem a sensible place to book but I'm amazed that people pay such prices for an apartment or house. Another website I looked at added 20% as their booking commission plus the payment fee.
