In case you have friends that are stuck somewhere due to the closed airspace over Europe, have them check out AirBnB! Fantastic resource with affordable and cool paces to stay!
Bad link on ‘Airbed and Breakfast’ Tina ;-)
I believe this is the correct list.
Just noticed, sorry about that. Fixed.
TERRIBLE WEBSITE..I WOULD SUGGEST NOT TO USE IT!!
EXCELLENT WEB SITE…HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!
This is a great resource. My girlfriend and I found an apartment in Paris for New Years last year and could not have been happier with the place…http://www.airbnb.com/rooms/9474?price=88.2552&r%5Bcity%5D=Paris&r%5Bcountry%5D=FR&r%5Blat%5D=48.8566667&r%5Blng%5D=2.3509871&r%5Bprecision%5D=city&r%5Bseo_city%5D=paris&r%5Bseo_other%5D=fr&r%5Bstate%5D=Ile-de-France
Looks like Flickr.
Beware of Airbnb!
This site has taken off like wild fire but be aware of the risks. Behind the pretty facade there’s little real structure or organisation. They do not offer any sort of protection and are not interested in helping resolve problem situations. And problem situations will come up believe me, in which case you are on your own. I have had a terrible experience with them. Following a failed reservation I was left out nearly $1000 and Airbnb just walked away. Be aware of what you’re getting into. These people are just out to make money on your back.
USE AT YOUR OWN RISK.
I’m a journalist for Fast Company magazine and am writing a story about “sharing” startups like AirBnB. I’m looking to speak with people who have had both positive and negative experiences. Can you email me at [email protected]? I’d like to hear about your experience with AirBnB. Thanks! Danielle
