6 Airbnb Tips to Make Your Next Trip A++

Foursomething years ago, my friend visited New York City from Singapore. We met up for pastrami sandwiches and somewhere along the way I asked what hotel she was staying in. But she wasn’t staying in a hotel. She was staying in someone’s home, she explained, arranged through some website. That’s insane, I remember thinking.

Fast-forward to today and I’m juggling multiple Airbnb bookings, myself: one this month for my honeymoon (please send me Lisbon recs) and another over the holidays for a getaway with my best friend (Mexico City recs, also welcome).
