Airbnb Wishlist Contest by Indiblogger

So Airbnb is a new website to list or book accommodations all over the globe. Signing in was pretty easy, as it lets you log in via facebook or G+.

I love the homepage and how it says WELCOME HOME- Rent unique places to stay from local hosts in 190+ countries.

You can click on 'How it works' and check out the easy steps-

I got so excited, and have 2-3 travel plans coming up next year, so thought I should totally check out the listings!

This is pretty close to the entire 'foreign exchange' program since you can stay as a house guest too!

My first search was for Goa, thought I should check Indian listings before anything else.

You can apply filters like whether you want the entire place or just a room (or even if you are a hosteler and ready to share the room). Put in your dates, budget, etc and choose the area from the map. Such a wide variety of homes and pretty places for rent, why would you want to check-in to a typical hotel?

My next visit was Jaipur, where I plan to go next year too. So amazed to see vacation homes for rent in a small city like Jaipur too! P.S. Do take a look at my wishlist!

Next I checked listings in London, Maldives and Dubai, three places soo on my wishlist to travel sometime soon. The low pricing has really encouraged me to even consider and give it a serious thought. All the travel agencies always show hefty pricings for vacations at exotic places like Maldives, so I was thrilled to see such reasonable options!

So my top 5 fav listings are Goa, Jaipur, London, Maldives & Dubai. Why, because these are all beautiful travel-worthy places! I love to travel and am sure my wishlist is only to grow. I hope to travel to all the places in 2015!

Every listing has a complete detail along with original images, space, accommodation, amenities, house rules, pricing and availability. What more can you ask for?

My only concern probably would be safety when you travel alone and stay at someone's place. But then to answer that, most of the listings have user reviews, which you can take into consideration before planning the trip!

You can also contact the host, and who knows, be great buddies once you meet 'em!

And before I forget, if you have multiple properties, or a huge place with rooms to sublet, you can totally list your property and start earning!

Also, do register on Airbnb using my referral link to get a flat credit of Rs. 1545/-! That means you could actually have a 1 night stay complimentary! Could it get any better?
