Airbnb has rolled out a major update to its app. With this app, you can find places to stay around the world, from rooms in people’s homes to private homes in the most remote places. To find these sites, the search function has been expanded with categories, such as “Beach”, “Luxury”, “Farms” and “Private”.
It is now also possible to split accommodation. If Airbnb can’t find a home for the duration of the vacation, you can receive a proposal to split the nights over multiple homes.
Also new is AirCover, to protect users from scams. For example, the user is offered a refund or a decent replacement if the owner cancels the reservation within a month before the trip, or the property does not match the advertisement or you unexpectedly end up in front of a closed door.
AirCover is free. It also includes a phone number that can always be called if guests feel unsafe.
