“Airbnb is about so much more than just renting space, it’s about people and experiences. At the end of the day, what we're trying to do is bring the world together. You're not getting a room, you're getting a sense of belonging." – Brian Chesky, Founder of Airbnb
Founded in August 2008, Airbnb is a website where people can list, discover and book unique accommodation all around the world. When the dynamic trio, Brian Chesky, Nathan Blecharczyk and Joe Gebbia introduced to the world the idea of people renting rooms in a stranger’s home over the internet, everyone thought that it was a crazy idea. But they managed to convince people to do just that! Today, with a total of over 40 million guests and over 1,500 000 listings globally, Airbnb offers more lodging than any other hotel chain in the world.
No matter if you are looking for an apartment for your one night stay, or be one with nature on a treehouse for a week, or even a private villa to host your whole extended family for a fortnight, Airbnb has taken travel to a whole new level.

For any changes, cancellations, and refunds
In case of any cancellation, changes, and refund, each space on Airbnb has its own cancellation policy, set by its host. Do review the cancellation policies before making a reservation for in case of an unexpected situation, you might still be able to cancel your listing and receive a refund (based on the host). The cancellation policy can be found in the prices section of the listing. To make a change on your confirmed reservation, you can use the alteration request under ‘Your Trips’. Your host will need to accept your changes in order for it to be confirmed and if you do not receive a response, the original reservation will remain the same. Refunds depend on the cancellation policy your host has selected for their listing. But some situations that are outside the power of the cancellation policy are the following:
- Host cancellations
- Extenuating circumstances
- Cases covered by Airbnb’s Guest Refund Policy
If you are given a refund, do keep in mind that it might take some time for the money to arrive in your account.
