I’m always fascinated by the beauty and coziness of those homes when I’m browsing through the Airbnb website. My own experience has been pleasant so far, but some of my friends are still concerned about the safety, cleanliness and facilities of the beautiful homes. 

 

  Is Airbnb safe? Here is what you need to know to avoid disappointment or even worse, have a haunting experience. These are the 6 useful tips that I usually follow whenever I stay in an Airbnb.

1.Perform a thorough search while booking the home or room that you want

As a guest, you can leverage on the search filters, such as price, home type and amenities to find your preferred home or room. Do also check through the host’s profile and listing or experience description thoroughly. pay extra attention to the amenities, house rules or trip requirements as well as cancellation policy. Miscommunication or conflicts often happen when the guests do not read the details carefully.

2.Read through the ratings and reviews

It is always advisable to browse through the feedback from previous guests to help you determine if the room or home is the right fit for you. Usually the authentic feedback from the previous guests will provide you a sneak peek on the cleanliness and accuracy. I normally avoid renting Airbnb rooms or home which have either no rating or bad reviews. Better careful than sorry!

3.Proactively ask questions and seek answers

I find it useful to ask the potential host any concerns or questions that I have about their home before I decide to book. It is very important that you contact your host to coordinate about the check-in process and stay in touch throughout your trip.  My usual concern to book an Airbnb is to have a kitchen equipped with basic cooking utensils so I can cook with my families while travelling.  I have a great experience with an amazing host while travelling to Melaka, the host has provided me a complete guide to hunt for food and tourist attraction!

4.Get everything done in the Airbnb platform

I usually keep my personal information and perform my transaction in the Airbnb platform,  from communication to booking and making payment. When undesirable incidents happen, I have proofs to file complaints to Airbnb. Some hosts might ask me to wire money, provide credit card information or even pay the host directly,. However I usually keep all my booking activity within the Airbnb platform.

5.Perform a safety check

The moment when I have received the key from the host upon arrival to the room or home, I will usually check all the relevant amenities and safety features. I will immediately let the host know when there is any broken or dysfunctional amenity . This is very important to avoid any conflict after checking out.  Do not hesitate to ask about the emergency contact such as the nearby clinics. I find the information very helpful because I had experienced a horrible food-poisoning once!
