How to Find Available Rooms from the Airbnb App

Traveling? The Airbib app allows you to find a quick spare room to stay in that's cheaper than a hotel. You can even book and pay for the room right from your phone. Here's how:

Step 1: Download the app for your phone – it’s free, so you don’t have to worry about costs. To check for available rooms near you, open up the app and hit the search button at the bottom of the screen. Type in where you’re looking to find accommodation.

Step 2: From here you should have an array of available properties that you can browse. Some of the pictures will have icons on them that mark them as “verified” - this means that the pictures are accurate representations of the condition of the property. These are your best options although a lack of the verified icon does not mean the property isn't good.

Step 3: Tap a property you are interested in to get more details about it. You should see more pictures of the property as well as the price, a button to book your stay there, and a way to contact the host. Payments for your rental are done through Airbnb’s payment system.

Step 4: Look over the property information and see if it’s the right fit for you. If it is, go through the steps to book and pay for it.

Recap: The Airbnb app allows you to look for non-hotel properties that you can stay at in any given area. You can book and pay for your stay somewhere all from the app which gives you more freedom when it comes to spur-of-the-moment travel decisions.
