I’ve used AirBnb both in the United States and abroad and have had a great experience each time that I’ve used it.
The hosts have always been very professional and the homes were impeccably well-kept and exactly as I had expected from the pictures.
RelayRides is a relatively new service that is a similar service to Airbnb but for cars.
You can either loan out your own car or borrow someone else’s car and in some cities you can even pick up cars directly from the airport. To learn more about their airport rental services click here. I was pleasantly surprised to find that they seem to have this service available in most major airports around the U.S.
I think that it’s a really interesting concept and while I haven’t personally used this service, I would be interested in using it in the future if I would need to rent a car for a short period of time while I’m traveling in the U.S.
Have you tried either Airbnb or RelayRides? What has been your experience with them? Feel free to leave a comment?
Are there any other similar travel resources or products that you would recommend?
