If there’s one service/website which literally disrupted the accommodation business, it’s Airbnb. When you think about it, the idea is brilliant: everyone can be a hotel! As long as you have empty rooms – or an empty house – you can start making money by renting them out.

Like Couchsurfing, you can also have the local house experience and like hostels, you have access to a kitchen which makes your trip slightly cheaper.
