In case you are unfamiliar with Airbnb, imagine it as a marketplace for travelers and private property owners. A traveler looking for a place to stay during travel can rent a private place instead of renting a hotel. The system makes the transactions quick and easy, so it makes Airbnb a real alternative to travelers looking to book places when travelling. Airbnb rates seem reasonable and in most cases, they are cheaper than hotel rates. Users can also select from a variety of types of places.
If you are a traveler from the Philippines, you may want to check out the recent tie-up between Smart Communications and Airbnb. Smart subscribers, both postpaid and prepaid, are entitled to Php2,500 discount on any Airbnb booking as long as you spend a minimum of Php8,000.
Availing of the Airbnb promo from Smart only requires you to text SMARTAIRBNB to 2855. You will receive a unique promo code which you will then use to book your Airbnb accommodation. The Smart-Airbnb promo runs from October 29, 2015 until January, 2016. The promo is available to first-time and previous Airbnb users but it is limited to one transaction per registered user.
Bookings for this promo has a deadline of March 31, 2016. Travel dates, on the other hand, are from October 29, 2015 to December 2016.
