Hotels are Less Cost Effective than Rentals – Airbnb

A recent report from Airbnb revealed that the federal government, which, throughout 2017, spent USD3.1 billion with hotels, and almost USD2 billion of it with just five chains, could save taxpayers USD413 million by staying with Airbnb.

According to the report, money spent housing federal employees at Airbnb listings while travelling on official business would go directly to taxpayers who share their space on Airbnb.

In addition, the federal government would also more directly support US communities.

There is certainly plenty of punch in the arguments from both sides.

The fact that the debate between hotel and rental property has gotten to this point sure validates the opportunity to broaden your options.

Business Insider conducted a 2016 study that showed Airbnb was significantly cheaper than hotels across the northern US and Europe.
