Hello, how do people get Airbnb discounts? I can't find any discount codes. They used to send out vouchers by email but nothing for a while. Anyone know of any prepaid gift cards that save some money?

    It's very rare to see discounts Airbnb discounts these days although I don't tend to use them due to their business structure, particularly in relation to hidden fees and that a completely unregulated company is keeping money from the time of booking instead of a few days before.

    That said, the time one I have stayed in a property they broker (not booked by me) the experience was positive one.

    It's very often possible within a few minutes of searching to find the same property cheaper on other booking sites, so this could act as an effective discount :)

    You are right, putting the hotel into Google brings up lots of comparisons which usually cut out the fee charged by Airbnb. 

    Sometimes I forget the smallest things to save money! I've used Airbnb very positively before just trying to do my trip on a budget. 

    I booked a £8.42 flight last night, got £8.40 cashback so paid 2p return to Italy :D

    Try the cheapest private room with good reviews that meets your requirements on Booking, you won't go far wrong. If you have a Wizz account you can get money off tickets back in addition. I've done this for years and it's always worked well.
