20 European Countries Where Airbnb is Cheaper Than a Hotel!

When it comes time to book accommodation for your European getaway, one of the first decisions to make is whether to book a European hotel or an Airbnb. Should you go with a good ol’ fashioned hotel room (hello room service!), or do you opt for a quirky Airbnb, providing a unique travel experience?

If you’re travelling on a budget, or simply want to save some cash for the fun stuff (e.g. food, attractions…cocktails!) then you’ll find this research Vouchercloud has done very enticing! They’ve found the top 20 countries in Europe where you’ll save a lot of money opting for an Airbnb to rest your head over a European hotel.


Imagine spending your mornings lounging around in this magical living room! Not only is this a home away from home, but also provides the perfect backdrop for all your insta pics 😉
