Airbnb has revolutionised globetrotting by giving everyone access to more intimate places to crash around the world. Here’s how to get more out of those lesser-known app features.

Pay half price (for now)

Not ready to pay in full? For rentals over a set amount, and booked two weeks in advance, the app’s Pay Less Up Front feature lets you put down a deposit (usually 50%), with the remainder of the rental fee due closer to your check-in date.

A longer payment window could come in handy if you need time to collect funds from everyone else in your party. And according to Airbnb research, nearly 40% of travellers have been short changed by their friends – don’t let that be you!

Art now, tapas later.
