I have a question as a guest this time.
for this place :https://www.airbnb.se/rooms/16384665?s=4GBlM0Xn
We first contacted in direct and we got a price for 5 persons as 80 dollars (2 double and one single room) but it was cheaper to book on air bnb 49 dollars. Can we except any difference with the air bnb booking compared to the direct booking ? (I guess they can t ask us for extra money when we are coming or put us all in one room?)
edit: we booked for the week before 6 nights with a proprety and the direct place price was higher compared to booking.com (where I get cashback), I don’t understand them…
I am not quite sure I understand your question. Are you saying you booked directly at one price and then saw it advertised at a cheaper price on BNB and booking.com and are wondering if you can ask them to have your accommodation at the cheaper price?
As one of the reviews say, they don’t really know what they are doing yet. Maybe the direct price is higher because they are including the price of insurance, credit card fees, website hosting,etc. When you book on airbnb you get what ever is listed. The pictures and description on airbnb are terrible and I wouldn’t stay there because I feel that I don’t know what I’m getting. If there is a big difference between what you see on their website and what you see on airbnb then there might be some issues. I was looking at the listing in the language you posted (Norwegian?) and didn’t look in English so don’t know what amenities you are entitled to.
