What to expect: Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals

Unfortunately, Airbnb doesn't offer Black Friday or Cyber Monday deals. That's because rates are set by each homeowner, not Airbnb. The same goes for similar rental sites, including HomeAway and Vrbo. But don't let that deter you if you're looking to book a cheap stay somewhere.

Airbnb typically has coupons for first-timer travellers and if you're willing to stay in a shared property you might be able to find cheaper prices compared to hotels.

  • Hotels.com. This site offered an extra 8% off all bookings made on last Black Friday, plus up to 60% off select hotels.
  • Accor: This hotel chain has offered up to 40% off bookings in past Black Friday sales.

Vacation rentals during COVID-19

Be sure to follow the latest state and territory government rules if you're travelling and staying in a rental. You might want to look for rentals that offer self check-in, so you can avoid physical interaction with the host.

Airbnb provides hosts with a set of enhanced cleaning protocols with step-by-step instructions for sanitising between guests.
