What should I expect from Airbnb's 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.
