Stay For Free at an Airbnb

How to Stay at an Airbnb for Free with Bunking.com

Have you ever planned a trip to a convention, a Spartan event, a concert, or just a city adventure, and found yourself overwhelmed by accommodation costs? What if we told you that you could stay at an Airbnb for free? With Bunking.com, you can turn your travel plans into a shared adventure that covers your accommodation expenses. Here’s how you can do it.

Step 1: Rent an Airbnb

First, find and rent an Airbnb that suits your needs. Whether you’re heading to a bustling city for a concert, a serene location for a sporting event, or attending a convention, choose a place with multiple rooms or beds to maximize your rental opportunities.

Step 2: List Your Adventure on Bunking.com

Once you’ve secured your Airbnb, it’s time to list your adventure on Bunking.com. Here’s a simple guide to get you started:

  1. Create a Listing: Go to Bunking.com and create a new listing for your adventure. Provide detailed information about the event or reason for the trip, the location, and the dates.

  2. Set Your Price: You have the flexibility to set your pricing based on various factors:

    • Early Bird Pricing: Offer discounted rates for the first few bookings to attract initial interest.
    • General Pricing: Set standard rates for the rest of the available slots.
    • Room or Bed Pricing: You can get specific with your pricing. For example, a private room with a king bed might have a higher rate than a shared room with two bunk beds.
  3. Detail the Accommodation: Clearly describe the accommodation setup. Mention the type of rooms available, the number of beds, and any amenities included. Make sure to highlight the perks of staying at your Airbnb, such as proximity to the event venue, local attractions, or special features of the property.

Step 3: Promote Your Listing

To maximize your chances of filling up all the rooms and covering your Airbnb costs, promote your listing:

  • Share with Your Group: Use your social media channels, group chats, and event-specific forums to spread the word about your adventure.
  • Leverage Bunking.com Traffic: Bunking.com has its own user base looking for unique travel experiences. Your listing will be visible to these potential guests who are keen on shared adventures.

Step 4: Enjoy Your Free Stay

As people book the rooms or beds in your Airbnb, you’ll start to cover the rental cost. By the time you’ve filled all the available spaces, you could end up staying at your Airbnb for free. Plus, you get to meet new people who share your interests and make your trip even more memorable.

Example Scenario

Imagine you’re heading to New York City for a major tech convention. You rent a spacious Airbnb with three bedrooms:

  • Private Room with King Bed: $100 per night
  • Shared Room with Two Bunk Beds: $50 per bed per night

You list your stay on Bunking.com, setting early bird prices at $80 for the private room and $40 per bed for the first week. You share the listing on your LinkedIn, Twitter, and in tech forums related to the convention. Soon, you’ve filled all the spots, and the rental income from your guests covers your Airbnb cost entirely.


Staying at an Airbnb for free is not just a dream—it’s a practical reality with Bunking.com. By renting out rooms or beds to fellow travelers, you can offset your accommodation costs and even make some new friends along the way.
