When shopping for places to stay on Airbnb and HomeAway, always ask for a discount. Someone asked me the other day if they should ask for a discount when one is already listed. My response was, “Heck Yeah!”. Always ask for a discount. Since I started asking, I have only been turned down once.
Here’s a tip. Kill them with kindness. There is no reason to be brash. Below is an example of how I ask for a discount.
It works like magic. I always end with, “I completely understand if you do not.” This is how I see it. Owners would rather have some money than no money. Seems logical, right?
It is usually easier to secure a discount on last minute bookings or on long term reservations. That doesn’t mean you have to wait until the last minute to book. I have secured discounts months in advance. Good luck and happy discount hunting.
