9 Airbnb Pads You Can Get Right Now Suitable For All Budgets

Some Cheap, Some Not So Cheap


First off: What Does Airbnb And Dubai Tourism’s Tie-Up Mean For You?

We all at some point have browsed through Airbnb’s offerings. Sometimes we’ve done it to find a home when on our travels and other times it’s been an act of curiosity. The good news now though is the listings website and Dubai’s Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing have signed an agreement to make things a lot simpler. And here's what you should know...

1. It helps Dubai residents rent out their homes with a law in place to regulate the practice. 

Who doesn’t love a little extra money each week?


2. It’s a pretty simple (or so it sounds) process where homeowners can apply for a licence provided they meet the criteria. 

Let’s hope you live in a place you can proudly call ‘home’.


3. It allows those renting a property to list it as well. All that’s required is a ‘no objection’ certificate from the landlord and a DTCM checklist in place. 

Whoever thought this only applied to the rich and famous, think again!


4. And our fave one…it brings more tourists to the city. 

In short: more people to appreciate the Burj Khalifa and Burj Al Arab.


So the next time you have friends of friends visiting, these are the spaces they could crash at...
