6 Airbnb Alternatives to Book  Your Next Dream Getaway

By Tamara Kraus

Airbnb’s become a household name at this point, but did you know there are actually a ton of other places to book a one-of-a-kind vacation rental? With many of us travel deprived, getting antsy to go somewhere besides our living room, and feeling more at ease leaving our homes—many of us are looking for alternatives to crowded hotels.


You can find a bunch of impressive, spacious (or tiny houses, if you prefer), and activity-filled vacation rentals around the globe. From cozy cabins to magical treehouses and quaint cottages, you won’t have trouble finding the ultimate vacation spot.


If you want something a little more exciting than a grungy RV, head to Outdoorsy—it’s the destination for RV, camper, and trailer rentals that are anything but average.
