Colorado Springs Visitors Find New Ways to Save Money and Stay More Comfortably

Airbnb superhost Tony Semadeni shares 4 tips for family travel to Colorado Springs and how booking an entire home rental for a one-night stay is not like booking with a hotel, and in many instances comes at a fraction of the cost of what one would pay in a self-catering suite or a double occupancy room in a hotel.

COLORADO SPRINGS, COLORADO – If you haven’t noticed, the travel industry has many new options in temporary housing these days. Hotels are now competing with peer-to-peer rentals that have found a solid foothold in the travel market, with Airbnb.com leading the way. “For travelers, whether it be the business professional, the couple on a romantic getaway, or the family on a vacation trip, booking an entire home rental for a one-night stay in many instances comes at a fraction of the cost of what one would pay in a self-catering suite or a double occupancy room in a hotel, and the savings just compound when the stay becomes multiple days,” says Colorado Springs’ Airbnb superhost Tony Semadeni.

When you book with Airbnb there are three different room types you can book: Entire place (a whole house or apartment), Private room (a room in a hosts home), or Shared room (like in a dorm in a hostel). Probably the most important thing to look at are the reviews on the listings you are considering to book. Steve Leedom, a frequent Airbnb traveler says, “We always book entire place rentals because we like to have a living space to ourselves, plus we usually get a lot more value for our dollar than if we had booked at a hotel.”

Some see Airbnb as risky or too much work to find a good rental. Others have had a bad experience with one host and blame Airbnb for their rental choice. According to Tony Semadeni, “You need to understand, Airbnb is just a service that helps independent hosts connect with would-be travelers. It is up to the potential renter to research listings carefully to ensure their accommodation needs can be met by a particular host.” Listings with lots of great reviews drastically reduce the risk of making a bad choice for a rental. Sometimes listings that have a lot of great reviews are more expensive than rentals with none. Paying a little more for the rated one will help you choose a good rental.

Airbnb traveler Jeris Baker states, “My husband and I always look for certain things in a listing before we book any rental. Our due diligence has helped us find exactly what we want for accommodation in the places we visit. The experience we have had with Airbnb has been very positive. Here is how we find everything we want to feel like ‘home’ with Airbnb in the places we travel.”

Tips for Using Airbnb for Family Travel:

  • Use the “Kid/Family Friendly” search tool under “amenities” to help narrow down properties.  Obviously you want to do your own assessment on if the accommodations look like they will meet the needs of your family, but at least this will hopefully weed out any properties that clearly do not wish to play host to children or families

 

  • Engage in a dialog with the host. Get a sense of how aware they are of the needs of kids and families.  Check to see if there are stairs?  Are there bunk beds?  Are there breakable or fragile items displayed within reach of little fingers.

 

  • Look at photos of the listings very carefully to be on the lookout for items that will help or hinder your family’s stay. If there are rooms or areas missing from the photos, as the host to send you picture of those areas or provide additional details.

 

  • Do your research on the neighborhood. Find out where the closest parks and family friendly spaces are.  Check to see if they are located on a busy road or intersection.  Find out if there are family friendly places to eat nearby.  Identify how far you are from public transportation, if applicable.

 

The fact is peer-to-peer home rentals are not going away, and this gives travelers more options. “There is going to be more people doing home-sharing tomorrow than there are today; there is going to be more the day after that,” said Chris Lehane, Airbnb’s head of global policy and public affairs. “Hosts and Guests love Airbnb, they offer an opportunity for hosts to make money, and for travellers to save money and stay more comfortably.”

Colorado Springs Airbnb Brings Comfort and Adventure Opportunities

“For a growing number of travelers, booking accommodations through peer-to-peer temporary housing services such as Airbnb.com has saved them a significant amount of money as well as receiving a service that truly helps them feel at home on the road,” remarks Tony Semadeni, a Airbnb superhost in Colorado Springs.

COLORADO SPRINGS, COLORADO – For Americans who love travel, peer-to-peer temporary housing has opened a new door to comfort and adventure. “For a growing number of travelers, booking accomodations through services such as Airbnb.com has saved them a significant amount of money as well as receiving a service that truly helps them feel at home on the road,” remarks Tony Semadeni, a Airbnb superhost in Colorado Springs. “For travelers, whether it be the business professional, the couple on a romantic getaway, or the family on a vacation trip, booking an entire home rental for a one-night stay in many instances comes at a fraction of the cost of what one would pay in a self-catering suite or a double occupancy room in a hotel, and the savings just compound when the stay becomes multiple days.”

More Space for Less Money

Most of the time, when booking an entire place, you are buying yourself more room. “There are different options when choosing an Airbnb, but when my wife and I travel, we always pick having the entire place to ourselves. You can choose to just have a private room in someone’s home, but we like our privacy.” says Steve Leedom, a frequent Airbnb user. “We recognize booking accommodation through Airbnb takes more work than booking a hotel, but the friendships we have built with hosts and how those relationships have enriched our travel experiences make the extra work well worth doing in our opinion. The value for money for the extra space and convenience of a full kitchen is better than any hotel we have stayed in as well.”

 Priceless Amenities

Speaking from booking an entire place on Airbnb, the amenities that are included can be priceless. “Having a full kitchen at your disposal is awesome! It’s a great way to save money if you’d like to have meal or two in, specially breakfast or dinner. You can go to the market and stock up on waters, wine, and snacks. Also, most places have a washer and dryer. This may come in handy if you have younger kids, or if you don’t want to bring home a stockpile of dirty laundry,” says Jeris Baker, who’s been using Airbnb for the past three years instead of hotels.

One-on-One Interaction with The Owner

When staying in an Airbnb, you have one-on-one communication with the owner from the time you book, until the time you leave.  The owners are typically very helpful with recommendations, directions, and any information they feel may benefit you on your trip. “One of the best things about this relationship is that your host truly want you to be happy,” says Tony Semadeni. “You’re not just another customer or number. You’re a person or family who will be spending time in their home.”

Customer Reviews

Helping keep the owners honest is Airbnb’s customer review system. “Before we stay anywhere, I’m reading every review. Therefore, I feel secure with my booking decision. One of my top reasons for staying in an Airbnb over a hotel is that I feel I’m supporting a small local business. After leaving some Airbnb’s, we feel like we’re leaving friends and vow to return,” says Cathy Warner, who’s been using Airbnb for the past five years.

Airbnb Has Changed The Way We Plan Trips

Booking an Airbnb has become one of the fun parts of planning a trip. Will it have a view? Is it modern, or is it traditional? Do we have a house, condo, or cabin? The options are endless with choosing an Airbnb. It’s an adventure of its own!

The fact is peer-to-peer home rentals are not going away, and this gives travelers more options. “There is going to be more people doing home-sharing tomorrow than there are today; there is going to be more the day after that,” said Chris Lehane, Airbnb’s head of global policy and public affairs. “Hosts and Guests love Airbnb, they offer an opportunity for hosts to make money, and for travellers to save money and stay more comfortably.”

My #1 Complaint – My Clients Don’t Protect Themselves from Fraud and Cyber Crime

Everyday of the year is Christmas for the criminal in today’s cyber-world. With technology making fraud and scams look more legitimate, it’s upon everyone’s shoulders to protect themselves from both online and offline business offers.

 

Here’s my shortest bullet-point list of things to know in order for you to be proactive in protecting not only your financial assets, but your online reputation as well.

 

Internet Fraud

Scam artists in the U.S. and around the world defraud millions of people each year by using the Internet to trick victims into sending money or giving out personal information.

 

Types of Internet Fraud

Internet crime schemes target victims using various methods.

  • Internet auction fraud – This scheme involves the misrepresentation of a product advertised for sale on an Internet auction site or non-delivery of merchandise.
  • Credit card fraud – Through the unauthorized use of a credit/debit card, or card number, scammers fraudulently obtain money or property.
  • Investment fraud – This is an offer using false claims to solicit investments or loans, or providing for the purchase, use, or trade of forged or counterfeit securities.
  • Nigerian letter or “419” fraud – Named for the violation of Section 419 of the Nigerian Criminal Code, it combines the threat of impersonation fraud with a variation of an advance fee scheme in which a letter, e-mail, or fax is received by the victim.

 

Tips for Avoiding Internet Fraud

Preventative measures will assist you in being informed prior to entering into transactions over the Internet.

  • Know your seller – If you don’t know who you’re buying from online, do some research.
  • Protect your personal information – Don’t provide it in response to an e-mail, a pop-up, or a website you’ve linked to from an e-mail or web page.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has additional tips to protect yourself and your family from the various types of Internet fraud.

 

Report Internet Fraud

If you believe you’ve been a victim of Internet fraud or cyber crime, report it:

  • You can report a cyber scam or threat by filing a complaint with the Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3).

 

 

Financial Fraud

Scam artists use different types of fraud to try to trick people out of their money. Two common types of fraud are banking scams and investment scams.

 

Banking Scams

Popular banking scams include:

  • fake check scams, where a scam artist creates counterfeit checks that look legitimate, with watermarks, routing numbers, and the names of real financial institutions. They then try to deposit them in banks, use them as part of other frauds against consumers, or use them to pay companies for products or services.
  • unsolicited check fraud, where a scammer may send you a check that you didn’t have a legitimate reason to receive. Unfortunately, if you cash it, you may be authorizing the purchase of items you didn’t ask for, signing up for a loan, or something else you didn’t ask for. The Federal Trade Commission offers tips to help you avoid being a victim of these scams, and recommends what to do if you have been a victim.

 

Investment Scams

Investment scams prey on your hope to earn interest or a return on investment on the amount of money that you invest. The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) offers overviews of many common investment frauds, and tips to avoid being a victim.

If you are the victim of an investment fraud, you can file a complaint with the SEC or with your state’s securities administrator.

 

 

Charity Scams

Not all organizations that claim to be charities or help people are reputable. Some scam artists set up fake organizations, taking advantage of the public’s generosity immediately after a tragedy or major disaster. Some tips to help you detect common charity scam tactics:

  • Check out the charity before you give with the attorney general or the Better Business Bureau.
  • Don’t be pressured to give to an organization.
  • Don’t assume that you can get a tax deduction for donating to an organization. Use the IRS’s database of 501(c)3 organizations to find out if  it has this status.
  • Verify the name. Fake charities often choose names that are similar to well established charities or use keywords that elicit sympathy, such as “children”, “cancer”, or “disaster relief”.
  • Don’t send cash. Pay with a check or credit card.

If you suspect charity fraud, report it to the Federal Trade Commission. Although the Do Not Call Registry doesn’t apply to charities, you can ask an organization not to contact you again.
