    Questions about Airbnb

    by RodolfoBrasil Online Now May 2, 2015 at 10:29 AM

    I wish to start using the services of Airbnb and I have read enough on the subject. However I have some uncertainty and "insecurity", since it always deals with a physical and not a legal entity. I know of cases of cancellations at the last minute and other disorders, which ultimately undermine the credibility of the service.

    Does anyone have a long experience in using this website?

    Already, thank you.

    by marietatita Online Now Apr 22, 2008 at 7:33 AM

    I´m afraid to travel to Brasil, because I know that Brasil isn´t a safe country.
    Where are the most dangerous places in San Paulo?

    What do you recommend to me for food in Brasil? and Would you give me the names of interesting restaurants to visit in San Paulo?

    August Vacation in Sao Paolo

    by desmoni Online Now Jun 10, 2005 at 12:17 AM

    I am a student on summer holiday. 4 other girls and I were going to Spain, but things have switched and we are looking to go to SP Aug. 4-12. Does anyone recommend as place to stay that is at max65USD/night. Also, we are looking for non-tourist, chill things to do that don't require lots of money because we have1000 dollars to spent together. Flights are not a problem, it is just an issue of place to stay, food, visas(I hear US citizens need one), and activities. We are open to all suggestions. Also, is it feasible to make a day trip to Rio? Thx
