My family uses Airbnb to rent out our home when we need to go out of town (taking a daughter to college, visiting family). It enables us to make these trips by offsetting the cost of such trips. We typically do not have the funds for this or for vacations, and the ability to rent out our home this way allows us to remain connected to family.
