which card is best for Airbnb in case of issues/dispute/cancellation?
CSP or Amex?

(or is this the wrong thread for this question)?

Booked a house on Air BNB last week, took a quick look today just to see if the houses in the neighborhood are going up or down in pricing and I see my house listed with my dates from a different owner (broker) for $1000 more!! I messaged them and they said oops and blocked out the dates on the second listing. DO they do this purposely to see if they get a better price and then cancel mine?  I am happy I checked, is this something that should be reported?

I saw this also when looking for rentals in oralndo. I was never sure if they were actually the same apartment or just very similar in layout. I didnt really check that well.

Well double booking is nothing new in orlando, i just wasnt really on the lookout because my dates were a bit random. Its crazy airbnb lets this go on. Its one thing if its on different websites but to do it on airbnb is chutzpa.

I have, i always messaged the owner about the properties to get a feel with who i was dealing with, but thats not israel specific, read the reviews etc. The only thing i did israel specific was look into the location, make sure its an israeli neighborhood, not arab.

Do you have a large party, as in many guests, or a large party as in many guests that are coming to party? If they write explicitly that they do not want parties (noise, mess, etc), they often will check cameras, and even if they dont have any inside they will have exterior especially if theres a pool etc. If you are just going over the guest limit IDK

Checked into an airbnb in Israel yesterday and so far really unhappy with the unit. Has anyone cancelled mid stay due to unit not being as advertised?
We can move into another airbnb locally (more expensive because last minute) but I would like to recoup some costs of the last few days as well as receive a full refund for all the future nights.

Staples currently has a deal on $100 Airbnb egift cards for $90, limit 3. If you use Chase Ink, that's a pretty good deal.

How does one deal with accomodation on shabbos? Contactless check-in with electronic smartscreens requiring a pin to open the door is becoming the norm. And then in the hallways, there are automatic light sensors.

Light sensors can be blocked or might be פסיק רישא דלא ניחא ליה.

For doors I message hosts in advance if they can accommodate a physical key. Sometimes still have to take out battery.

Any nice homes that are affordable within 3-4 from nyc ?
Anything nice these days seems to be super expensive.
