Many of us are avoiding travel during the pandemic.
But if you have to shelter in place under quarantine once you get to your destination, wouldnât you rather do it in an environment that at least seems more within your control?
If the choice is between a hotel where you must trust your experience to a faceless corporation or a local host you can talk to through homestay sites like Airbnb and Vrbo, the latter may be the better option for these times (provided you donât violate their party guidelines).
Whatever option you choose, credit card issuers now reward homestays with points and cash back in the same way theyâve long doled out rewards for hotels and other travel expenses.
These are the best cards on the market for homestays like Airbnb.
