There are a handful of companies out there now that are disrupting traditional business models by using their own unique technologies. Airbnb is certainly one of these companies as they are currently changing the way folks look at their travel plans.
Airbnb and its technology connects property owners with folks in search of lodging. Essentially, Airbnb is removing both the hotel and the travel agent from the equation of finding quality lodgings across the world, while directly connecting owners and renters.
Airbnb users feel a sense of community with the other users, and rely on ratings and reviews when making their decisions.
Airbnb is also known for its slick technology focused on providing great photos of the property, and making it as easy as possible for travelers to explore lodging options across the world from their smartphone!
Here's how to do it:
Open the Airbnb app or website.
Enter your filters for the search: select your location, dates of travel, how many bedrooms, and if you want a pool, or washer and dryer.
Review your lodging options! They range from a shared room, a private room with a live-in host, or the whole home. Use the filters to narrow down the options.
Use the map to help you see where the rooms/homes exist in relation to your activities.
Read the reviews—it’s up to you to find an owner you’re comfortable either staying with, or interacting with.
Look up other opportunities: Airbnb also offers experiences, such as hikes, yoga, and concerts, available near the area you’re searching.
The trainers are so friendly, and helpful. They certainly have lots of patience and knowledge. They make you feel so comfortable asking questions you would not dare ask your family to show you again how to do. They are always welcome in my home, sometimes I hate to see them go!
GroovyTek did a great job! My trainer was on time, professional and she solved my slow computer. Great job, GroovyTek! I will use your services again.
I'm very pleased with my session today with GroovyTek. My trainer was able to fix both my computer and my printer (problems with both) and instructed me on how to correct the issues if they occurred in the future. We also made plans for my next session. I find GroovyTek sessions extremely helpful and convenient since they are in my home.
It is comforting to know if you have technical problems there is a Hands On source to get help. These trainers listen to your problems, find solutions and work with you until you understand the solution, their patience is outstanding. This is a great way to not only solve problems but to learn about the ever-changing world of technology; there are class presentations, small group gatherings or one-on-one in your home with kind, friendly, people.
We have had several help sessions with a GroovyTek trainer. WE could not be more pleased. My trainer takes all our questions and while answering types up his answers so even after he leaves, we can refer to his notes. I would recommend GroovyTek to any of my friends or family without hesitation. BTW, ALL the employees at this firm are extrememly knowledgeable and friendly.
Very impressed with my trainer’s ability to provide thorough explanations and demonstrations. I have confidence now in knowing how to manage my photos, videos, and documents. I received my money’s worth of valuable instruction.
I was just delighted and on my way to practice new found skills. My trainer was on time, friendly, knowledgeable, and very patient with this little old lady (age 78). I didn't have to take notes to remember - he recorded it on his tablet and sent me a copy to download so I have my instructions, step by step. So pleased with the service and the follow-up.
I have always had the best computers that Apple offered, but the problem was that I never knew how to use them. Thanks to my GroovyTek trainer, my tech skills have increased exponentially and I am feeling more competent and confident with each lesson.
I think your service is great! I have used it, and I booked 2 sessions for my 83-year old husband who bought himself a new Ipad, but didn't know how to use it. He's been ill, so it was a great help that you came to the house. Thanks for the service.
Outstanding trianers with expertise and a lot of patience at a fair price. I have used them for two years and they have given me a much better understanding of the in's and outs of how to use many aspects of my computer. It is a pleasure to have them come to my home and work on my own computer problems.
I was so pleased to find GroovyTek. Although I am pretty tech savvy in some areas there are others where I need help. GroovyTek has helped me fill in that gap of information. I made an appointment to help me sync my devices and also help me learn how to organize my photos. The trainer was knowledgeable and able to explain things very clearly.
My tech from GoovyTek has been terrific. He is patient, knowledgeable, and explains things really well. I enjoyed learning new tools and features on my smart phone and computer. They have made doing things a lot easier and more enjoyable.
I have had two great sessions with GroovyTek and finally I have learned to use my smartphone calendar! I'm looking forward to my next session.
A wonderful service in every aspect from calling in to set up an appointment with GroovyTek and follow ups as well as the fabulous help, patience and expertise of the tech who came to the house to work with me with my computer issues. I would highly recommend GrooveyTek for all your computer needs! Thanks so much!
Today was my first experience with GroovyTek and it was extraordinary. I learned so much over the course of the hour AND as importantly fixed the problem I was having. The trainer was intelligent and friendly. All support was given in a very collaborative way. I am looking forward to this partnership.
