So I went to Canada with my family this summer. We were driving from Vernon, BC to Vancouver and we didn't have a place to stay in Vancouver so we decided to book by air BNB. We knew that it was easy and the app was amazing. Plus we would get our own home and a huge place to stay. But there was a small problem with this, my parents were a little skeptical because they hadn't used the app before and we all know how Indian parents are when it comes to online shopping or online payments. So my parents thought that we could ask the homestay lady to allow us to pay by cash when we reached the spot. She was really sweet and she told us that she'd keep the house on hold for us.
