Final Thoughts

Airbnb has made it so easy and simple to change the website settings to best fit your needs.

If you are traveling to India, for example, the option to change currency will make it very easy for you to see how much a reservation will cost in not only your own currency, but in the Indian Rupee as well. 

The same goes for the option to change the language of the website. Without question, Airbnb has created a user-friendly platform no matter where you are from or what language you speak.
