It can be tricky to find your way around when you’re travelling to new locations. Now you can get to your Airbnb faster and without getting lost with what3words – the simplest way to talk about location.

what3words has divided the world into 3m x 3m squares, each with a unique 3 word address. It means that every Airbnb in the world has a 3 word address to help you reach its exact entrance easily – just like a local.

Don’t have your Airbnb’s 3 word address?

Always ask your host for a 3 word address. Simply message them saying:

“It will be easier for me to find your Airbnb if you share its 3 word address. This link will explain how you can find it and share it with me and your other guests: what3words.com/airbnbhost

See how a reindeer-herder in the wilds of Mongolia is using what3words to list his teepee on Airbnb.

Did you know? what3words works offline when you download Navmii or maps.me along with the local offline map. It is compatible with navigation apps including Google Maps, Citymapper and Waze, and even ride hailing apps like Uber and Cabify. The free app is also available in over 25 languages, so you can book a ride to exactly where you need to be, even when you don’t speak the language.
