Although practically every type of real estate meets the requirements for price plans for longer stays, this move is largely designed to strengthen the business of houses and apartments on Booking.com, and especially communication to focus on long-term rent. In response to the growing demand for long-term stays, Booking.com now allows property owners to offer weekly and monthly rates.

Airbnb and Booking.com are a great example of positive competition pushing each other and racing over who will be faster, better, more efficient. And thus they are pushing the whole market forward. To make it easier for digital nomads to find the types of stays they are looking for, Airbnb has updated its homepage in most countries to highlight ways people can discover long-term rental stays nearby. – We make the search easier, and we also help the hosts to understand this type of stay and how to use it while again making it easier for the guests to find the right accommodation for their needs., point out from Airbnb. last_img read more

Canada Beat Russia to Reach First Davis Cup Final

first_imgCanada beat Russia 6-3 3-6 7-6 (7-5) in an epic decisive doubles rubber to reach the Davis Cup final in Madrid. The pair of Vasek Pospisil and Denis Shapovalov beat Karen Khachanov and Andrey Rublev in a tie-break as Canada reached the final for the first time.“I don’t think any of us expected that we could get this far,” Shapovalov said. “I think we just absolutely played ridiculous tennis.” Canada will face either Great Britain or Spain today.Rublev beat Pospisil 6-4 6-4 in the opening singles rubber to give Russia the lead before Shapovalov levelled with a 6-4 4-6 6-4 win over Khachanov. In the doubles, a final long backhand from Rublev sent Shapovalov and Pospisil leaping into the air and into each other’s arms.Canada captain Frank Dancevic said the nervous finale almost caused him to pass out.“When I was sitting there on match point, my heart was beating so fast, I was actually starting to black out,” he said. “I was trying to control my breathing and just telling myself to breath slowly, stay calm, we’re close to this.“It’s definitely an emotional rollercoaster, sitting on the chair. But at the day it’s an amazing feeling having your guys perform like this and put 110% on the court.”Both Canada and Russia have only used two players during the competition, with Russia relying on Khachanov and Rublev after the withdrawal through fatigue of Daniil Medvedev.Canada have benched Shapovalov’s Junior Davis Cup-winning team-mate Felix Auger-Aliassime following an ankle problem and were without Milos Raonic completely because of injury.Rublev’s singles victory over world number 150 Pospisil, who had not lost a singles match in the tournament, put the pressure on world number 15 Shapovalov.The Canadian number one rose to the challenge, fighting back from 1-4 down to win the first set. He then recovered from 0-40 to serve out the match against Khachanov.Khachanov and Rublev had beaten Serbia’s Novak Djokovic and Viktor Troicki in a dramatic doubles rubber on Friday, saving three match points, but they could not repeat that feat yesterday, with Pospisil and Shapovalov coming from 4-2 down in the tie-break and taking their second match point for victory.It was their third Davis Cup semi-final, after previous last-four defeats in 1913 and 2013.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
