Airbnb have solved all of the awkwardness surrounding booking a holiday with friends, with the introduction of a split bill feature.
Gone are the days of having to chase mates for money, with the new feature allowing the cost to be divided between all involved.
According to the Airbnb website, the booking reservation is put on hold until the amount is paid in full.
And if you're having to cover for a mate, you can pay off the remaining balance.
If the full cost isn't paid by the deadline, the reservation will be cancelled and everyone will get their money back.
You can keep an eye on who has and has not paid on the 'Your Trips' section of the website.
