Five Airbnb hosts will open up their intergalactic-looking homes at the incredibly low price for selected dates this year.

Travellers looking for an unusual holiday will be able to stay in the out-of-this-world Airbnbs, which include a replica of a spaceship and a flying saucer.

You won't have to travel in a spaceship to experience a galaxy far, far away either, as some of the Airbnbs are right here in the UK. But as with any good deal, you'll have to be quick to get a night at the special price.

The deal will be available to book on 20th July only, between 1pm and 2pm BST. Stays will be on limited nights throughout August, September, October, and November.

Here are the unusual Airbnbs you can book for $11 (£9) to celebrate the moon landing in style...
