Airbnb Hosts Can Be Tour Guides

Have you stayed at an AirBnb while traveling?

 

The travel lodging site has announced if you advertise your rental space on their site, you can be a tour guide too! This new business venture is called, “AirBnb Trips.”

 

Airbnb's new service aims to expand its offerings beyond housing. It gives hosts another way to make money on the website. The company will receive an unknown portion of the new service's cost.

 

The new travel services give travellers the chance to do anything- from a few hours of learning how to fight with Samurai swords, to spending three days learning how to take photos of shooting stars, or discovering the history of an ancient city!

 

The company also hopes to give back to the community. Guests can choose to donate where they are visiting by helping a non-profit. Airbnb is also working with the Make-A-Wish foundation to help one child each day realise their dream. How sweet!

 

In the future, these services may give Airbnb the ability to let people sell anything, such as attendance at concerts and rides!

 

Would you book a tour with your Airbnb provider, or do it the old fashioned way?
