Did you see the announcement on the 100+ upgrades across Airbnb in May?
On Tuesday Airbnb leaders and Host Community Leaders held an event for local UK Host Clubs to discuss what these changes mean for Hosts. I also attended alongside @Stephanie, and it was great to see @Mary996, @Helen3 and @Gordon0.
This is based on analysing booking data and surveying 10,000 consumers across 5 countries - including 2,000 people in the UK. Here’s what we learnt about the UK:
Brits still love to travel
Guests are looking to travel in a flexible way
Where are we going
And a fun fact - the most frequently cited word in the surveys was HOPEFUL, which I think we can all relate to. I’m looking forward to travelling again, and to hearing your stories as the travel rebound continues. And if you would like to connect with your local Host Club, find your Club here.
What are you feeling hopeful about?
