Airbnb news june 2019

Want Airbnb news? Look no further. I’ve done the legwork of reading countless headlines and articles to bring you the most relevant and interesting. I unabashedly ignore news related to temporary annoyances like overly restrictive city regulations, supposed housing crises, and topics-of-the-day like hidden cameras. This post covers fun, interesting, and unique news from June 2019.

Airbnb Adventures: Search for UFOs, track lions with Airbnb

 

Unlike Airbnb Experiences which is stale and not exciting, as soon as I saw the Airbnb Adventures marketing campaign, I liked it. Essentially, you don’t need travel agents anymore. Everything is being brought in house at Airbnb and these trips are actually cool and unique.

 

For example, you can go around the world in 80 days for just $5K.

 

Let’s say I want to go on a safari in Africa. I have a few options:

  1. I can contact a travel agent and hope they’re good
  2. I can do a ton of research on my own
  3. I can use Airbnb Adventures

 

That’s a clear winner because nothing else exists exactly like Airbnb Adventures while a lot already exists for Airbnb Experiences which is just a copycat service.

 

Here is the official announcement about Airbnb Adventures.

 

You know it will be a giant success when the only criticism is that the price will be much higher than expected due to….the cost of the flight to get to the beginning destination. Hah! I predict: success.

Airbnb offers $24 tours of its company headquarters

 

It seems like an eternity when I worked at this office. It’s the coolest office I’ve ever seen.

 

If you’re a host in SF, be sure to offer it to your guests’. They can choose from a day-time or night-time tour of the Airbnb office with dinner option.
