Airbnb launches Online Experiences amid COVID-19 pandemic
Airbnb launches Online Experiences, a new feature that allows hosts to connect, travel, and earn income virtually amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Bringing in Airbnb’s “Experience” virtually, the Online Experiences provides a wide array of activities, creating a global community of online learners. The selection of activities is good for families, groups of friends, and colleagues to enjoy. It provides access to the most celebrated hosts from more than 30 countries including Olympic medalists Alistair Brownlee and Lauren Gibbs.
Airbnb, in partnership with local organizations like National Council on Aging (NCOA), Associazione Nazionale Alpini – Sezione di Milan, SAGE, and Amigos de los Mayores, also curated some activities for senior citizens.
Currently, there are more than 50 virtual Airbnb Experiences hosted on Zoom. Airbnb hosts get free access to Zoom along with personalized support services for curating, live streaming, and sharing their Online Experience. Interested hosts may visit this link.
