Want to travel on a discount? Well, Airbnb has now made it their goal to help you achieve that. Both Airbnb and the City of Milan have made it so travelers will have the chance to stay in their respected apartment longer by giving Hosts in Europe the green light to let it happen.
Posted on their website, Airbnb states that “The announcement was made by Councilors Gabriele Rabaiotti and Pierfrancesco Maran together with Airbnb’s Head of Public Policy Valentina Reino. It is the latest measure to underpin Airbnb’s commitment to work with communities across Europe, to rebalance tourism and ensure that the return of travel is safe, sustainable and benefits everyone.”
This is great news given that America has seen an increase in passengers traveling more than last year during March of 2020. Reports show that 2.1 million people have booked a flight. That number will only increase as we continue to see cities, such New York City, open up to full capacity.
Moreover, Airbnb is truly committed and firmly believes in sustainable hospitality:
“Our platform and our community are ready to play our part to support The Great Rebalance of European Travel and beyond. There are numerous personal and professional reasons that lead a person to seek temporary accommodation and still call it home. The collaboration with City Hall imagines a future of sustainable hospitality, which we hope to be able to replicate in other cities. Hosts are showing a lot of interest in longer rentals with 80% already accepting stays longer than 28 days, with over 50 percent of the listings having a discounted long term rate.”
If you are a content creator who plans on traveling, figure out if you’d want to stay in Europe longer than 10 days. Why? Because why not? Airbnb has made it easier for Hosts to follow guidelines. Renters are at ease with staying for a month at a reasonable price. Still, do your research. Not every country in the world is handling the pandemic as well as, say, America, especially France, Turkey, and the UK.
