Airbnb for Work Claims 700,000 Businesses as Bookings Tripled for Second Year in a Row

Airbnb for Work

Business travelers are increasingly ditching hotels and flocking to Airbnb, according to data revealed today by the home-sharing platform. The company announced that bookings made through its Airbnb for Work program, which was recently rebranded from Airbnb for Business, tripled between 2016 and 2017 — an increase similar to that seen in the 2015-2016 period. But more than this, Airbnb has announced that 700,000 companies are now using Airbnb for Work, up from the 250,000 it reported in April last year, with some notable new clients, including Gap and Twitter. (VentureBeat )
