Brian Chesky, in his interview with the Financial Times, discussed an upcoming major platform update. Let’s take a closer look at what the largest player in the tourist accommodation market has in store.

Long-Term Rentals

In recent times, there have been increasing concerns expressed by authorities in cities and entire countries regarding Airbnb’s platform. Places like New York, Croatia, Turkey, Cyprus, and other popular tourist destinations have seen growing discontent with Airbnb. Several cities and countries have already implemented restrictions on short-term rentals through Airbnb.

This is precisely why Airbnb plans to actively support long-term rentals. Currently, only 18% of bookings fall into this category, but Airbnb’s CEO sees significant potential in this direction.

New Services

Airbnb is already working on several new services. Soon, they will launch services for car rentals and a tool to help users discover cafes and restaurants.

In this way, the company’s CEO believes that Airbnb will become a vital part of people’s daily lives, and the platform will be used not only once or twice a year during vacations.

Hotel Booking – Booking.com
