Airbnb wants to combine their home rental business with a travel agency. If you think about it, it’s a natural. I’m not sure how many DigiDame readers have ever used Airbnb, but now you may have a reason to.
Called Airbnb Trips, the company wants to offer local experiences that travelers don’t readily have access to. Learn how to surf, ski, bake a cake. Airbnb feels this new service is perfect for people who are lonely when traveling, and want to get out and do new things.
Airbnb is starting with 12 cities. For starters, the travel service will be featured in New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Tokyo, and Paris. Airbnb wants to offer experiences in 50 cities as soon as possible.
From the minute I heard about this new Airbnb service, I had one thought. The company will now be known as a destination to find cool stuff. This is going to be very interesting.
