Locals passionate about a particularly unusual or interesting activity have the chance to make money from their interests as Airbnb is looking for ‘experience hosts’.

Airbnb experiences are activities designed and led by inspiring locals that take tourists beyond the typical tours or classes more widely available. They allow guests to immerse themselves in each host’s unique world and passion.

These tailored experiences are a great chance for locals to share the activities, skills and things they love with others while making money and without needing an extra room or having to pay rent for an Airbnb house or flat.

This unique offering acts as a platform for those involved to develop their businesses too, and Airbnb provides full support for step-by-step setups of their unique experience.

It’s a great way for enthusiasts of all kinds to meet interesting travellers and get people excited about a new hobby or practice, possibly even making friend along the way.

Experience hosts can set their own schedule and pick a price and group that suits them, as well as manage the details regarding their experience on the go, with a convenient app.

Hosts get their own page on Airbnb that travellers can use to book their experience with them. Airbnb handles payment processing, provides 24-hour customer service, and covers liability insurance.
