Trends are changing for a popular online marketplace for vacation rentals during a worldwide health crisis.
With more people than ever working from home, Airbnb says they are seeing an uptick in longer term booking.
“Companies are allowing their employees to continue to work from home. We are certainly seeing the ability to really live anywhere and to extend what would normally be a vacation into a situation into where you could continue to work out of your short-term rental,” said Senior Communications Manager for Airbnb Liz DeBold Fusco.
She says unique stays with searches for “wifi” and “pet-friendly” are also popping up.
“Cabins and tiny homes are actually over taking more traditional short-term rental options and trip searches on our platform.”
During the month of June, Airbnb hosts in Wisconsin earned more than 3.6 million dollars.
