Airbnb is an online marketplace and hospitality service that allows people to rent out their properties or spare rooms to travelers.
It was founded in 2008 and has since grown into a global platform with listings in over 220 countries and regions.
As a host on Airbnb, you can list your property or a portion of your property, set your own rental rates, and specify the availability and house rules. Travelers can search for accommodations based on their destination, travel dates, and other preferences. They can then book a place directly through the Airbnb website or mobile app.

Airbnb offers various types of accommodations, ranging from shared rooms and apartments to entire houses, villas, and unique properties like castles, treehouses, and houseboats. Listings often include detailed descriptions, photos, reviews from previous guests, and the host’s profile to help travelers make informed decisions.
To ensure trust and safety, the service provides a review system for both hosts and guests.
Hosts can review guests after their stay, and guests can review their accommodations and hosts. This feedback helps build transparency and accountability within the community.
Airbnb has also expanded its services to include Experiences and Adventures.
Experiences are activities and tours hosted by locals, allowing travelers to immerse themselves in the culture and explore their destinations in unique ways. Adventures are multi-day trips led by local guides, providing curated itineraries and accommodations for a more comprehensive travel experience.
