Airbnb releases UK booking data

 

Airbnb has released a new report that shows 2.2 million guests used the holiday accommodation booking system to visit the UK in the past year, and 3.1 million UK residents used Airbnb for their travels.

In the UK, 52,500 hosts shared their homes in the past year. The typical host earned £2,000 by sharing their homes for 46 nights a year.

According to the report, 85% of Airbnb guests choose Airbnb to ‘live like a local’ in communities beyond the tourist hotspots. This spread economic benefits beyond city centres and tourist hotspots.

More than a third of UK hosts earn below the median household income, and almost half rely on the income they make by sharing their homes to make ends meet.
