Airbnb Online Experiences
Airbnb’s online experiences provide personal virtual adventures
As COVID-19 has brought traveling to a halt, Airbnb has pivoted into allowing people to instead explore the world from the comfort of their homes. Online Experiences provide ’a new way for people to connect, travel virtually, and earn income during the COVID-19 crisis’. Local hosts that are normally dependent on tourism for income can provide virtual experiences to maintain their living during the crisis.
Virtual travellers can cook with a Moroccan family, meditate with a Buddhist monk or hang out with a goat (!) while learning interesting facts about the animal.
COVID-19 has forced millions of elderly people to self-isolate as they are the most vulnerable to the virus. Airbnb has partnered with SAGE a range of organisations around the world to finalise free Online Experiences for those missing a human connection.
Online Experiences creates income in communities who are otherwise suffering from the global halt to travelling (8.9)
