Seismic shift: Airbnb will let hosts sell tours and activities
Airbnb was essentially always about being a marketplace to let home-owners earn some extra money by renting out a spare room or an entire property. But the model is slowly changing.
This evolution has seen apparent value-add things such as Wish Lists and the recent Neighbourhoods functionality (to learn more about what’s going on in a particular area of a city), but there have not been any significant changes to the core proposition.
Perhaps until now.
About six months ago, just before its acquisition of LocalMind, Tnooz Node Daniele Beccari speculated how the Neighbourhoods functionality might develop – but it appears the first signs are now beginning to feature on the site.
