Certify‘s findings for 2016, based on expense claims filed through its system, includes some proper statistics for Airbnb.
During the year just gone, Airbnb continued its run of doubling transaction volumes every year since 2014. No specific room night numbers are revealed, but Certify does specify that, out of all the hotel expense claims filed, Airbnb is now responsible for 0.27% of the total.
A market share of less than 1% is not as weak as it first appears. Certify points out that the most expensed hotel chain – Hampton Inn – accounts for 8.82% of the total. Residence Inn, which props up Certify’s top 15 expensed hotel chain league table, accounts for 1.18%.
Certify says:”Assuming a similar or slightly improved growth rate, Certify expects Airbnb could approach the top 15 most expensed hotels sometime late next year.”
