Private equity firms Blackstone and CVC Capital are also among those reported to be interested in buying the rental sites, which have been put up for sale by American hotel empire Wyndham Worldwide Corporation, which counts Travelodge and Ramada among its brands.

The company is now valued at £24 billion with Airbnb’s 36-year-old co-founder and chief executive, Brian Chesky, worth £2.8 billion.
