Airbnb and Wego partner to offer ME travellers more accommodation options
Analysis of search and booking data shows that users from GCC countries have the longest length of stay, highest spend per night and most frequent instance of multiple room bookings to accommodate family groups.
Airbnb has announced a partnership with Wego, the largest travel metasearch player in the Middle East and North Africa, to include properties listed on Airbnb in Wego search results.
With the addition of listings on Airbnb, travellers using the Wego metasearch apps and websites will have more access to local homes and accommodation in destinations worldwide. When Wego users enter their destination city and dates of travel, they can follow the recommended filters to search for Airbnb vacation rentals.
Wego helps users to compare a marketplace of hotels, serviced apartments, homes and villas and to compare rates across OTAs, hotel direct websites and other merchants. Airbnb’s accommodation marketplace offers access to millions of places to stay in more than 191 countries, from apartments and villas to castles and treehouses.
Wego users will be able to view Airbnb properties across all destinations worldwide, including in Dubai, Beirut, Istanbul, Amman, Marrakech, London, Paris and New York.
