Airbnb Awesomely: New Features Changing the Game for Short-Term Rentals
Hey, JP here with some really cool Airbnb intel to share with you…
The titan platform of short-term rentals has added some awesome new features lately that hosts should know about.
And yes, members of “Your First BNB” training (there are quite a few here now) will definitely want to know about this, so you can start exploring new ways to accelerate profits and level-up your bottom-line even more in your short-term rental game.
As you know, millions of people are now more flexible about where they live and work — they're spreading out to thousands of towns and cities. And they're staying for weeks, months, or even entire seasons at a time.
A new world of travel has emerged out of the pandemic. People are using short-term rentals for more than just vacations and business travel: excursions, experiences, getaways, workcations and more.
So, seeing the trends, Airbnb has introduced some cool new features to accommodate this new world.
#1 Cool New Feature: “Categories”
For 25 years, the way you search for travel online has been the same, simple starting point…
But now, Airbnb has decided to help open the world more by enticing you to consider places that you maybe would’ve never have thought to search for…
Airbnb “categories” are collections of homes organized by what makes them unique. You can now search by what kind of trip you want to experience, like:
- Historical Homes
- Tiny Homes
- And more fun options
“Design” is a super-fun category. These are over 200 homes that have been selected because they are either from notable architects like Frank Lloyd Wright or they've been in cool design or architecture magazines.
“OMG” is for properties where you’d think, “I can't believe this even exists!” For example, there’s a yellow submarine in the middle of the woods in New Zealand. So yeah, OMG seems fitting.
These new categories allow people to search by whatever their passion is, whatever they’re interested in and in just about any place in the world — which means you’ve now got more opportunities to profit from hosting Airbnb rentals.
Let’s say you know you want to look in a specific location… somewhere in France. Well, you can narrow down your search by category with an option like “historical homes” or “vineyards” or “surfing.” Yep, there's now a surfing category in France.
Legit: There is a category for everyone.
Another Cool, New Feature: “Split Stays”
It splits your trip between 2 different homes. So you’d choose 2 homes back to back, and it pairs those homes together.
If you have a longer stay somewhere, you can try 2 different homes. Of course, you can also use the new categories feature with it.
You could, for example, have a split stay at 2 national parks: Joshua Tree and Zion.
#3: “Air Coverage” Protection
Airbnb also wants renters to feel like the company has their back. So it’s created “air cover” for guests. Airbnb claims it’s the most comprehensive set of free protections in travel.
- There’s a “booking protection guarantee” for the unlikely event that a host cancels a booking within a month of arrival.
- And there’s a “check-in guarantee” — if a renter can’t get into their Airbnb.
- Plus the “get what you booked guarantee,” if an Airbnb is not as advertised — for instance, the AC is broken or there are fewer bedrooms than advertised.
In all those 3 instances, Airbnb will find renters a similar or better home or provide a refund.
And, “air cover” also provides a 24-hour safety line. If a renter feels unsafe, they get priority access to specially trained agents.
Airbnb says there’s no other product like “air cover” in the travel industry.
A feature like this explicitly protecting Airbnb guests can benefit hosts indirectly by prominently assuring potential guests that the description & availability promised in your listing is fully backed by Airbnb itself (through this new feature).
So, Where To…?
Here’s the thing — a lot of people really haven't left their houses much for over 2 years. And this summer is going to be the first time that a lot of people step outside and go somewhere. In fact, with Memorial Day behind us (as of this writing), it’s already started.
Now’s your chance to capitalize on it.
With these new Airbnb summer releases, now’s the perfect time for you to jump in for the first time or level-up your REI business… profiting nicely starting with “Your First BNB” ッ
Get to it!
I don’t have any ideas what is real estate is all about but in regards to the saying that I heard from this company that a day a week you could get a thousands of money dollars
It appears almost every step of the way is requiring more money for a system that helps to the next step. After I have paid over $500 already. Not sure where this money trail ends or how much in total I will have paid in.
This seems interesting but am suppose to start with bnb or do i go straight to the one day flip course, because that is what I paid for?
@Marco- I suggest you focus on One Day Flip since that’s the program you have right now.
I’m excited to learn more!
I like and believe in everything you have said .I already dream big and put myself in those places all the time . I have reached a lot of goals I put down . I have new goals now just having twin boys at 46 and never thought I was having kids .not that we didn’t want kids but my wife was told she could never have kids ! We been together 14 years and one day it happened right before the huge break out of COVID and craziness going on too! My wife was 6 months pregnant and doctor said everything was perfect and bam the next day my wife’s water broke and she didn’t even know .she just thought it was normal from pregnancy. We went to bed she didn’t even mention that btw to me until next morning. She started having pain and I rushed her to hospital thinking the worst and it was so scary in my head I was trying make my self prepare for the fir the worse and calm my wife so she didn’t lose her mind . I am very good at doing that btw for some reason . Anyways because my wife’s body was not supposed to even be pregnant and it was a miracle already she lasted this long we both were expecting a horrible ending .
She ended up having the twins 1 pound each and looked like little squirrels I swear ! I almost past out in the delivery and she was the one getting cutt into and I was supposed to be helping lol
Long story longer,! Lol
The boys were in hospital 6 months up and down not going to make it then making it ?! It was the most exciting and scariest time in are life ! COVID just started we couldn’t visit often and are boys were fighting for there life by there self most the time .
Well after the long intense road of heaven and hell lol
They are amazing 2 years old now and unbelievable.
So this is my motivation now ! ! I knew they would make it because it was already a miracle getting pregnant but twins !!! Come on !
I believe you when you say everything about one day flip and I feel you came into my life for reason . I been trying to find investment people and rich friends and parents to help me with the investment part and I like you did my first flip that were living in right now and started with nothing . Buying a condo cash because are credit was horrible and turning that into profit to buying this house cash because we had a family now and needed bigger place . I’ve been working nights now on house 7pm – sometimes no sleep watching my kids when wife goes to work and we are just making it by pay check to pay check .i just would have to tell my wife hang in there i promise all this hard work will pay off .my wife is a realist and doesn’t believe or trust anyone specially when it comes to what your doing . I am a big dreamer and always out side the box .my goals are way beyond most . I don’t give up ever specially if I believe in it . I can’t start something unless I know I will finish it and that means sometimes working all night and overtime to finish .that drives my wife crazy !
So all the hard work is about to pay off I told her .she doesn’t think this company is real . She thinks there is know way there’s people like you willing to offer this kind of money making dream job . I told her this time she was wrong ! So let’s prove her wrong boss !! Please
I will be your best student I promise you !! I’m ready to go .I even have deals ready already .I have had 3 construction businesses and made them successful but never really liked the building part I loved the sales and challenge of getting the contract against other contractors.i would get jobs even if they were thousands of dollars apart on estimates just because people love me and know I do what I say and never ever am late when I say I will be there or do something I do it . I’m not perfect but as I got older I changed alot and the most important thing I did was be honest and communication and never lie .it has made my relationship stronger and healthier. Trust is the most important thing in anything you do . specially in business ,friendship and partnership.
The most important thing I want is to have something for my family when I pass . I want my kids to have and be successful in whatever it is they do and treat people with respect and honesty like they get from me .
Ok I’m sorry for the long comment I was supposed to give you lol
You know what I think and you who your working with now . Thank you for the opportunity I hope I can be as successful as you are sir
