Did you know that, in the last year, more than 4.5 million people searched for eco-friendly listings on Airbnb alone? What used to be simply a place to rent out your spare room has become one of the hottest destinations for travellers to find their next unique adventure – and the sustainability movement means it’s ripe for glampsites to attract a whole new market of nature-seekers.
It’s only been around for 11 years, but Airbnb is already worth an estimated £23bn. The rising popularity of travellers finding unique places to stay (did someone say geodesic domes?), combined with the opportunity to save money, is what has created this ‘share economy’ phenomena, and it’s not a trend that’s likely to go anywhere soon. That’s why it’s the ideal place to begin your glamping journey.
Whether you have a whole site dedicated to welcoming visitors, or want to make some extra money from unused space, the easy model of Airbnb allows you to list your accommodation easily, efficiently, and most of all, reach a huge market of travellers who are searching every day for new and exciting experiences – is your site listed yet?
