Airbnb study conclusions

From all this data, Airbnb came to multiple conclusions that made the company design new strategies on its platform and create new features to adapt to users’ needs, such as creating categories. The company noted that travelers not only want great locations but also unique menus, they want their travel experience to be as special as possible.

Small houses, domes, barns, and even tree houses aroused the interest of guests for both domestic and international travel. Despite the idea that international travel is much more attractive, American travelers also want to visit American destinations and more than half of the listings booked for summer through the app are in the United States.
