147. Exploring Airbnb Categories

Options are always good. Unlimited options? Even better! 

That is what Airbnb is offering with its latest 2022 Summer Release. When you open it, you’re presented with 56 categories that organize homes based on their style, location, or proximity to a travel activity. That is 5.3 million unique listings in 191 different countries around the globe! 

Limitless possibilities are here to stay for the travel industry. The changing of work set-ups paved the way for “bleisure” stays (that’s business + leisure combined) and these beautiful, fun and sometimes quirky groupings just added more inspiration to travelers. 

As Airbnb timely transitioned from a destination-focused search to an experience-focused search, we ask, “What are my chances of popping up on these new search results?” “Is my listing in one of those categories?” So to understand more about this latest update from Airbnb Summer Release, let’s dive in! This week we will discuss: 

  • Interesting Airbnb Categories
  • Why was the search changed?
  • Top 3 Host questions to Airbnb
  • Elements Airbnb consider for you to qualify in a category
