EP232 This Week in the World of Airbnb

This week Jasper and David discuss the big Airbnb updates that Brian Chesky revealed in a live event last week. The updates fall into five different categories:

1) Extra benefits for Superhosts — 11 new benefits for Superhosts, including a custom URL for your listing, exclusive pricing on smart home products and tools to test different versions of your listing.

2) Superguests — Airbnb is starting a pilot among 10,000 frequent Airbnb travelers who will receive benefits for their loyalty.

3) Airbnb Collections & Categories — hosts can choose from four new categories – Bed & Breakfast, Vacation Rental, Unique and Boutique. Airbnb will also be categorizing listings based on the reasons users would be staying in a home. These are called collections and range from family, work, social stays to honeymoons.

4) Airbnb Plus — for hosts who go the extra mile. Airbnb Plus is a special section of the website where you can find the best listings. These are all inspected by Airbnb staff according to a 100-point check list, including amenities, cleanliness, comfort and design. These listings are really the cherries among the 4,5 million listings that are on Airbnb.

Beyond by Airbnb — launching this Spring, Beyond aims to provide Airbnb users with the trip of a life time. The focus is really on the experience, think private Airport pick-up and other special amenities and services.
