Summary

Airbnb has become one of the largest online travel sellers in the world, selling some $38 billion in home rentals in 2019. Airbnb recovered faster than most amid the pandemic to close out 2020 with the biggest initial public offering of the year.

Although the company’s tours and activities segment, Airbnb Experiences, is relatively small with about 40,000 listings (vs. 5.6 million active accommodations),  Airbnb has had a big impact. 

There are plenty of reasons to list on Airbnb as well as not to, and each tour and activity operator must make the best decision for their business. This 2021 edition is for operators who currently list or are considering listing on Airbnb.
