Airbnb Experiences From the Comfort of Your Home

Airbnb has launched Online Experiences, as a new way for people to connect, travel virtually and earn income during the COVID-19 crisis.

With communities around the world staying home to protect their own health and the health of others, people can’t pursue routine activities like going to work, exercising or pursuing a passion.

Now, Online Experiences will change that by allowing hosts to earn an income in these uncertain times, and bring their transformative virtual Experience to millions of guests.

Airbnb Experiences offers an array of options like meditation with Buddhist monksvirtual visits with the dogs of Chernobylcooking with a Moroccan family, and more.
