Bermuda: Preparations are underway in Bermuda where Airbnb Experiences is soon set to launch.
The Bermuda Tourism Authority (BTA) said: “Residents who would like to host an Experience on Airbnb are encouraged to submit their online applications by February 15, 2019. This inaugural group of hosts will benefit from increased exposure during the official launch of Experiences on the island, scheduled for early March.”
Where else have Airbnb Experiences been launched in the region?
Bermuda will become the fifth destination in that region of the world to offer Experiences, after it was successfully rolled out in Cuba, Puerto Rico, Jamaica and Martinique.
What will Airbnb Experiences bring to Bermuda?
The BTA said: “Airbnb Experiences offer visitors a distinct journey into Bermuda’s way of life, through unique activities designed and led by inspiring locals. These activities dive deeper than a typical tour or excursion and provide an opportunity for anyone to share their hobbies, passions, skills, or expertise, regardless of whether they are an existing Airbnb home host.”
What happens when you become an Experiences host?
It added that there are no startup costs involved in becoming an Experience host. Hosts can set their desired rate and Airbnb collects a small service fee in exchange for connecting local hosts with travellers from around the world that utilise the platform.
More information can be found on the Airbnb Experiences website, where visitors can also fill out an online application to become an Experiences host.
