MadeComfy partners with Airbnb for domestic tourism campaign

Australia: Short-term rental property management company MadeComfy has partnered with Airbnb Experiences to offer Australians who are largely stuck in the country or their state a way to stay and see their own backyard this summer.

The campaign is aimed at providing Australians with the best possible local travel experiences at an affordable price, while helping local short-term rental hosts and Experience providers get back on their feet after the halt of tourism during Covid.

Guests looking to stay and experience Sydney, Brisbane, the Gold Coast, Canberra, Blue Mountains or Melbourne [subject to restrictions] will be able to claim a 15 per cent discount off their nightly rate when booking on MadeComfy, as well as 15 per cent off an Airbnb Experience during their stay after registering on the campaign page here.

MadeComfy CMO Nina Jung said: “Aussies love to travel and we know there has been pent-up demand building to get out of the house following lockdowns and work-from-home fatigue. The good news is they don’t need to travel far to still have an unforgettable holiday this summer – there are some amazing places to stay and things to do even in your own city.

“By teaming up with the Airbnb Experiences team, we believe we are making local travel more interesting and affordable for Aussies, and this will ultimately support local hosts and experience operators,” she added.

Parin Mehta, managing director, APAC for Airbnb Experiences, said that the initiative was designed to make it easier for travellers to try something new while making a valuable contribution to economic recovery.

He said: “As summer approaches, it’s been really heartening to see Aussies display such incredible enthusiasm for exploring their own backyard. Whether it’s stand up paddle board yoga on the Gold Coast, or embarking on a self-drive speed boat adventure on Sydney Harbour, our range of handcrafted activities powered by local hosts really offers something for everyone.”

The final date to claim the campaign vouchers and book a MadeComfy stay and Airbnb Experience is 31 December 2020.
