Earlier this year, Airbnb unveiled a roadmap for its core Homes business for the next 10 years designed to bring the transformative benefits of local, personal and authentic travel to every type of traveller. As part of the roadmap, Airbnb introduced new searchable property types on the platform, including B&Bs and boutique hotels, giving guests a greater choice of accommodation options, and traditional hospitality businesses that meetAirbnb’s hospitality standards the opportunity to host on Airbnb.
