How to Add an Airbnb Experience

Airbnb has transformed the way travelers experience destinations not only by offering a variety of accommodations all over the world but also by providing a platform for hosts everywhere to share their passions and local knowledge through Airbnb Experiences.

If you're a seasoned Airbnb host looking for opportunities to upsell and generate more revenue, consider adding an Airbnb Experience to your offerings.

In this article, we'll explore what Airbnb Experiences are, their benefits for property managers and how you can incorporate them into your Airbnb business.

What is an Airbnb Experience?

An Airbnb Experience is an activity or event hosted by passionate individuals who want to share their expertise, hobbies or unique perspectives with travelers. Airbnb Experiences can range from guided city tours and culinary classes to outdoor adventures, art workshops and more.

Airbnb Experiences can be hosted by any vetted individual with expertise in their offering, including Airbnb accommodation hosts.

By adding an Airbnb Experience to your hosting repertoire, you not only enhance your guests' overall stay but also contribute to their experience of the destinations they are visiting, creating memories that will last them a lifetime.

Why You Should Consider Adding an Airbnb Experience

Diversify your income

Hosting an Airbnb Experience allows you to tap into an additional revenue stream. Whether you're a food enthusiast, an artist or an adventure seeker, there's likely an audience eager to join you in your passion.

Connect with guests on a deeper level

Airbnb Experiences give you a unique opportunity to connect with your guests beyond their stay. Sharing your local knowledge and personal interests fosters a sense of community and guests may leave with not just a place to stay but also new friendships.

Showcase your local expertise

As a host, you know your city or region better than anyone else. Hosting an Airbnb Experience allows you to showcase your local expertise, giving guests an insider's perspective on hidden gems, local sports and off-the-beaten-path attractions.

Boost your Airbnb profile

Adding an Experience can significantly enhance your Airbnb host profile. Airbnb guests often seek out hosts with unique offerings, and having an Experience can set you apart in a competitive market.

Positive reviews from both your accommodations and Experiences can lead to increased visibility and bookings.
