People are more flexible than ever about where and when they travel. To help them take advantage of these new possibilities, we’re introducing our biggest change in a decade—including a completely new way to search, a better way to stay longer, and an unmatched level of protection.
Introducing an all-new design, built around Airbnb Categories, to help our guests easily explore the world of Airbnb—and discover places they wouldn’t have known to search for.
Our Hosts offer millions of unique homes around the world. Airbnb Categories organize them into curated collections, with over 50 categories of homes chosen for their style, location, or nearby activities. They include:
Guests can now easily discover over 20,000 homes chosen for their iconic architecture and interiors, including masterpieces by architects like Frank Lloyd Wright and Le Corbusier.
Airbnb Hosts offer the largest collection of unique homes in the world—from treehouses to tiny homes—in over 100,000 towns across 220 countries.
We evaluate listings on Airbnb by using machine learning to analyze titles, written descriptions, guest reviews, photo captions, and other data.
Members of Airbnb’s curation team review listings and hand-pick featured photos. Then each category goes through a final review for consistency and photo quality.
More people are taking longer trips than ever before. To give them even more options when planning we’ve created Split Stays, an innovative new feature that splits a trip between two different homes—now guests can find an average of 40% more listings when searching for those longer stays.
When guests search for a longer stay in a single destination, we’ll offer the option of splitting their trip between two different homes in the area.
Split Stays are also offered in 14 different categories, including Camping, National Parks, Surfing, and more, so guests can enjoy similar homes or activities in two places. For example, a guest browsing the National Parks Category might find a Split Stay suggesting a home near Zion and another by the Grand Canyon.
We intelligently pair two homes, matched by location, property type, and amenities.
Split Stays are connected on the map by an animation that clearly shows the distance between the homes and the sequence of the stays.
Once a guest selects a Split Stay, they are guided through an easy-to-use flow to book each home—one at a time.
