With continued interest from as far afield as New York, Birmingham is growing as a tourist destination; Airbnb has recently seen an increase in demand for accommodation in our fair city.
Airbnb allows people to rent our their spare space by providing a safe and secure platform that requires verification checks, facilitates payments, and gives hosts peace of mind through a £600,000 guarantee. With accommodation ranging from spare bedrooms to private islands across 35,000 cities globally, someone books via Airbnb every two seconds!
Jennifer and Andrew moved to Birmingham in 2009 for PhD study, and say the most enjoyable part of hosting through Airbnb is meeting interesting characters, from Italian cooking sensations to British musicians. The extra income goes towards personal travels and preparing for their new baby: “We’ve never had any problems using Airbnb, only positive experiences, and their 24/7 customer service team is always available to help.”
