Airbnb seems to have attracted a clientele that plans for the longer term. Slice data indicates that 38 percent of Airbnb guests booked their travel more than a month in advance, compared to only 23 percent who did so on other hotel booking sites. Only six percent of Airbnb guests made their reservation on the day that their stay began. Airbnb guests enjoy significant discounts on the average hotel price paid online. In the last twelve months, those who stayed at an Airbnb spent 26 percent less per night on lodgings than hotel guests. And savings in major cities can be even higher. Airbnb guests in Los Angeles, for example, have saved an average of 47 percent dating back to last July. Airbnb occupies a unique space within the ecosystem of traditional hotel chains. Airbnb’s low price point - an average of $128 per night nationwide over the last twelve months - puts it on par with discount hotels like Best Western ($125), Comfort Inn & Suites ($124), and Country Inn ($117). Yet Airbnb guests book an average of 3.5 nights, a length of stay more befitting of a luxury hotel chain. Get the full story at Slice Intelligence
