Airbnb said that 64 percent of guests who saved money by using Airbnb spent more on food and shopping, suggesting that the spend was new. According to Airbnb, no businesses benefit more than restaurants because Airbnb guests spend the greatest portion of their money while traveling on restaurants and dining out, compared to other expenses like shopping, transportation and leisure. The study followed the launch of Guidebooks, a feature that allows hosts to recommend local spots, including restaurants, stores and other attractions that appear on the map of their public listing page. Available on the Airbnb platform, these guidebooks are combined lists of recommendations from hosts. To date, about 200,000 small businesses and local attractions appear in these city guidebooks, including more than 90,000 restaurants. Get the full story at Hotel Management
