This book explores how Airbnb has developed from its early days as a niche accommodation provider to the alternative traveller segment to a mainstream booking platform for short-term accommodation and other travel-related services. Every chapter discusses three distinct periods of time: the time before, during and after COVID-19. The pandemic has disrupted Airbnb’s growth and expansion trajectory, leading Airbnb to focus once again on the key to its success: local communities.
