From Hotels to Homes: Opening the Door to the Airbnb Traveler
Private accommodation renting is on an absolute growth tear. Back in 2010, only 8% of U.S. leisure travelers rented a private home, apartment or room while on vacation. In 2014, that figure jumped to 25%. No one can argue that Airbnb is at the heart of the recent swell in renting.
