London is the most active city on the app: Airbnb insight report.
From affordable accommodation to one of the hottest private companies in the world, the rise of Airbnb is worth noticing.
10 years ago, when Brian Cheky, Joe Gebbia and Nathan Blecharczyk founded the service wanting to help short-term travelers find affordable accommodation and renters in making an extra buck by renting out spare rooms, they never imagined the impact the platform would have and the fact that with Airbnb you can experience cities more affordably and in a less touristy way.
Now, as a company that blows its internal forecasts by bringing in $93 million in profit on $2.6 billion in revenue during 2017, it’s a must for cities like New York, Paris and London, where hotel rooms are hard –or expensive– to book.
Recent data from AirDNA and Statista shows the cities where the app is particularly popular. London is the Airbnb capital of the world.
