Homestays - International - August 2015
“The attraction of homestays is multifaceted and includes price, cultural immersion and the ability to experience a destination as a local. Although the big Web-based distribution platforms like Airbnb have great growth potential, it is unlikely that they will take business away from the established operators in the more traditional areas of homestay like student exchanges, since the needs of the customer base of the latter are quite different. Finally, there is great potential to make use of the homestay concept to temporarily increase lodging capacity in destinations hosting major events.”
- Jessica Kelly, Senior Tourism Analyst
