What is an Airbnb Experience?

Do you know your area really well and want to be a local tour guide? Do you have a cool hobby people would pay to see? Airbnb Experiences in London or in your local town are an opportunity for anyone to share their hobbies, skills, or expertise with the world, without needing an extra room. Unlike a typical tour or workshop, creating your own Airbnb experience in London go beyond the activities themselves. They offer a deep-dive into your world through your passion.

Big rumour crushed, you do not need to host your home on Airbnb in order to host an experience. 

What are the benefits?

1. Make money without spending time and money promoting your passion – Airbnb do it for you via their platform
2. Meet new people outside your day to day. Host and entertain guests from all over the world whilst doing your side hustle
3. Showcase, learn a new still outside your day to day job
4. Reach a potentially huge audience
5. Host when you want.

Buckle up and find out how you can earn extra money each week with this easy step-by-step guide and a real life example.

Come up with Airbnb Experience Idea

Brainstorm a few ideas on a piece of paper– perhaps this could be to do with where you live? Or a trick/talent people would pay to see? Site seeing by bike, light photography at night, cooking lesson or yoga (in a sauna, if you own one). Just create and curate a unique activity people want to try.

Setting up the Airbnb Experience

Here is an overview of the process:

1). Learn about their expectations

Find out what makes experiences different and what Airbnb is looking for. Look at competitor activities to work out a good price to charge. Tip: Start low with the price.

2) Create your experience

Add photos, descriptions, and other details to be reviewed by Airbnb. Try and make photos as clear as possible and make the description concise.

3) Submit for review

Someone from Airbnb will review your experience page. If it meets their quality standards, you’ll get to add calendar availability and start hosting your first one.

The actual Airbnb Experience London

Make the experience as professional as possible, even if one person shows up (which is likely in the beginning). In the beginning, high reviews are what you need to appear high up in the Airbnb rankings. Practice, Tweak and improve the experience, and you will get there (it will take time). Each experience, keep photographing people having a fun time on your tour to add to your listing.

My case study

At University, I used to work at Canterbury Cathedral in tourist information, probably the best part time job I ever did. Meeting people from around the world and explaining things. A decade and a bit later, I lived in Greenwich and decided to host tours around Greenwich, showing hosts the main sites of Greenwich in an hour. I used YouTube and the internet and a friend’s knowledge to get enough information together for a tour. My Greenwich Tour was born. https://www.airbnb.co.uk/experiences/791878#

If Airbnb experience isn’t for you, trying renting out your own spare space for extra cash. See the article written here.
