Airbnb’s Business Model

Item Type Book Section

Peer-to-peer accommodation platforms create value by matching guests who search for tourist accommodation with hosts who make available unused private space for short-term rental. This chapter analyses what is new about the business model of platforms that enable and sustain peer-to-peer accommodation networks. Chapters 4 and 5 go on to analyse in detail the business model of Airbnb, the leading international peer-to-peer accommodation network facilitator.
