The Secret to Financing Your Travels in 2018

A new year means new travel goals—and a new way to fund your 2018 travels: Airbnb.

Financing Travel Is Easier Than You Think

Earning extra income as an Airbnb host is even easier than it sounds. You can share your house, apartment, or just a single room, and you’re in total control of availability, price, house rules, and how much (or little) you interact with guests. The money you make from renting your space as an Airbnb can mean extra cash in hand to finance your own travels.

Host Perks

Beyond earning extra income (go ahead: calculate your monthly earning potential), you also have the opportunity to meet with people from all over the world. It’s like traveling without leaving your home. Warning: your guests may double the size of your bucket list.

You can even earn extra income while you’re traveling. Just send instructions on how to enter, like a door code, to your guests.

The best part? It’s free—not to mention super simple—to list your property.

Peace of Mind

With nearly a decade of experience and more than 200,000,000 guests, Airbnb has perfected the art of protecting its hosts. First, your property is covered up to a million dollars. Second, you get free Host Protection Insurance that protects you from liability claims up to a million dollars.

And finally, you have access to 24/7 host support.
