What would you do with an extra $12,000 this summer? Vacation in a castle? Head to Paris? Or maybe tuck into a treehouse for a week?
Home-rental site Airbnb is famous for offering these kinds of unique places to stay all over the world. (At last count, it has accommodations in more than 34,000 cities in 191 countries.) That much you probably know. What may surprise you: The San Francisco-based company also provides a way for travel lovers to fund their own trips—by sharing their extra space as a host.
It’s free to create a listing on the site whether you share your couch, spare bedroom, or vacation home. Airbnb helps you get started with 24/7 support, hosting tips, and peace of mind with its $1 Million Host Guarantee. You get to decide when and how often you host by setting your availability on your listing’s calendar. And right now is a great time to get started.
Demand is high since summer is Seattle’s busy travel season. Last year, for instance, from May to August, there were a monumental 200% more trips to Seattle on Airbnb than there were during winter, and hosts in Seattle made 25% more per night. Hosts use that extra money to pay for home improvements, retirement, or that next dream trip! Find out how much you can make as a host here.
Right now, Airbnb is sweetening the deal by offering Fremontuniverse.com readers an extra $200 to new hosts. Here’s the deal:
– Create a listing using this link
– Host your first guest at a listing that’s within 25 miles of the intersection of 5th Ave and Madison St
– Want to know more? The full terms and conditions are here
Happy hosting—and enjoy that castle!
