Airbnb is looking for digital nomads

BANGKOK September 22, 2020: The pandemic has changed the way we work, live and travel. People want to live anywhere, blurring the line between living and traveling, with Airbnb continuing to be the platform of choice for digital nomads.

During this period of travel restriction, and in some cases of travel restriction, Airbnb has seen an upward trend in long-term stays. One in three remote workers said they would move to a new city or state if remote working continued, according to a recent survey by the New York Times and Morning Consult.

Whether it’s moving temporarily to be closer to family or seizing the opportunity to explore a new community, data from Airbnb shows customers are increasingly using the platform to support remote work and temporary relocations.

Today, more than 6 million active listings on Airbnb offer long-term and monthly stays, with monthly stay bookings having seen a significant increase in recent months. In Thailand, over 60,000 listings offer monthly discounts for long stays.
