You don’t have to choose between being a host or a guest, because you can be both at the same time. In the United States, nearly one in four Airbnb hosts were also guests on the platform, with each host earning nearly $12,000 – between January 1 and June 30, 2022. Recently, Caroline Hutt, host of a eco-cabin in Ontario, Canada hosted a satellite media tour to talk about this and their experience as an Airbnb host.

It’s no surprise that the Airbnb host community is passionate about travel. In fact, more than half of its current host community began their journey with Airbnb by traveling as a guest on the platform. And while they now spend their time dreaming up inspiring announcement ideas, searching for hidden gems in their neighborhoods, or doing the many other things necessary to ensure their guests live like locals – they too sometimes have need to scratch the travel itch.

Many hosts see their home as a way to earn extra money while traveling, whether it’s to cover part of their mortgage and bills or even to finance a summer vacation abroad. In the United States, nearly one in four Airbnb hosts were also guests on the platform, typically earning more than $12,000 between January 1 and June 30, 2022.

According to a recent survey, more than 60% of Hosts who said they listed their primary residence said that one of the times they rented to guests was while on a vacation trip. This typical income means that Hosts can travel to destinations such as Buenos Aires, Istanbul, or Milan and still have income to cover living expenses or save for next year’s trip.

Take it from the Superhost Caroline eco-cabin. Caroline and her husband are avid travelers, and they started their Airbnb journey by renovating and listing an RV on their property – before branching out and building The Muskoka Eco-Cabin in Bracebridge, Ontario, Canada. Income from lodging funded their trips to Iceland, Bali, Lombok, Morocco, and many road trips to the United States. Since Caroline started hosting her cabin in 2019, she’s earned $39,593, fueling her passion for travel while providing guests with a quiet getaway in her off-the-grid cabin.
