How to Game Airbnb, Airbnb - GAME ON!
Airbnb is the frenemy of the legal B&B / Inn world. And while we won't say, "If you can't beat them, join them", we will say, "Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer."
If you look at Airbnb as an opportunity because it is cheaper to deal with than most OTAs, take advantage of it and we mean "take advantage" in the purest sense of the word. The non-legal, non-inspected properties are using it, and while we here at PAII are working hard with AHLA to level the playing field so that Airbnb hosts are paying their fair share, let's not miss an opportunity while we fight.
Learn how to leverage an Airbnb listing properly to be able to compete - and beat - those Airbnb illegal rentals stealing business from your property. Learn what pictures, text and additional information to include to make a stand-out Airbnb listing over those that are not legal, while educating the public about why staying at a legal B&B has a lot of benefits over the non-legal listings.
