What's it all about?

Do you have a passion or hobby that you would like to share with people? Airbnb now enables you to do exactly that. And, you will get paid for it too.

Airbnb experiences are activities designed and led by inspiring locals. They go beyond typical tours or classes by immersing guests in each host's unique world. It's an opportunity for anyone to share their hobbies, skills, or expertise without needing an extra room.

You can offer your experience for free at a time that suits you.

Airbnb handle all of the bookings and customer service so they just take a percentage commission when customers pay for your experience. 

Here are some great ideas for experiences that you could set up and run whenever you want:

1. Country Walks - Great if you live in a beautiful part of the country. 

2. Cookery Lessons - Do you have a passion for cookery? You could share this passion for a nice income. 

3. Cycling Tours - If you are a keen cyclist, you offer other cyclists a tour around your local area. 

4. History Tours - If you live near a place of Historical interest, you could set up your own history experiences and tours. 

5. Kitesurfing - You could introduce people to Kite Surfing or other hobbies such as this. 

6. Photography Experiences - Are you a keen photographer and feel you could offer people valuable skills in photography?

This is a potentially very profitable side business that you can run on weekends. If you feel that you can genuinely offer your guests value in your experience then why not give it a go?
