Airbnb Trips is a new harmonized feature from the huge home-sharing application that aims to change how people use it.

Since its inception, the basic function of Airbnb has been to connect people who have extra living space to people who need a short-term rental, but the app has since expanded to become an essential part of how many people plan their trips. Rather than allowing users to make their lodging bookings on the app before moving to other sites to plan their activities and experiences, Airbnb Trips brings all that together. More than just a new venue for recommendations, the feature harnesses its position as a peer-to-peer service by connecting users with regular people who can offer tours and experiences in their home cities.

For those receiving an Airbnb Trips tour, they can be confident in the authenticity of the experience, while the service gives locals a fun way to meet travels and make some extra money.
