Travel demand is still high despite economic issues and expensive costs, according to American vacation rental company Airbnb. The website reached nearly 104 million bookings between April and June, its highest number so far. From April to June, 103.7 million reservations were made. This shows a 24 percent increase over 2018 and a 25 percent increase over 2019. Travel demand remains highest in North America, where bookings are up 37 percent from the previous year. Meanwhile, Europe’s growth is lagging behind due to factors like the weaker pound. While mentioning that it was now going through its busiest summer travel season on record, the business reassured investors that it was prepared for whatever might hit the economy. According to experts, a slowdown can even be beneficial for the business. CEO Brian Chesky stated, “We think a lot of people may turn to hosting once again, so this is a big opportunity for us.” Despite removing China from the listings in July, there are still more than 6 million active listings on Airbnb.
