• AirBnb delivers

Peer to peer accommodation site AirBnb contributes GBP502m a year in economic activity for the UK. Bookers through the site stay an average 4.6 nights, and spend more than double the average visitor, according to research by the Centre for London.

According to the survey, 80% of hosts rent out the home they live in, and rent for 33 nights a year on average. AirBnb says many renters rely on the additional income to help pay bills, or support a move to self-employment or freelancing.
