Are you a huge fan of Airbnb services? Well look away now because the new feature targets ‘super rich’ tourists – and not the masses of frugal travellers trying to get away for a weekend on a budget! Okay wait don’t leave, let’s check it out anyway!
Airbnb are planning to launch a new premium service for the Elite Traveller known only to the company as “Airbnb Lux” according to Bloomberg. For those people with huge bank accounts will be able to rent out mansions, penthouses and luxurious homes that meet a certain high level.
I have no idea what that ‘certain criteria’ is, but maybe it is that each property has an AI butler that can rap, or each room has a whirl pool with masseuses on hand, but right now nobody knows.
Airbnb right now are not spilling the beans on their plans to attract wealthy people who want to stay in other rich-people homes. According to a source on gizmodo they were told that “We’re continually experimenting with new ways to create meaningful experiences on Airbnb,” I don’t have any more to share on the new things we’re test driving but we have a few exciting projects in the works.”
Also Bloomberg reported that the company were planning to launch Airbnb Select, which targets wealthier travellers who prefer more of a hotel style experience. The perks for the hosts are awesome – so be sure to check out my next post on this people!
Anyway, it makes evolutionary sense that Airbnb would provide these type of luxury listings. They even offered luxurious properties to Beyoncé and some other celebs so they can share that on social media.
Even Lady Gaga had also posted on Instagram, a photo of the home she stayed at during the Super Bowl. I always wondered why the rich stay rich – I see that now they don’t pay for a damn thing! So listen up folks – work hard, have some form of talent, get rich and then you wont have to pay for anything again! Yah not so easy!
You know, even with all the celebrity backing, we don’t know how successful these high end services will be.
One thing for sure – is that I believe it will take off like a gold plated private plane!! But the worst part is I won’t be shopping in the “luxe” department. – so what do you guys really think of this ??
As always #livebetter
