If you’ve landed here, it’s likely you want to earn more money leading people onto activities you love.
The events market has changed considerably over the last two years due to COVID-19.
But one way you can bounce back and earn a substantial income is to provide an activity or an experience via sites like Airbnb to target visiting tourists throughout the UK.
These experiences are led by locals to give tourists a taste of your local area, whether it’s a tour, a class, or something unique, you can show off your city, craft, cause and culture by hosting an experience.
Step 1: Becoming a host on Airbnb
There are two avenues you can take:
- Becoming an Airbnb host
- Becoming an experienced host
Many people we meet in this industry tend to do the two. Becoming a host on Airbnb is a full-time job and a lucrative opportunity.
But more and more hosts are beginning to be more innovative and discover ways they can impress their guests, provide special experiences and earn extra money because of it.
How do you do this?
Become a host and rent your home or a room in your home out on the platform. Next, register to host an experience, where you can earn money as a local tour guide, for example.
If you want to host your property on Airbnb experiences, or even to add your property to search listings, we would advise looking into Airbnb management in Glasgow (like this company), or in a city near you to make the most out of it as a business venture.
Airbnb Host Experiences: Do what you love and get paid
Experiences of every kind are being hosted on popular sites like Airbnb. These include cooking, crafting, kayaking and more.
Host as often as you like, whenever you like. You can adjust your dates, times and find the rhythm that works best for you.
You might require a business license depending on the activity or type of experience you advertise – check with your local authority. Usually, licenses are required for food, alcohol and transport.
