Airbnb offers a new wave of business travel friendly homes

The ‘Airbnb for Work’ homes have become a one-stop solution for business travellers, who seek the comfort and convenience of home while travelling for work.


The idea of business trips can give you cold feet within no time. The combination of long working hours, along with the distant unfamiliarity of a new city can generally be a bit of a hiccup. While travelling for business can have its benefits, the ability to let your hair down and unwind is essentially limited.

Business trips have carried this persona for a long time. More often than not, these travels also occur on a short notice, thus leaving you with a small window to prepare and safeguard your interests, before setting sail on your business voyage. Factors like new work surroundings, unfamiliar faces, long hours and lack of friends can amplify the feeling of isolation as well.

The idea of business travel has undergone significant changes, which has transformed the very face of work trips, around the world.
