“We are all seeking to “Belong” We all want to connect and share, to feel accepted and feel safe. Imagine having that anywhere. Airbnb stands for something bigger than travel. We imagine a world where you can … belong anywhere!”

The core value of Airbnb, in short, is “You Belong Anywhere.”. The world in Airbnb’s perspective is nothing more than a hospitality universe, which everyone can find home and shelter anywhere. Every host in Airbnb are your family and don’t feel awkward at all.  So what could we help the Host and Guest enhance the experience of the Airbnb journey?

It has over 3,000,000 lodging listings in 65,000 cities and 192 countries, and the cost of lodging is set by the host. Like all hospitality services, Airbnb is a form of collaborative consumption and sharing.

PERSONA

INSIGHT

Over 67% host’s major income was not profited from Airbnb‘s revenue.  Most of the host have their own occupation as normal. It’s a dilemma between the inconvenient issue cutting out from work to receive the guest and the safety issue which trust the stranger coming inside your house without your presence. As a guest, it will be very embarrassing to interrupting the host schedule. On the other hand, as a new arrival from other cities, the uncertainty of the safety issue when arriving at the house to check-in is quite nervous as well. It should be a better solution to these concern.
