Tell me more

There’s a good chance that you’re familiar with Airbnb as a place to find a home from home, but what you might not know is that it’s also a platform that provides experiences too.

Airbnb Experiences are activities designed and run by people just like you, experts in their field. Special knowledge, unique skills, and insider access to local places and communities are what make Airbnb Experiences special, creating lasting connections and treasured memories for both you and your guests.

Check out how boxing superstar Keisher McLeod is offering guests the experience of a lifetime.

It’s something that you can get involved with no matter your background or current career set up. Your unique Olympic experience means you have something special to offer, and the flexibility of being a host means it can readily fit around a training schedule or life after sport.

A partnership designed for you

Being a host gives you the chance to share your expertise and passion with people from around the world, and also allows you to set up a new revenue stream to support your sporting career or a new one after retirement.

Whatever your passion or skill set, you could turn into a successful Experience. Examples range from making paella in Barcelona to mountain biking in Cape Town, to kickboxing in Bangkok. Some athletes are already hosting, such as Olympic gold medal-winning triathlete Simon Whitfield, who takes visitors paddleboarding in his hometown of Victoria, Canada.

What other hosts have to say
There’s really no limit to what you can do with your Experience, because you can reach people all over the world from the comfort of your home.
An athlete’s expertise is amazing, and if you have an extra passion that you feel you should share with other people – and that could help them feel some benefits – then I think you definitely should jump in and start doing it.
I think, especially on the Paralympic side, getting our stories out, giving hope to people and maybe inspiring the next generation is huge, especially right now.
