The world will be your home! 🙂
You could be reading the title again and again. I don’t blame you though. It’s just too good to be true. But then again, this news is real. At a time where everyone yearned for traveling more than ever, Airbnb’s Live Anywhere on Airbnb has fulfilled every wanderlust’s desire again. We’re talking about living and travelling around the world, experiencing the best of life, for FREE. Man, that’s a dream!
And yes, one of em’ could be you! Anyone is eligible to be in the list. From young families to remote workers, creatives, empty nesters, and more, Airbnb is seeking a diverse set of 12 individuals who can be part of the program for 12 consecutive months from July 2021 to July 2022. Airbnb will assist with listing suggestions, local Experiences and more. Do you even need to think twice? I mean just at the photos from world’s most stunning spots! That could be where you’ll be traveling to 🙂
Here’s an interesting fact. You should know that this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity is inspired by the growing flexibility to live and work anywhere. Well, isn’t that on everyone’s bucket list anyway? Me, guilty! According to the Airbnb Report on Travel and Living, 11 percent of long-term stay bookers in 2021 reported living a nomadic lifestyle. Not just that though! About 74 percent of consumers surveyed across five countries showing interest in living someplace other than where their employer is based after the pandemic is over. Interesting, right?
How does Live Anywhere on Airbnb works?
If you’re the chosen one, you will be able to live exclusively in Airbnb listings for approximately a year. Lodging concern? Naaaah! With Airbnb covering the full cost of accommodation with transportation allowance, you’ll be on full blast. The list is as below:
- Credit for accommodations
- Transportation allowance
- Listing suggestions
- Local Experiences
As the idea of this program is to shape the future of long-term living on Airbnb, in return, you will need to share your experiences from this programme. Whether it’s joining Zoom meetings by the beach, taking family on the ultimate road trip, or learning a new language in a favorite city–you and the rest of the participants can make the world your home. Piece of cake!
The applications for Live Anywhere on Airbnb are now until June 30th, 2021. The luck 12 will be selected by the panel of interviewers in July. Nervous? Don’t be! You got this, Hip Hearts! Once you have been chosen, you’ll begin traveling in September 2021. Followed by a complete vaccination process of course. There’s still time! For more information, see the Selection Terms.
Like Ibn Battuta once said, “Traveling – it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller.” So, what are you waiting for? You truly deserve it!
