1. Share the Best Local Eats as a Food Guide

As a food and drink enthusiast, you’ve likely tried a number of local restaurants and bars, and have an opinion about them.

Whether you’re a member of Yelp’s Elite Squad or have access to exclusive dining experiences, you can earn extra income by immersing newcomers in the local food culture as an Airbnb Experience Host.

Airbnb Experiences offer visiting guests one-of-a-kind, paid experiences with a local expert– you. Food and drink experiences are one of many outings you can lead, if you and your planned experience meet Airbnb’s standards.

What You Should Know About Airbnb Experiences

It’s not as easy as taking guests to your weekend haunts. In order for your experience to be approved by Airbnb and be highly-sought by guests, you’ll need to bring a unique spin or perspective to the table.

Once you find your niche, you can leverage Airbnb’s robust user community. According to Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky, over two million guests stayed at an Airbnb for New Year’s 2016; this large user base means your listing has greater visibility, compared to lesser known outfits.

And how can you ensure your listing sticks out, so that you’re reaching guests’ screens?
