American vacation rental company Airbnb, looks to take advantage of the upcoming travel surge by announcing a new program where it will sponsor 12 individuals to live anywhere for a year.

According to its Report on Travel & Living, there was a spike in bookings for stays of 28 days or longer compared to 2019. Amidst an increase in work flexibility, more people are turning towards a more nomadic lifestyle with some looking to continue the way of life even after the pandemic.

Airbnb announced the launch of a program called “Live Anywhere on Airbnb,” where it will support a diverse set of 12 individuals to live in any of its listings for 12 consecutive months from July 2021 to July 2022. The company is looking to grab experiences from these participants as a basis for future platform upgrades and innovations.

Selected participants over 18 years old will be allowed to bring along three companions and receive transportation allowance and accommodations care of the company. Those who will host their own residence on the platform during the program will also be allowed to test out the experience of hosting by earning while traveling.

“The experience of living on Airbnb has been truly transformational for us,” said one-half of The Senior Nomads Debbie Campbell. “Live Anywhere on Airbnb will give even more people the opportunity to see the world through a whole new lens just as we have. We’re excited to see more people living and working from wherever they choose.”

Applications are open from now till June 30, 2021, on Airbnb’s website with the selection of the 12 participants to be made in July.
