Airbnb offers you the opportunity to live anywhere, for free for a year. How to apply?
Airbnb is looking for 12 people to live on the company's own properties around the world for a full year. Inspired by the growing demand for flexibility to work from wherever it wants, Airbnb has announced the launch of the 'Live Anywhere on Airbnb' program.
The idea is that 12 individuals with up to three companions each will be able to live exclusively on Airbnb properties for approximately one year. The company is looking for a group of people to attend from July 2021 to July 2022, with the program open to anyone from young families to solo travelers.
If this is not enough, they will cover the cost of accommodation and transportation assistance for the duration of the program. They simply ask participants to share their experiences with them, to 'help inform about future Airbnb updates and innovations'. Participants will simply need to show what their life was like and how it can be improved.
According to the Airbnb Travel and Living Report, 74% of those surveyed in five different countries expressed interest in living somewhere after the pandemic other than where their employer lives.
If you are interested, applications for the Live Anywhere program on Airbnb will be open until June 30, 2021- just click on the Airbnb website. The 12 participants will be selected by a panel of interviewers in July and will start traveling in September.
