Anvil supports the launch of Airbnb’s new business-travel category

Back to blog

Airbnb has recently announced global expansion plans to meet the growing needs of all travellers, with business travel now a prime market for the short-term rental giant.

A number of Airbnb’s plans will have a direct impact on the offerings for its business travel base. "We want to become Airbnb for everyone," an Airbnb spokesperson said. "Today's workforce is included in this goal. As we expand Airbnb to meet the needs of all travellers, we're taking the same approach with business travel."

Having worked with Airbnb for some time now, Anvil can already capture Airbnb accommodation reservations directly into its award-winning travel risk management system, Riskmatics®. The Airbnb connection works in the same way as Anvil's direct GDS connections, ensuring a smooth and secure transfer of data.

With Anvil’s direct connection to Airbnb, should clients wish to move away from the more traditional hotel booking route and source accommodation via Airbnb, they can do so safe in the knowledge that their booking details are automatically captured.
