*Airbnb price data is from actual business travel reservations by guests on the Airbnb platform. Hotel price data is the blended average daily hotel rates from the Business Travel News Corporate Travel Index. Data compared was for January through November of 2017 and Airbnb data was based on reservations for entire homes consisting of one bedroom and studio listings. Amounts used in the calculations excluded occupancy taxes and FX/VAT fees. The global savings (49.4%) were calculated on a weighted average of daily rates by number of nights traveled in US and international locations. Because there was a higher volume of international nights booked, the global average reflects more international savings (54.5%) than US (38.6%). Savings are not guaranteed and will depend on the listing actually booked.
