After a year without travel, are you dreaming of traveling the world without being tied to “home”? Are you a digital nomad or thinking about taking the leap? Empty nester, or recently retired? You're going to want to see this.
Airbnb is out with another once-in-a-lifetime experience: A chance to live in Airbnbs around the world, on Airbnb's dime, for an entire year. This is just the latest contest we've seen from Airbnb in recent years, giving travelers a chance to do see the world and stay in Airbnbs at little-to-no cost.
Does this pique your interest? Submit your application via Airbnb's form. Here's the low-down.
Airbnb is accepting 12 applicants to live entirely in Airbnbs around the world from July 2021 to July 2022. And each applicant can bring up to three companions, so partners and families are welcome.
Airbnb will cover the following costs:
- Credit for Airbnb stays
- Transportation allowance of $5,000 to $12,000, depending on how many companions you have
- Listing suggestions
- Local experiences at destinations
As the traveler, you'll plan your adventures and destinations!
In return, Airbnb is looking for feedback on products and resources that can improve long-term Airbnb guest experiences, and the best long-term stays for solo travelers, partners, and families. Seems like a decent tradeoff, right?
I think we can safely assume that we're all interested in this awesome experience.
If you can work remote, don't work, or are able to travel for 12 consecutive months starting in July, this might be right up your alley. So here's how to apply!
Apply on Airbnb's form by June 30 at 11:59 PM EST.
To be considered, you'll need to:
- Have a valid passport through February 1, 2023
- Speak and understand conversational English
- Be a resident of one of these countries (yes, that includes the U.S.)
The application also asks if you have any experience living long-term outside of your home, and if you'd be willing to share your experience with Airbnb to improve long-term rental experiences.
You will also need to share what excites you most about the potential of living nomadically in a 500-word essay-style response.
Does this unique opportunity have you daydreaming about setting off around the world for a year? Don't be shy: apply!
