January 18, 2019 OTA News No Comments Email Email

A race to be the first, a desire to live like a local, and a continued focus on value for money – Booking.com reveals what’s driving travellers into original homes, tree houses, boats and beyond.

  • From accommodations that float, to stays up in the trees, unique property types are a growing trend, with over one third of global travellers (37%)* planning to book a stay in an alternative accommodation in 2019
  • Living like a local is key for almost half (49%)** of global travellers, who believe that staying in a home-type accommodation lets them see areas of a city or parts of a country that they wouldn’t have otherwise explored
  • Keeping a close eye on the travel budget is a top priority, with almost half (45%)** of global travellers stating that staying in a home-type accommodation allows them to feel that they are getting the most value for their money

Olivier Grémillon, Vice President at Booking.com, explains: “We are seeing a clear trend among travellers to try unique types of accommodations and we understand that the perfect stay may look different for each of them. So, whether it’s an icy igloo, a cozy cabin or luxury villa you’re after –  Booking.com offers more than 5.8 million instantly bookable homes, apartments and other unique places to stay to make sure that your next special experience is just a few clicks away.”
