Why do people in France host?

In early June, we asked you to take a short survey to find out why you choose to host  on Airbnb. You were one of more than 1,400 respondents. For that, we can’t thank you enough.

Here are some of the highlights from the survey: 

Thanks to the hosts who have responded to the survey. Here are other reasons why people in France host:

“I am a host to pay university fees for my son”
“I am a host because I love hosting. It makes me happy”
“I am a host to finance the building renovations”
“I want to offer an authentic French experience”
“The extra money allows me to travel and to learn more”
“I am a host to support my retirement pension”
“The extra money I earn is dedicated to buy some local food when I’m traveling around France”
“I am a host because I love meeting new people from all around the world”
“The extra money allows me to go on holidays with my daughter”
“I keep the extra money to spend it in the start-up I am about to launch”

We wanted to say a big thank you to our community.
