Taking a family vacation this summer We looked at the numbers. and found that a family of four in the U S could save an average. of 27 by booking an Airbnb listing instead of a hotel this. summer Based on rates in five of the most popular family vacation. destinations in the U S families could save an average of 131. per day on family sized accommodations by booking a home on. 2 A growing number of families choose Airbnb because they. want more amenities than a hotel and want a local experience. with their family, In 2015 millions of Airbnb trips were taken by families around. the world including nearly 700 000 trips by American families.

Families get more space for less money by vacationing on Airbnb. As we approach the summer more and more families are beginning to. plan their summer vacations And we know that affordability is a key. consideration, We crunched the numbers by studying how much it would cost a. family of four two adults and two children to book family sized. accommodations in some of the top family vacation destinations in the. U S this summer, We found that a family of four could save an average of 27 on. their accommodations by booking an Airbnb listing instead of a. hotel this summer based on rates in five of the most popular family. vacation destinations in the U S By booking Airbnb listings instead of. traditional hotels families could save an average of 131 per day on. accommodations in those destinations It s no surprise then that over. 30 of Airbnb family travelers say they would not have stayed as long in. their destination without Airbnb, To begin we selected five of the top family destinations in the.
