It’s been a busy few days before Airbnb’s first earnings call as a public company — it launched a global brand campaign touting hosts, and introduced a flexible date search feature to accommodate price-conscious travelers and digital nomads. The feature, which appears to be novel in the short-term rental industry, is a mixed bag. Hotels, such as Marriott International, as well as airlines and Google Flights, have long enabled consumers to see how the price of their hotel stay or flight would be affected by choosing different dates.
Below is how Marriott does it for a specific hotel. You can see that the stay would cost $121 per night on February 2, and only $111 the next night, for instance.
Airbnb’s new feature does not provide that level of granularity.
Instead, Airbnb’s flexible date search, while valuable in some respects to prospective guests, is somewhat more limited. On Airbnb, users can’t see how rates might change on different dates for a specific property, but they can view availabilities and different rates at other properties on other dates.
The way it works is when searching for a stay on Airbnb, users can input their desired dates of stay, and also choose to view plus or minus one, three or seven days.
For example, when searching for March 8-12 stays in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and selecting the option to view properties and rates for plus or minus seven days, one can view a a four-bedroom, two-bath property for $100 per night on those dates, but also see a $45 per night stay March 7-9 in an “adorable north side carriage house,” for example.
So one can view various prices and properties on different dates, but if you have fallen in love with a specific property, one can’t see how its rate would change based on various dates of stay.
One valid reason, though, for the functionality limitation is that rate changes on short-term rentals tend to not change nearly as often as those for hotels, which often use revenue management and dynamic pricing tools.
The various stays can be selected on a map as another way to view them.
Airbnb stated that one can also search for a weekend getaway, a week-long vacation, as well as month-long or months-long stays, but I couldn’t immediately view these as the rollout was ongoing.
Airbnb pitched the flexible search launch as providing more exposure and business for hosts under the theory that if consumers couldn’t find the right fit for specific dates, then they can view additional choices and properties for alternate dates.
Airbnb stated that the wider choices should fit in nicely with the remote work and digital nomad trends, as well.
“Remote work and learning are giving those fortunate enough to be able to work from home greater freedom to choose when they travel,” Airbnb said. “According to our new travel trends report, one quarter of Americans would consider traveling during off-peak times of the year or the week. And in 2021 to date, more than one third of people searching our platform have been flexible in terms of the date or location of their stay.”
Connecting Innovative Greeks the world over
Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis takes part in the Innovative Greeks teleconference. The initiative is part of the effort by the Hellenic Federation of Enterprises (SEV), in cooperation with Endeavor Greece, to create a community of “Innovative Greeks” and to connect innovation-inclined Greeks around the world. According to SEV Director General Alexandros Chatzopoulos, the goal of the endeavor is to bring together managers at international corporations, successful startuppers, investors and researchers in a new, digital community that will share knowledge, connections and resources with fast-growing Greek startups. The first “Innovative Greeks” Digital Conference was held on March 2-3. [Dimitris Papamitsos/PM’s Office/Intime News]
Greece Extends Covid – 19 Travel Restrictions into March
The Hellenic Civil Aviation Authority (HCAA) on Sunday extended rules and restrictions for all international flights to Greece, as part of the Greek government’s efforts to curb the spread of the coronavirus (Covid-19) in the country.
The 7-day quarantine measure for all arrivals from abroad remains in place as well as special restrictions for flights to Greece from the UK, Albania, North Macedonia and Russia.
According to the HCAA’s updated aviation directives (NOTAMS), the following travel restrictions will remain in place until Monday, March 8 at midnight:
PLF remains mandatory
The submission of the Passenger Locator Form (PLF) by all passengers of international flights to Greece remains mandatory.
The rule also applies to Greek citizens and permanent residents of Greece who travel abroad on flights (outbound travel). They are required to fill out the PLF form before their departure from Greece and present it at border checkpoints.
Mandatory negative Covid-19 test result
All travelers from abroad must submit a negative Covid-19 test result (PCR) performed up to 72 hours before arrival in Greece and may also be requested to take a rapid Covid-19 test upon entry (depending on the data provided on the PLF forms). If a passenger is selected for a rapid test and is positive for the coronavirus then he/she must quarantine for a total of 14 days.
7-day quarantine for all arrivals
All passengers entering Greece from any foreign country, including European Union member states, must self-isolate either at their home (for permanent residents) or at the place of temporary residence declared on the PLF, for 7 days. If they are to stay in Greece for a shorter period, the quarantine restriction is valid for that period of time, ie until their departure.
Non-EU citizens allowed into Greece
The temporary ban on entry into Greece from outside the EU has also been updated. Only citizens from the following 10 countries are excluded from the ban: UK, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand, Rwanda, South Korea, Thailand, United Arab Emirates, Russian Federation and Israel.
All arrivals to Greece from the UK and the UAE are required to take a rapid test for Covid-19 upon arrival.
Flights from Turkey remain banned
The HCAA has extended the travel ban for flights from Turkey to Greece. Flights between Greece – Turkey remain suspended.
Special restrictions for arrivals from UK, Albania, North Macedonia, Russia
All arrivals from the UK must take a PCR test after their seventh day of quarantine in the Greece. If the test is positive the quarantine will be in force for 14 days. If the test is negative the quarantine ends.
Flights from Albania and North Macedonia can only land in Athens
All flights to and from Greece from Albania and North Macedonia will continue to operate only through Athens International Airport (AIA). Until the restriction is lifted there will be no routes from those countries to any other Greek airports.
Arrivals from Russia
Only 500 permanent residents of Russia per week are allowed to enter Greece on flights landing (only) at the airports of Athens, Thessaloniki and Heraklion.
Domestic travel: Only essential trips allowed
It is noted that the non-essential travel restriction for domestic flights (travel between prefectures) in Greece has been extended until 6am on Monday, March 8.
