Airbnb launches 50 virtual tours and master classes

From 2016, Airbnb's private rental service offers a service that allows you to find tours, excursions and interesting activities in the city you want to visit. And this week, due to global isolation, the service decided to put this service online.

Now users will be able to take part in virtual travels through Zoom, and Airbnb will provide registered homeowners with free access to software and remote conferences. At the time of launch, about 50 webinars, lessons and tours are offered, featuring homeowners from more than 30 countries. Airbnb says they will be hosting several thousand online sessions in the coming months. One of the available online tours offers a tour of Chernobyl, where you can even meet dogs living there. Or, for example, you can visit a goat reserve if you like to do so. And of course, the service is full of standard cooking and fitness lessons.

The company positions the new service as a way to help owners of rental properties to smooth out losses, as well as give people the opportunity to do something interesting while they are stuck at home. Last week Airbnb said it will provide $250 million to support owners whose businesses have been affected by the pandemic.
