Looking for a home away from home starting July 2021? Airbnb offers not, one, but hundreds of such homes, for free, for those looking to embark on a round the world journey.
According to the official ‘Live Anywhere’ contest page, Airbnb is looking for a variety of people with different backrounds and social status, varying from remote workers to families and digital nomads.
“We are seeking a diverse set of 12 individuals and up to three companions each who can be part of the program for 12 consecutive months from July 2021 to July 2022, 10 of which will include traveling to and living in listings on Airbnb.”
“Whether you are looking to join Zoom meetings by the beach, take your family on the ultimate road trip, or learn a new language in a favorite city—this program is for you. We’ll ask that you share your experiences with us which could help shape the future of travel and living on Airbnb. ”
The company is not only offering free accommodation for the entire year, but also transportation vouchers, suggestions for listing and local experiences. The travellers will share their impressions with Airbnb, much like in a quality assessment study.
You can apply here until the 30th of June, 2021.
