Your Chance To Live & Work Anywhere With Airbnb
If there’s anything we learned from recent events, is that it is actually possible to live and work from anywhere in the world! Since almost everyone has been working from home these days, why not take it further and work from anywhere? Surveys among companies have shown that work-from-home and the hybrid-work model is here to stay. So, now that you can work from anywhere, try your luck at applying for the Airbnb Live Anywhere program for the chance to live exclusively at Airbnb listings AROUND THE WORLD for one year!
Airbnb is looking for 12 participants to take part for the period of July 2021 to July 2022, where you can bring up to 3 other participants along, and will be provided with an allowance for transportation, too!
What’s Included In The Program
Should you be one of the participants selected for the Airbnb Live Anywhere program, you’ll be provided with accommodations at Airbnb listings for approximately a year. Participants will also be provided with a transportation allowance for the whole year. There isn’t much elaboration on this transportation allowance, but it’s our understanding that participants will manage this allowance and work their travel plans around it. Who knows, you might be able to go to more locations if you’re good at getting travel deals!
The people at Airbnb will also provide their recommendations for the best listings and Local Experiences in the area you’re headed to, and cover the costs. What a great way to see the world, experience new cultures, and still keep your job! Perhaps, it may even be the break you need if you’ve been thinking about a career change for a while.
What You Will Need To Do
Hey, as we mentioned, it’s a program, not a prize. Well, not the usual kind. If you are selected for the program, you will be expected to provide some intel in exchange. This is part of Airbnb’s efforts in understanding travellers and what people look for in accommodations.
Participants of the Airbnb Live Anywhere program will need to provide insight and information that can help improve the long-term living experience on Airbnb, which type of accommodations are suitable for the different types of travellers, and the experience of hosting your own residence while living in another country. Don’t worry too much about this last part, though, as we understand that this is only for those who choose to do so. But if you do, think about that extra income you’re making while travelling the world.

For a program such as this, you might be who Airbnb is looking for is you’re one of these:-

So, if you think this is for you, give it a go at Airbnb.com. Application closes at 11:59pm EST on 30 June 2021, so act fast! For a glimpse at how other guests have been living the Airbnb life, check out the Senior Nomads, international journalist Imani Bashir, and digital nomad Samantha Scott.
