Travelers are looking for one thing in their Airbnb vacation spot ahead of the holidays: uniqueness.

According to a new study by Confused.com, Google searches for “different types of Airbnb” are up 400% over the last 12 months as pandemic-weary people seek to break the cycle of stay-at-home life.

“There’s a lot more interest from holidaymakers in finding a unique stay,” Jessica Willock, a home insurance expert at Confused.com, told The Post. “In comparison to typical hotels, Airbnb offers a variety of unique and different stays, making it a fun option for travelers who want to break away from tradition.”

Willock explained that while the travel industry is “picking up,” adventurers are hoping to make the most out of the holiday season by booking unique and exciting spaces for their stays.

“Not only do these unique properties break away from the norm, but also include an Instagrammable factor as visitors want to boast about their holidays on their social media feeds,” she said. “As the interest in Airbnb only continues to soar, owners could be taking the opportunity to cash in on their weird and wonderful properties by putting their homes on Airbnb.”
