Gujarat Govt Partners with Airbnb to Boost Tourism & Offer More Rental Properties

AirBnB

The first thing tourists and travellers worry about when travelling to different states in India is the place to stay. Often than not, hotels turn out to be expensive and rather a hassle to stay in. This is when smaller rental properties come to the rescue, that offer better experiences at lesser the price.

Airbnb, a popular global marketplace for rental properties, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Gujarat Government to boost tourism and invite more tourists to western most state of India. Every state in India has its own tourism initiatives, like Kerala and Madhya Pradesh.

Western tourists, specifically, prefer to stay in BnBs (Bed and Breakfast) as they are much comfortable and relatively easier to check in to, and also offer amenities hotels would not. The bread & breakfast concept is what started from the west and this is what airbnb offers as well.

“Airbnb witnessed phenomenal growth in the state in 2015. We are delighted to partner with the Government of Gujarat to bring homestays and travel options in the state onto an international platform,” said Amanpreet Bajaj, Country Manager of Airbnb India, in a statement.

Gujarat has also shown growth in terms of airbnb listings and the number of development projects in the state. The two entities wish to create a positive experience for travellers to the state with so much history and significance.

With airbnb, travellers will also be able to access areas that do not get covered by itineraries in general. Airbnb gives these tourists and travellers flexibility to schedule their stay and choose the type of area they would want to move into for a short period of time.

Gujarat has a long coastline and plenty of beaches, old cities like Ahmedabad and Junagarh, along with the unique salt marsh of the Great Rann of Kutch. All of these combined with homestays and equable weather offer a wonderful experience to tourists, both domestic and international.
