What short-term renters really want is to earn well and to transform their guests’ stay into an incredible experience, right? Sure! The success of tourist accommodation in the city is so great that the City Council of Porto and Airbnb have closed an important partnership which will boost tourism in the city.
This partnership has an incentive: Airbnb is supporting the Confiança Porto program, which certifies – like a quality seal – the establishments with better results in terms of safety, cleanliness, accessibility and hospitality.
All the interest in this city is not in vain! With a great history of hosts who provide guests with exceptional stays, Porto has become of growing importance to Airbnb. This is the main reason why the tourist accommodation platform wants to reciprocate, by helping their already great hosts to become even more recognised as such.
According to the data provided by the platform, nine in ten evaluations of Porto guests show that they are very happy with their stay, evaluating it with over 4 stars. Thus, the partnership between the City Council of Porto and Airbnb makes even more sense by helping promote the municipality’s accreditation program Confiança Porto.
Mónica Casañas, the platform’s marketing services administrator says that “we are committed to promoting trust in tourist accommodation in Airbnb and we want to be a good partner to cities, namely to Porto, by making safety and sustainability the main focus in the return of travelling and in the tourism sector’s recovery”.
Among the conditions established between the platform and the city is the creation of a hotline so that neighbours can communicate urgent concerns about accommodation or guest behaviour directly to Airbnb, in addition to distributing noise detectors among hosts, so that we can guarantee quiet time in the neighbourhood of tourist accommodation facilities registered in the platform.
