(and traveling as a Workation)” Chesky pointed out the figure clearly: “In the second half of last year, over 20% of stays were more than a month and more than 50% were more than a week.”

International bookings and long-haul accommodation recovered at a faster rate than in Q1 2021. This is to quit being tied to your home or work life.
