Airbnb listings searchable in Concur Travel

As guests increasingly choose options such as Airbnb for business travel, the company is expanding its partnership with Concur.

In addition to working with Concur to help companies using Airbnb to manage travel and track expenses through TripLink, Concur will soon incorporate Airbnb listings into their search and booking tool. When employees – from companies that opt in – browse for travel accommodations, Airbnb listings will appear in their Concur search results. This is the first time Airbnb listings will appear on a corporate travel partner’s platform.

Airbnb is already seeing interest from companies like Autodesk, Box and Salesforce about bringing this functionality to their employees via Concur. And, they’ve shared valuable feedback with us – noting the integration will increase efficiency by providing a way to compare Airbnb listings side-by-side with hotels.

According to Airbnb, travel managers have expressed that they want more ways to book and manage Airbnb — similar to how they manage other suppliers. Concur customers include 70 percent of Fortune 100 and 500 companies.

Expanding this partnership builds on on Airbnb’s continued commitment to working with the travel community the way they work best. This is one of the reasons employees from more than 250,000 companies – in over 230 countries and territories – have signed up to use Airbnb for work. In 2016 alone, the number of business trips on Airbnb tripled. And today, nearly 15 percent of nights booked on Airbnb are for work.
