More Than Just a Room: How Airbnb Can Help You Travel Like a Local -- on a Budget

YourUpdateTV

Want to travel like a local, but on a budget? Airbnb is a great option for those looking to experience a destination authentically without breaking the bank. Recently, Airbnb Superhosts, Rhonda Voo and Eric Alan conducted a satellite media tour to talk about their experience being Airbnb hosts and how it helped them connect with people and have authentic experiences. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/6OnoHquTFMg In the current economic environment, people want to travel affordably. And after years of being isolated during the pandemic, they're looking for ways to connect with people and have authentic experiences. With the pandemic finally over, this summer is anticipated to be the biggest travel season of all time. Airbnb is expecting a record 300 million people to travel and host on Airbnb this year. To prepare, Airbnb is making the most extensive set of improvements to the platform ever, starting with the introduction of Airbnb Rooms, an all-new take on the original Airbnb. They’re also launching over 50 new features and upgrades that address top feedback from our guests and Hosts across the end-to-end Airbnb experience. Introducing Airbnb Rooms Airbnb began as a way to stay in a room in someone else’s home. This original idea of sharing a home offers two unique benefits. First, it’s more affordable for guests. More than 80% of private rooms are under $100/night, with an average rate of $67/night. Second, staying with a Host is a great way to meet someone new and experience the city like a local. In the current economic environment, people want to travel affordably. And after years of being isolated during the pandemic, they're looking for ways to connect with people and have authentic experiences. Now is the perfect time to stay in a room in someone else’s home. But for even more people to try it, they have to feel comfortable staying with a Host. Airbnb Rooms, an all-new take on the original Airbnb. Guests have told us that they want to know more about who they're staying with. Every Airbnb Room features a Host Passport, which helps guests get to know their Host before booking their stay. Airbnb has also created a Rooms category with over 1 million listings, redesigned filters and added new privacy features. 50+ new features and upgrades based on Hosts and Guests feedback: In preparation for an anticipated record-setting travel season, Airbnb is improving nearly every aspect of their service, here are some of the upgrades: Host Passport - Exclusive to Airbnb Rooms, the Host Passport helps you get to know your Host before booking your stay. Simply tap the Host Passport to view a larger photo and details Hosts have shared about themselves, including where they went to school, what they do for work, a fun fact about themselves, the amount of social interaction during the stay, and much more. Airbnb Rooms category - Airbnb Rooms are easy to discover, with a new category featuring a curated set of 1 million private bedrooms. Each listing includes access to shared spaces, such as the kitchen, living room, and backyard. Redesigned filters - Redesigned the “type of place” filter to make it easy to switch between Airbnb Rooms, entire homes, or all types of places. It’s simple to view the average price for each type of place with an enhanced price filter that updates based on your choice. New privacy features - Privacy is important. All Airbnb Rooms will clearly indicate if the bedroom door has a lock. The listing page also shows whether the bathrooms are shared or private, and whether people other than the Host will be in the home during your stay. To improve our service, Airbnb took a design-driven approach. They started by storyboarding the guest and Host journey - from sign up to checking out and created a blueprint of the experience - every screen, every policy, and every interaction with customer support mapped out. Then, analyzed millions of customer service tickets and mapped them across the journey. They also reviewed thousands of social media posts and spoke with hundreds of thousands of guests and Hosts about how to improve Airbnb. To find out more about the Airbnb 2023 Summer Release and how to become a host, visit Airbnb. About Rhonda and Erica Rhonda Voo and Eric Alan are superhosts of a private room in their stunning home in LA. Rhonda and Eric are both creatives at heart, pursuing careers in art and advertising – over the years they transformed their modest home into what is now an architecturally significant landmark in LA. After raising their three daughters, they noticed there was plenty of extra room around the house and decided to open their home to guests on Airbnb. Their experience continues to be rewarding — both financially and personally, making meaningful connections with visitors from around the globe.

Vacation® Inc. Announces $6M Series A Funding Round

Vacation®, Inc.

Vacation®, an award-winning sunscreen company that’s on a mission to make sunscreen fun, has announced the completion of a $6 million Series A funding round. Led by Silas Capital, an emerging growth equity and venture capital firm that invests behind exceptional next-generation consumer brands, the oversubscribed round includes investments from True Beauty Ventures, BFG Partners, Sonoma Brands, Marla Beck (Co-Founder and former CEO of Blue Mercury), David Grutman (Founder of Groot Hospitality), Heela Yang Tsuzuki (Co-Founder and CEO of Sol de Janeiro), and others. Vacation®’s rapid growth can be attributed to its ability to bring a fun, unexpected new approach to the sunscreen category. Pairing best-in-class skincare and suncare science with novel and innovative formats (such as a whipped cream-inspired SPF ), its “leisure-enhancing” products regularly go viral on social media platforms, organically racking up views in the millions and leading to inventory selling out across retailers. In addition to novel formats and best-in-class formulas, their cult-favorite products also focus heavily on the sensorial experience. They are carefully designed to make you look, feel, and smell like you’ve been to paradise and back, and are coupled with an immersive brand world that helps transport users to a place of bliss. Vacation® plans to use this infusion of capital to: Expand its distribution nationwide, entering all doors of Ulta Beauty, Nordstrom, and Anthropologie, as well as inking new partnerships with BlueMercury, CIBO, and Aerie. In addition to national retail partnerships, Vacation® will deepen its commitment to local “leisure destinations” such as The Standard, Kith, Ace Hotel, Palisociety, Mondrian, Fellow Barber, C.O.

Founded by Marty Bell, Lach Hall, and Dakota Green, the trio worked alongside Dr. Elizabeth Hale, Board Certified Dermatologist and an SVP of The Skin Cancer Foundation, as well as world-renowned perfumers Carlos Huber and Rodrigo Flores-Roux to create “Leisure-Enhancing” SPF products that are both unique in the category - take their whipped cream-inspired “Classic Whip Sunscreen Mousse” - and which make the wearer look, feel, and smell like they’ve been to paradise and back.

Stay One Step Ahead: Master the Essentials of Cybersecurity Readiness!

YourUpdateTV

From data breaches to phishing scams, cybercrime is on the rise, and it's time to arm yourself with the knowledge and tools to stay safe in the digital world. Recently, Dave Lewis, Global Advisory Chief Information Security Officer at Cisco Security, conducted a satellite media tour to share tips and tricks to outsmart cyber criminals and stay safe online. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/VDTqR8LqwOM After surveying over 6,700 cybersecurity leaders worldwide, Cisco found that less than 15% of companies were ‘Mature’ enough (or considered to have advanced enough security) to defend against modern cybersecurity risks, even though 82% of respondents said they expect a cybersecurity incident to disrupt their business in the next two years. While this may not seem to directly impact consumers at first, the aftermath can take a large toll on the public, causing emails, credit cards and personal information to be leaked on the internet. Here are some tips that Lewis shared: · Be a safe shopper: o Never use a debit card, use a credit card, I like one specifically for online purchases. o Don’t save your personal or credit card information on any company site – If they company doesn’t have it, the company can’t lose it, and the criminals can’t steal it. o Closely watch your online accounts. · Build cyber street smarts - Criminals will use information from a breach against you: o Evaluate the company before sharing personal information. o Only share essential information with any company or third-party. o Know the signs of a scam - If it seems too good to be true, if there’s too much pressure. · Personal resilience - Expect breaches: o Use multi-factor on all accounts. o Use separate email addresses and credit cards – our phones may make this easier. o Talk about it when it happens – empathy and compassion, kinder than necessary. According to Cisco, 60% of respondents said they had a cybersecurity incident in the last year, which cost 41% of organizations affected at least $500,000. While forward-looking businesses are investing in resilience and focused on improving their ability to defend against and minimize the impact of an attack, consumers also must take an active role in protecting their own information, especially as breaches become more and more inevitable. To learn more about this and Cisco’s Cybersecurity Readiness Index, visit: cisco.com/go/readinessindex BIO: Dave Lewis is a Global Advisory CISO at Cisco Security. He has 25 years of experience in IT security operations and management including a decade dealing with critical infrastructure security. He is the founder of the security site Liquidmatrix Security Digest and writes columns for Daily Swig, Forbes and several other publications.

The offer is intended as a one-time use and is valid for Dine-in only not to be combined with other offers. “We always want to provide value for our Guests and this is a way to extend that value a little further during these economically challenging times. We figured that the bad news of Bed Bath and Beyond closing for their customers could be softened just a little bit by extending this discount for them to join us for a an awesome meal”, concluded Dellamarggio.
