Airbnb Wants to Be Your Digital Concierge, Too

Airbnb is moving forward with plans to launch new travel services, such as restaurant reservations and city tours. The move would turn Airbnb from a home-rental service to an all-encompassing travel concierge.

Airbnb is testing this project, nicknamed Trips, via a separate mobile app. According to people familiar with the matter, it’s a high-priority initiative within the company.
