Our primary focus, with this partnership, is the hinterland - bringing financial opportunities and empowerment to the women residing in the rural regions of Goa. This MoU with Airbnb is a step towards achieving our aim of creating a more inclusive tourism ecosystem in Goa, that empowers local communities by driving micro-entrepreneurship and focuses on bringing quality tourism experiences to guests from all over the world."

We have witnessed commendable efforts put in by the Government of Goa towards this cause and are fully committed to working closely with them to drive responsible tourism in the State, through awareness campaigns, knowledge sharing sessions and capacity building programs.”

About Airbnb

Airbnb was born in 2007 when two Hosts welcomed three guests to their San Francisco home, and has since grown to over 4 million Hosts who have welcomed more than 1 billion guest arrivals across over 220 countries and regions. Every day, Hosts offer unique stays and one-of-a-kind activities that make it possible for guests to experience the world in a more authentic, connected way. 

As the only platform offering hosted travel and the ability to live anywhere on a global scale, Airbnb has become a noun and a verb and most traffic to our platform remains organic. We will continue to invest in innovations that expand the travel market and lead the way in turning travel into a way of life.
