Airbnb Reveals Which Amenities Aussie Travellers Value Most, 1 in 2 Aussie Travellers Consider Social Media When Making Holiday Booking Decisions
According to a consumer survey commissioned by Airbnb*, an overwhelming 97 percent of Australian travellers surveyed say amenities impact their travel experience. And while accommodations have the highest impact on holiday quality, amenities come in a very close second for Australian travellers.
Comfort over connectivity
As for the most important traits travellers look for in an amenity? The majority of Australians (57%) rate functionality first, like having a coffee maker or a full set of wine glasses and thoughtfulness second, like a bottle of wine, a bicycle to get around town, or a beach bag already packed with everything needed for a day in the sun
Pools, parking, family
Everyone loves the luxury and look of a beautiful pool, but perks like free parking, and family friendly amenities rise to the top too. The majority of Australians (54%) prefer free parking. And travellers holidaying with their family prioritise family-friendly amenities.
And while practical things like kitchens and washers rank highly among both Australians and global travellers, according to the survey, nothing beats that Instagrammable pool! In fact, more than half of Australians (51%) surveyed admit they consider how their holiday will look on social media when booking their holiday accommodations.
