Maharashtra eyes more foreign tourists with Airbnb tie-up

As per a report in TOI, the Maharashtra Tourism Development Corporation (MTDC) will tie-up with Airbnb, a global aggregator in the hospitality sector, to attract foreign tourists. Apart from bed and breakfast accommodations and popular resorts, 72 unique and indigenous experiences have been developed by the state which will be listed on Airbnb for showcasing on the platform.

MTDC has 1,400 bed and breakfast joints, which is the highest in the country, but the 72 unique experiences, categorised under Mahabhraman will have to be marketed, and this is a great opportunity, said Jaykumar Rawal, Minister of Tourism, Government of Maharashtra. The memorandum of understanding will be signed this month, he added. Senior MTDC officials said since 90% of their bookings are done online so the tie-up will help boost business.
