In 2023, women Hosts in India, constituting nearly 30% of the country’s Airbnb hosting community, have been instrumental in creating unique guest experiences. Indian women Hosts collectively earned over INR 2 billion (approximately 200 crores / USD 28 million) in 2023, showcasing the profound impact of women in stimulating local economies and supporting community growth.

These women not only offer exceptional experiences to travellers but also empower others by creating job opportunities, especially for those in underserved communities.

Talking about this, Amanpreet Bajaj, General Manager – Airbnb India, Southeast Asia, Hong Kong and Taiwan said, “Women play a vital role in fuelling economies, by driving growth & social transformation. At Airbnb, we are committed to creating an inclusive, diverse, equitable community for our women Hosts & guests.
