Travelers Can Now Book A Restaurant Through Airbnb
Thanks to its investment in reservations platform Resy, the travel service now lets you easily book at over 650 locations in the U.S.
The Airbnb app no longer just caters to lodging. If you’re planning a trip to the U.S. soon, you can also book a table for your dining needs. This partnership between Airbnb and Resy is part of the former’s effort to give app users a complete traveling experience.
In January of this year, Airbnb invested $13 million in Resy and nine months later, Airbnb’s investment is paying off. Now, the Airbnb app offers travelers the ability to plan where they want to dine with over 650 restaurants to choose from in the U.S. including dining options in New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Miami.
Travelers can simply search the app by cuisine and then choose a restaurant they fancy. Each restaurant comes with a description and a list of available time slots for reservations. If everything seems good, the traveler can book it and that’s that.
Right now, this new feature is only available for U.S. restaurants, but there’s a good chance this service will expand to other parts of the world. Airbnb is also working on a social dining experience where Airbnb travelers can meet and dine together.
