Many Americans have returned to travel in some measure as the pandemic continues, though the methods they’re selecting may be different than in the past.
Home-sharing platforms such as Airbnb have reported an uptick in booking private vacation home rentals when compared to this time last year.
The trend is largely due to the fact that private homes can be safer than hotels given the absence of encounters with other people, which eliminates the virus’s primary mode of transmission. Indeed, infectious disease experts agree it’s the safer choice.
