The Liverpool newspaper, “The Liverpool Echo”, brought the news that Airbnb has called for Liverpool inhabitants to rent out their houses, because there is a huge lack of affordable accommodation in the host city of this year’s Eurovision Song Contest, Liverpool.
Airbnb calls for accommodation
The well-known worldwide accommodation rental service, Airbnb, has called out to Liverpool inhabitants to rent out their houses, because the lack of affordable accommodation in Liverpool seems to be huge this year. It has even gone so far that Airbnb hands out £50 travel coupons to any first-time listers in Liverpool during the contest dates.
The General Manager of Airbnb stated the following:
“As guests from across the world head to the City of Music, we want everyone in Liverpool to benefit. By opening their homes, locals can earn some extra cash, showcase the best of authentic local hospitality and help bring communities together to unite them through music.
“Airbnb has made it easier than ever for anyone to become a host and as living costs continue to rise, we know that home sharing is a welcome lifeline for thousands across the UK.”– Quote by the General Manager of Airbnb
Other information that was stated
Airbnb also stated that the average costs of a private room during the week of Eurovision 2023 is about £105, which means that an average resident could expect approximately over £500 for making a spare room available to rent.
The Eurovision Song Contest 2023 will take place on May 9th, 11th, and 13th 2023 in Liverpool, United Kingdom. 37 countries will compete for the crown. This year’s Eurovision Song Contest will be a joint venture, since last year’s winner Ukraine cannot organize the contest on home soil because of the ongoing war with Russia.
