Airbnb is moving forward with plans to launch new travel services, such as restaurant reservations and city tours. The move would turn Airbnb from a home-rental service to an all-encompassing travel concierge.
Airbnb is testing this project, nicknamed Trips, via a separate mobile app. According to people familiar with the matter, it’s a high-priority initiative within the company.
Currently valued at $30 billion, Airbnb is expected to officially debut Trips in November during the company’s annual conference.
