If you’re looking for an easy and quick way to send money to Ukraine, Airbnb is a great choice! As more and more people are looking for ways to help out the people of Ukraine, booking an Airbnb stay is becoming a popular option. Below in this article, we will walk you through the process of sending money to Ukraine using Airbnb.
In 48 hours, 61,406 nights have been booked in Ukraine. That’s $1.9M going to hosts in need! It’s a clever ruse to get people to send money to Ukrainian. The hashtag #airbnbukraine has been trending on Twitter as part of the effort. Furthermore, Airbnb has indicated that they’re waiving costs in Ukraine, ensuring that 100% of the funds go to Ukrainians in need. “We can confirm we are waiving all guest and Host fees on all bookings in Ukraine at this time” the business said in a tweet on March 3.
By waiving the fees, guests will pay less than the usual price of renting an Airbnb in Ukraine. This also implies that Ukraine-based hosts will get the whole revenues of these transactions, without Airbnb taking a share.
Screenshots of interactions between Airbnb guests and thankful hosts have been shared on Twitter in many publications. Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky has commended the efforts as well.
