Airbnb Animal Experiences – £9 Promo Code

airbnb animal experiences booking

We covered the initial launch of Airbnb Experiences around a year ago. These experiences can be paired with Airbnb accommodation or booked as separate bookings. The one-of-a-kind activities are designed and hosted by locals and are unlike a typical tour or workshop – experiences go beyond the activities themselves. They offer a deep-dive into the local host’s world through their passion. Hosts offer their guests special knowledge, unique skills, and inside access to local places and communities that guests couldn’t find on their own, creating lasting connections and treasured memories. Airbnb Animal Experiences home in to booking an experience with a animal.

You could take one of these unique experiences of choose from thousands of others.

  • Have afternoon tea with naughty sheep in Sterling, Scotland
  • Watch arctic foxes in Iceland
  • Paddleboard with corgis in Miami, America
  • Be amazed by a skateboarding bulldog in Lima, Peru
  • Help rescue puppies lost within the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone, Ukraine

New customers who book an Airbnb Animal Experience receive £9 off their first booking. Register on Airbnb to receive £9 off your first booking of £36 or more (potentially saving 25% off an Airbnb Experience).

The Difference With Airbnb Animal Experiences

Airbnb says their “experiences tell the story of the host’s unique perspective and passion, whether it’s their love of street food, sewing, or the history of their neighborhood. Guests receive insider knowledge from their hosts and have behind-the-scenes access to people, places, and activities that guests couldn’t typically find on their own. The experience has personal meaning to the guest and conveys a unique point of view. Experiences tell the host’s story and immerse guests in their world. Guests can engage in the activities of the experience, not just passively observe them. Hosts provide opportunities for guests to meaningfully interact together as a group”.

Since the launch of Airbnb Experiences last year there are already of 40,000 experiences available on the platform, across 1,000 cities worldwide, and now with over 300 species. Over 100 of these new Airbnb Animal Experiences are said to direct all proceeds from bookings to nonprofits.

Airbnb Animal Welfare & Protection

Airbnb are the first major booking platform to offer a dedicated category of animal experiences. Working with animals could be risky business and cause bad press for the brand if they allow booking of experiences where animals are treated unfairly. That’s probably one of the reason why they are working with World Animal Protection on the following guidelines:

  • For wild animals there should be no direct contact including, but not limited to, petting, feeding, or riding animals
  • For working animals there should be a maximum one rider and never more than 20% of the animal’s weight, never to be overworked
  • For marine mammals they should should never be in captivity for entertainment

World Animal Protection works to give animals a better life. The organisation’s activities include working with companies to ensure high standards of welfare for the animals in their care; working with governments and other stakeholders to prevent wild animals being cruelly traded, trapped or killed; and saving the lives of animals and the livelihoods of the people who depend on them in disaster situations.
