This fall, travelers are continuing to prioritize safer travel by staying closer to home. Nearby stays within 300 miles from home remain the most popular with guests, according to Airbnb, a San Francisco-based vacation rental company.
Not everyone, though, is looking for just a weekend escape. With more people working remotely, the consideration of longer-term stays is extending into the fall season, with an emphasis on amenities.
What is the most important amenity for guests? That their four-legged friends are welcome. U.S. travelers are bringing their furry companions along for the ride, with “allows pets” the most searched for amenity over the holiday, and continuing to rank highly heading into the fall.
Top searched amenities for Labor Day Weekend:
