Not mentioned also in this survey is the fact that business travellers want to be sure of a private bathroom and need to know the bed configuration. As an Airbnb host I know there is nowhere I can highlight that the room I rent out has an ensuite bathroom and a queensized bed- only that it has a "real"bed as opposed to a sofabed or pull out couch! For all the traveller knows he/she may also be sharing the bathroom with another 5 people.
Not mentioned in the survey is the fact that for business travelers, there is no price advantage in using Airbnb. The main attraction for many leisure travelers is that Airbnb hosts pay no VAT which in the UK gives them a 20% unfair advantage over hoteliers. Since business travelers can recover their VAT, there is no temptation to take the safety and quality risk involved in booking an Airbnb property.
