With COVID-19 cases surging since mid-October and states around the US declaring new restrictions, many Americans are wondering how to make this year’s holiday season special as we face growing pressure to stay home. To help us get through the uniquely difficult times of this holiday season, Airbnb is spreading a little cheer by offering $25 off any Online Experience hosted this Tuesday, December 1.

Airbnb began offering Online Experiences in early April of this year, expanding the Experiences platform that it launched in 2016 in response to social distancing guidelines and their economic impact on hosts of in-person Experiences.

From the Online Experience “Hidden History with Drag Queens and Kings”

Many Online Experiences are priced at or below $25 per person, so this offer allows anyone with Internet access, regardless of socioeconomic status, the chance to try something new. And with Airbnb’s Social Impact Experiences initiative, guests can give back to communities they care about, booking virtual sessions where 100% of the proceeds go to a non-profit organization.

For example, book the Online Experience “Hidden History with Drag Queens and Kings” to learn about London’s queer history. Priced at only $25 per person, the coupon makes this fun 75-minute activity free, and as a Social Impact Experience, the booking fee goes toward the IGLTA Foundation, which promotes equality and safety in global LGBTQ+ tourism and develops the leadership of emerging LGBTQ+ owned travel businesses.

There are over 400 Online Experiences that offer Tuesday, December-1 time slots, so if you’re intrigued by the offer, there will definitely be an Online Experience for you! Use the code HOLIDAYS2020 at checkout to redeem your $25-off coupon.
