Jamaica Tourist Board signs Airbnb partnership

The Jamaica Tourist Board and Airbnb have signed a major agreement to promote tourism to the island, highlight the country’s unique history and culture, and position Airbnb for continued growth in this world class tourist destination.

This is Airbnb’s second major partnership agreement in the Caribbean. “Jamaica has so much to offer travellers seeking authentic experiences due to the diversity of our tourism product. “With this partnership with Airbnb, we will be able to offer a renewed focus on community-based tourism which highlights our biggest asset – our people,” said Jamaica Tourist Board director of tourism, Paul Pennicook.

“We foresee a great partnership with Airbnb and look forward to exceeding their client’s expectations in the Home of All Right.” There are 4,000 listings in Jamaica in Airbnb and the average earnings for a host on the island is $2,500 per year. Today’s agreement brings new opportunities to grow the island’s tourism industry and expands economic opportunities for Jamaicans.

“We are excited to announce this partnership with the Jamaica Tourist Board. “Jamaica is a world class tourist destination that offers visitors a unique experience against a beautiful backdrop. “Whether you come to Jamaica for the beaches, the country’s fascinating history and culture, amazing food or warm people, Jamaica has something to offer everyone.

“We look forward to continuing our work with everyone involved in promoting Jamaica as a top travel destination,” said Shawn Sullivan, Airbnb public policy lead for Central America and the Caribbean.

“Airbnb travellers seek unique and authentic travel experiences and Jamaica offers just that.”
