Short Term Rental Data from Transparent now available in CARTO

Similar to other tourism-driven industries  the short-term rental market has struggled during the COVID-19 pandemic. March and April  when the virus first hit  saw a wave of cancellations that left some property owners fearing their ability to continue operating. Many switched their units to long-term rentals as a result.

In May  Airbnb announced plans to cut about 1 900 staff  raise $2 billion through the debt sales and undertake a complete reassessment of operations. Airbnb is expected to raise $3 billion during its IPO next month (valuing it at $30 billion) and as the short-term rental market recovers having access to high quality data will be crucial in order to determine where to focus these efforts and resources.

Today we are very pleased to announce our partnership with Transparent  a global leader in providing data intelligencefor the short-term rental industry  and the inclusion of their data in our Data Observatory.
