Airbnb, synonymous with offering access to unique accommodation throughout the world, is eager to make the Formula 1 experience even more memorable for the sport’s legion of fans. Whether it’s a coveted Monaco studio overlooking Rascasse, a log cabin nestled within the pines around Spa, a houseboat in Montreal or an already-assembled luxury tent at Silverstone, Airbnb gives its community choice. Choice at any price point, from one night to a week to a month, in more than 35,000 cities and nearly 200 countries, all from a simple app. The shared love of adventure, technology and challenging the status quo mean Airbnb and Manor Racing have forged a strong bond.
Manor Racing’s motorhome within the Formula 1 Paddock could almost be the most exclusive Airbnb accommodation for a forthcoming Grand Prix. We’ll see! Stay tuned…
Aisling Hassell, Head of CX at Airbnb:
“We don’t go for obvious partnerships; we think carefully about the institutions and teams that chime with our own beliefs. Manor Racing isn’t elitist or stuffy; it’s open, honest and works hard to improve. It seeks to challenge – on and off the track. We like that attitude and we love being part of its Formula 1 adventure. The Manor Racing guys also happen to be rather excellent hosts, which, as you’d expect, is very important to Airbnb!”
Simon Pavitt, Marketing Director at Manor Racing:
“It’s great to announce the extension of our partnership. We think Airbnb represents all that is good in the sharing economy. It’s a pioneer in its field and is opening up the world. At Manor Racing we like a challenge, we love to travel and see new places, experience new things and meet inspiring people. Airbnb, with its myriad abodes gives fans more than a bed for the night; it gives them a sense of adventure. Much of Airbnb’s premise is about breaking down barriers, making the inaccessible accessible. And at Manor Racing we’re inspired by that.”
