Explair is an extensive app to Airbnb that immerses users in visual stories of real-life traveller experiences as a fun way to connect and inform users about different experiences that await them around the world. It provides a platform for users to easily discover and collaborate on trips to create unforgettable memories. Since this app was created for the Adobe x Airbnb Creative Jam, it was made in 48 hours with love!
Airbnb has a huge community of like-minded people that love to travel and share their trip memories. However, Airbnb as of now is used for advertising listings and booking stays and/or unique experiences for already planned-out trips. Currently, there lacks inspiration to encourage new trips and users cannot share their amazing travel experiences within the Airbnb community. By solving these pain points would ultimately inspirit users to want to come back to Airbnb and boost customer metrics.
Our goal with Explair is to create an app that is connected to and works in collaboration with Airbnb that will allow users to document travel experiences in real-time, save posts for inspiration on future trips, and collaborate with friends and family to cherish memories. Explair is meant to open up the minds of travellers to where they can go rather than only using Airbnb to book a stay somewhere they’ve already planned to go.
