Airbnb data reflects strong accommodation demand for upcoming cricket world cup

Recent Airbnb data reveals that there has been a surge in searches for stays in India during the ICC Cricket World Cup tournament days, marking the country as the go to destination for ardent cricket fans from all over the world. Leading the pack are fans from the United Kingdom, followed by supporters from Australia and New Zealand. This fanfare truly establishes the cricket world cup as a global sports marvel.

In the light of the much-awaited match between India and Pakistan on October 14, Airbnb saw an over 4000 percent surge in searches for accommodations in Ahmedabad, the host city, for check-ins on that date. This meteoric rise underscores the unmatched enthusiasm and passion that fans share for the sport.

It's not just about the games, the influx of international travellers offers a significant economic boost to the local hosts. Cricket aficionados don’t just come for the matches, they also immerse themselves in the local culture, cuisines and experiences, bringing valuable economic opportunities to the Airbnb Host community.

Based on searches made on Airbnb in H1 2023 (1 January - 30 June 2023) for check-ins during the tournament period, Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Pune, Lucknow and Kolkata emerged as the hotspots for cricket driven tourism.

Amanpreet Singh Bajaj, Airbnb’s General Manager, India, Southeast Asia, Hong Kong and Taiwan said, “It’s heartening to see that the spirit of cricket, combined with the warmth of Indian hospitality, is resonating with the fans globally. As Hosts from various parts of India open doors to their home, they aren’t just offering a play to stay but an immersive experience, enabling them to truly live the world cup fever.”

“As the cricketing world converges on India, Airbnb remains committed to ensuring that fans from all corners of the globe find a home away from home, fostering connections that transcend the cricket field.”
