Due to lockdown, many of us have been eager to find some fun, which has been hard to come by whilst confined to our bedroom walls.
After analysing recent google trends, ShowersToYou discovered that there has been a 1,150% increase in ‘Airbnb online experiences’ as Brits are searching for exciting activities to keep them occupied! Along with this, they conducted a poll that found 82% of us would consider purchasing an online experience for under £50.
