Airbnb launches 80-day round-the-world trip for less than £4,000

Package includes 18 countries on six continents

Airbnb is launching the ultimate round-the-world trip in 80 days, which takes travellers to 18 countries on six continents – and all for less than £4,000.

The package kicks off in September and departs from London, so UK travellers are well-placed to take advantage of the one-off adventure.

With a price tag of £3,930, the trip includes accommodation at each destination, transport between them all and most food and drink.

Participants must pay for their travel to and from London and some meals and incidentals.

Divided by 80, the cost works out at just under £50 a night.

The full list of countries on the jam-packed itinerary is: England, Romania, Uzbekistan, Egypt, Jordan, Ethiopia, Kenya, Nepal, Bhutan, Thailand, China, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, USA, Ecuador, Chile and Iceland.

Part of Airbnb’s new Adventures initiative, which comprises unique and “daring” two- to 10-day trips all over the world, the 80-day itinerary will include different experiences at each location.

The journey starts on 1 September and ends on 19 November 2019.

But those keen to book onto the trip will have to be quick: Airbnb is only releasing two tickets at a time over three separate dates.

The first two spots go on sale tonight (20 June) at 8pm.

The other two opportunities to book are on 26 June from 1.30am and 1 July from 7pm.

It comes after the home sharing network offered Spice Girls fans the chance to sleep over in the original Spice Bus featured in the 1997 movie Spice World.

According to the listing, the bus is identical to how it looked in the film, with its large Union Jack-painted exterior. But it’s the interior which has been revamped and modernised for 2019.

The recently renovated living space downstairs features pink Union Jack cinema-style chairs which sit below a “Girl Power” neon light installation, where guests can sit and listen to a selection of Nineties CDs and read magazines printed during the pop era.
