The world notably met a young woman used to working for owners of Airbnb housing, notably managing the arrivals and departures of customers, as well as the announcements on the platform. She claims that prices have increased with the COVVI-19 crisis, which forced the French to no longer go abroad, thus increasing demand and reducing supply. It indicates that Airbnb offers a tool to advise a price for rental companies, but that this price is often too low. The employee also indicates that her own fees will also be greater by increasing rental prices.

An owner of an Airbnb housing indicates to the world to have increased its prices for its part by noting a "strong demand". As for the price of cleaning, it would be explained by the difficulty for owners to find cleaning women available. But could inflation change the situation in the face of this increase in prices? Not impossible, the owner finding that there is currently "a little less request". Another owner says he has increased his prices in the face of the rise in electricity prices.

In Chamonix, everything would even have reversed with an average price of € 140 per night at the hotel, against € 210 in Airbnb housing. Faced with price increases, Airbnb has also noted an increase in the research of simple private rooms on the platform, in place of full accommodation.
