Airbnb is no longer just about helping users find places to stay during travels, but about curating the whole travel experience. The Saved feature allows users to invite their friends to the boards to find places that they are interested in exploring; from the Saved feature, users can add saved places to their plans, which leads to the Trips feature.
However, while these features complement each other and aim towards providing a more collaborative experience, they feel a bit disjointed.
Even though I’ve already created a Saved board with a group, when I add a saved place to my plan, I would have to add my friends again to the separate trip itinerary in the Trips feature. Also, since we couldn’t actively interact and communicate on the platform, it was difficult to plan out a trip together.
