More Wyoming Airbnb users, combined with new tax deal, lead to revenue boost for state

January 11, 2018View for printing

More Wyomingites than ever appear to be using online platforms to rent their homes to travelers looking for somewhere to stay other than a hotel.

Airbnb, the largest online hospitality company, experienced 132 percent year-over-year growth in Wyoming last year, with 56,000 guests using the website to find homes to rent during the first year that the company turned tax revenue over to the state.

That growth was greater than some neighboring states including Montana, where guest arrivals were up 91 percent in 2017 compared to the year prior, according to the company.
