The improved presentation made possible by Aviva IQ and its eventual competitors should improve guests’ experiences and will have a positive impact on hosts’ revenue and ratings. The spread of services such as this will help cement sharing-economy sites as part of our world, though a more professional look could also draw renewed questions about short-term lodging sharing.


  • Aviva IQ, or something like it, may be the tipping point that turns Airbnb from a popular niche service into the Uber of vacation lodgings. The phrase “or something like it” should not be ignored here. It is often the second entrant into a market that reaps the better results, learning from its predecessor’s mistakes or missed opportunities.
