Many business travelers will have more accommodation options now that Airbnb has announced it’s expanding its partnership with the business travel booking service Concur, and in doing so, companies that use the platform to book business travel can now book Airbnb stays through Concur Travel

For companies that opt in, Airbnbs will appear alongside hotels when searching for accommodations in the service’s booking portal. This is a big deal for Airbnb, since Concur customers include 70% of Fortune 100 and 500 companies and employees from over 250,000 businesses have registered to use Airbnb for business travel. The homeshare giant claims that almost 15% of nights booked are for business travel and that in 2016 work bookings increased threefold.

The move could be a boon for Airbnb hosts who could benefit from an increase in business travel. According to Inc., Concur was booking more than 216,000 trips per day in the first quarter of 2017.

It’s another partnership that Airbnb has added to its portfolio — thanks to another relationship, travelers can book Airbnbs through a special Delta portal and receive 1 SkyMile for every dollar spent. That’s on top of the points you can earn from credit card spend, like 3x bonus points you’d receive when paying with a Chase Sapphire Reserve credit card. If you haven’t stayed at an Airbnb yet, you can sign up for an account through TPG and receive $40 in free credit.
