In the Footsteps of Airbnb, Israelis Venture Into Short-term Rental Market

Israel is among the top 20 countries with the most users on Airbnb; it isn't surprising, then, that Israeli entrepreneurs have decided to set up their own version.

Israelis certainly seem to have taken to the popular short-term apartment rentals website, Airbnb. As of September 2012, Israelis had reserved 90,000 night-stays through the site, with the number of night-stays reserved abroad by Israelis tripling just from the start of 2012.
