Airbnb Edges Expedia Brand in Online Travel’s Top TV Ad Spenders so Far in 2021

by DailyBriefers

Having pledged to reduce its reliance on Google Search advertising, Airbnb has been the largest online travel company spender in U.S. national television advertising so far in 2021 with an estimated $29.4 million allocated.

In so doing, Airbnb edged out the Expedia brand, which spent about $6 million less at $23.1 million, according to year-to-date statistics through June 3 from TV analytics firm See the chart below for more data.

Estimated U.S. TV Ad Spend January 1-June 3, 2021

Brand Spend Percentage
Airbnb $29.4 million 30.40%
Expedia $23.1 million 23.90%
Priceline $11.4 million 11.40% $9.7 million 10.10%
Vrbo $9.5 million 9.80%
Other $13.5 million 14%


Both Airbnb and the Expedia brand — as opposed to the Expedia Group family of brands — announced that they were mounting their largest advertising campaigns in at least five years. Airbnb’s ad blitz kicked off in late February and Expedia’s a little more than a month ago.

But of the five largest online travel TV advertisers in the U.S. so far in 2021, Expedia Group had three entries, Expedia ($23.1 million), ($9.7 million) and Airbnb rival Vrbo ($9.5 million), for a total of $42.3 million. That’s way higher collectively than Airbnb’s $29.4 million in estimated U.S. TV spend., which claims to be making a substantial push into the U.S., particularly for short-term rentals, wasn’t among the five top brands in U.S. TV spending in 2021. However, sister company Priceline ($11.4 million) was third.

U.S. TV advertising spend is only a snapshot of these companies’ marketing strategies — it’s obviously not global in scope, and doesn’t include things such as online video, and search engine marketing.

These were the top three TV commercials in terms of spend:
