Deutsche Telekom has announced a pan-European partnership with rental accommodation company Airbnb.

Customers in all of DT’s 13 European markets who register with Airbnb through the operator will receive a voucher worth €30.

The deal starts this Spring when the Airbnb app comes preinstalled on Android devices.

Airbnb, which has disrupted the hotel industry since launching in San Francisco seven years ago, offers users the chance to rent rooms and properties in over 190 countries.

The company said the partnership with the Germany-based operator would allow it to focus more on mobile devices and address new users across Europe.

In common with its peers, DT is signing deals with digital companies like Airbnb as it looks to leverage their brands to keep subscribers on side.

DT announced last month that it has renewed its partnership with Evernote for another two years.

Yesterday, MTV announced a number of operator partnerships for its new apps, including DT’s Romanian subsidiary.

Niek-Jan van Damme, a DT Board Member responsible for innovation, commented: "Airbnb is a pioneer and trailblazer in the sharing economy. The concept perfectly reflects our brand promise, 'Life is for sharing'.

“Through our partnership, we can give our customers a great benefit with the 30-euro voucher."

DT is set to unveil its full-year results tomorrow.​
