Is Airbnb on an acquisition spree?

Late yesterday Airbnb closed on its acquisition of Tilt, a fintech startup for crowdfunding and peer-to-peer payments. Last week, it bought Canadian company Luxury Rentals and its portfolio of high-end properties. 

Those deals, along with Airbnb’s recent foray into travel experiences with the launch of tour service Trips, point to the company’s broadening ambitions. No longer content to offer accommodation alone, Airbnb is evolving into a full-fledged travel platform.
