Last Wednesday, July 8, Airbnb says its system took bookings for more than one million nights' worth of future stays at its listings around the world.

That's the first time booking volume has been that high in a single day since March 3.

"At Airbnb, we believe that people's desire to safely connect and be with one another has only grown stronger while we've been apart. Our business has not recovered, but we are seeing encouraging signs," the company said in a statement announcing the data.

The July 8 bookings were made at Airbnb properties in more than 175 different countries and regions, the company said.

About half of the nights booked are for destinations within 300 miles of the guest's location, and two-thirds are for destinations outside cities. 

Airbnb's announcement does not specify the period of time these bookings cover, but the company does say "a significant portion of nights booked" are for trips that will start on or before Aug. 7.

More than 60% of the nights booked are for solo travelers or those traveling with just one other person.
