To get reservation requests from guests who are a good fit for your listing, make sure your listing details and amenities accurately illustrate what you offer and what’s unique about your space. Look at other listings in your area to get inspiration! You can also request free professional photography to make your space look its best.
2. Set a competitive price to attract guests and reach your earnings goals.
In addition to your regular nightly price, you can set a weekend price, a weekly rate, and a monthly rate. You can also set custom prices for specific dates that will be in demand, or difficult to book. You have complete control over how much it costs for guests to stay in your place.
Airbnb’s service fees are 3% of what you charge your guest, which we automatically subtract before you get your payout. Guest fees are charged on a sliding scale from 6% to 12%, on top of the price you charge.
3. Set guidelines for who can book your place.
Confirmation that a guest has verified their contact information or social media profiles can give you more information to make your hosting decisions. You can also set your reservation requirements to only accept requests from guests who have completed the Verified ID process.
4. Once you’re ready to hear from guests, make sure your listing is public.
When you’ve highlighted everything that makes your space fantastic, set your page to Listed to make it public. After about 12 hours, guests will be able to see it when they search.
5. Keep your communication with guests on Airbnb to protect your privacy.
None of your personal contact information will be public on your listing page. Only when you confirm a reservation with a guest will we send them your phone number and listing address. In addition, we’ll create a unique, temporary email address for you to use to communicate with them.
6. Respond to guests quickly.
You’ll receive two main types of communication from guests:
Booking inquiries are questions a traveler has about your hosting style or space. The guest will include their trip dates, but they often aren’t quite ready to make plans.
Reservation requests are just what they sound like—requests to stay at your listing on specific dates from guests who are ready to book.
It’s important to respond to booking inquiries and reservation requests within 24 hours so that guests can make their travel plans. Review how we measure responsiveness, which will impact how visible your listing is when guests search.
7. Use your dashboard to keep track of reservations at your listing.
Your Airbnb dashboard—and the Host Home section of the mobile app—will help you keep track of your reservations. Use the statuses to see which guests need a response, what reservations are confirmed, and which plans have changed.
8. Choose a payout method so you can get paid!
You’ll get paid approximately 24 hours after your guest checks in. Depending…
