Why host on Airbnb?
No matter what kind of home or room you have to share, Airbnb makes it simple and secure to host travelers. You’re in full control of your availability, prices, house rules, and how you interact with guests.
Airbnb protects hosts
To keep you, your home, and your belongings safe, we cover every booking with $1M USD in property damage protection and another $1M USD in insurance against accidents.
Guests are verified
Airbnb always requires guests to provide certain information before they can make a reservation—such as a confirmed phone number and email address. For added control, you can require guests to also provide recommendations from other hosts and a verified ID.
Hosting in 3 Steps :
- List your space for free – Share any space without sign-up charges, from a shared living room to a second home and everything in-between.
- Decide how you want to host – Choose your own schedule, prices, and requirements for guests. We’re there to help along the way.
- Welcome your first guest – Once your listing is live, qualified guests can reach out. You can message them with any questions before their stay.
How to start hosting:
Host whenever you want
There’s no minimum or mandatory time you have to host, so you can block off dates when you’re not available.
You can also set rules about your availability, including:
• Min/max nights a guest can stay
• How far in the future guests can book
• Advance notice needed before a booking
Set prices you feel good about
You get to choose your nightly prices, and our pricing tools can help you decide. You can also easily add custom details like:
• Cleaning fees
• Weekly discounts
• Special prices for specific times of year

Quickly coordinate calendars
To avoid getting booked when you can’t host or have an existing reservation, you can connect your Airbnb calendar with your other calendars. This allows you to keep all calendars up-to-date automatically.
Establish rules for your space
To help set expectations, you can add House Rules that guests must agree to before booking. If a guest breaks a rule after they book, you can cancel the reservation without penalty.
How Airbnb protects hosts
Fair two-way reviews
To help build trust and reputation on Airbnb, guests and hosts review each other after each reservation is complete.
Before hosting a guest, you can check out their reviews from other hosts.
Easy guest communication
If you want to ask questions or set expectations before a stay, you can get to know guests in advance using our secure messaging tool.
Requirements to book
You can require that every guest provide identification to Airbnb before booking with you. You’ll also have the opportunity to review reservations in advance or add extra controls over who can book. As a further check, every Airbnb reservation is scored for risk and we cancel any bookings that appear suspicious.
Your space, your rules
To help set expectations, you can add House Rules that guests have to agree to before booking, for example restrictions on smoking and events. If a guest breaks one of these rules once they’ve booked, you can cancel the reservation.
