What are the requirements to book on Airbnb?
We ask everyone who uses Airbnb for a few pieces of information before they book on Airbnb. Guests need to have this info completely filled out before they can make a reservation request. This info helps make sure hosts know who to expect, and how to contact the guest.
Airbnb’s requirements for guests include:
- Full name
- Email address
- Confirmed phone number
- Introductory message
- Agreement to House Rules
- Payment information
Guests are encouraged, but not required, to have a profile photo. Hosts won’t receive guest’s real email addresses, even after they book. Instead, hosts will receive a temporary Airbnb email address that forwards their messages to the guest.
Some hosts may also ask guests to provide ID before booking their space.
