What's a co-host?

Co-hosts help listing owners take care of their home and guests.

A co-host is someone the listing owner already knows. They are usually a family member, neighbor, trusted friend, or someone the host has hired to help with the listing.

Hosts and co-hosts agree on who's responsible for what, how much of the reservation income will go to the co-host, and how the co-host will be reimbursed for expenses.

If you're interested in becoming a co-host and you know someone who already hosts on Airbnb, you can suggest they add you as a co-host. Or, for people who aren’t hosting yet but are interested in doing so, you can help them list their space and add you as a co-host.
