How is my acceptance rate calculated?
Your acceptance rate is the combined percentage of reservation requests you've accepted and booking inquiries you've pre-approved over the past year.
For example, say in the past year you’ve received 5 unique reservation requests and 10 booking inquiries. If you accept 3 of the reservation requests, send 5 pre-approvals, and send 2 Special Offers, here’s how we’d calculate your acceptance rate:
(3 accepted requests + 5 pre-approvals + 2 Special Offers) / 15 requests and inquiries
Your acceptance rate would be 67%.
As a host, you don’t need to maintain 100% acceptance rate; if your acceptance rate is above 75%, you’ll be among the top hosts for this metric.Accepting more reservations and raising your acceptance rate can improve your listing's search placement. Learn more about search results
