How do referrals and travel credits work?
Inviting people to Airbnb can earn you—and your invitees—travel credit to use toward a new reservation. Users can earn up to $5,000 USD Travel Credit. Visit https://www.airbnb.com/invite to get started. For both of you to earn credit, your invitees will need to create a new Airbnb account by clicking the link you send them.
When your friend completes their first qualifying reservation, you'll earn travel credit to use for your own Airbnb travels. You'll receive your travel credit after the departure date of your friend's trip.
A qualifying reservation typically has a total value of $75 USD or more, excluding guest fees and any taxes. These amounts may vary during promotional periods.
For each person you refer, there are two opportunities to earn travel credit - first, when your friend completes a qualifying reservation as a guest, and second, when they complete a qualifying reservation as a host!
Your available travel credits automatically appear as a coupon on the checkout page of your reservation request. If the travel credits aren't automatically added, it means the reservation does not qualify.
Keep in mind that travel credits can't apply to a trip that has already been paid for, but they will be available and applied to your next qualifying reservation. Travel credits expire one year from the date they're issued and can only be used once. Travel credits are also not reusable if you cancel a reservation where the credits were applied.
People you refer will see their travel credit automatically appear as a coupon on the checkout page when they book a qualifying reservation on Airbnb.
