What methods of payments do you accept?

We support several payment methods and currencies depending on the country in which your payment account is located. Options differ when you’re on your mobile phone. Options may include: 

• Major credit cards and pre-paid credit cards: Visa, MasterCard, AMEX, Discover, and JCB
• PayPal
• Google Wallet (on our Android App for the US only)
• Many debit cards that can be processed as credit

Offline cash payments are a violation of our terms of use and can result in removal from the site.

To see what methods are available to you, click Book It*. Select a country and a payment method—the currency in which you will be charged is listed before you book.

Example from the desktop version of Airbnb:

*Clicking the Book It button does not submit a reservation request. It simply directs you to an initial checkout page where you can review the reservation details. If you do not wish to proceed with a booking, either click your browser's back button or close the browser window. Learn more about how and when you pay for your reservation.
