Frequently asked questions

Who can be an Airbnb host?
It’s easy to become an Airbnb host in most areas, and it’s always free to create a listing. Entire apartments and homes, private rooms, treehouses, and castles are just a few of the properties hosts have shared on Airbnb.

For more details on what’s expected of hosts, check out Airbnb’s community standards, which revolve around safety, security, and reliability, and hospitality standards, which help hosts earn great guest reviews.
How do I choose my listing’s price?
You're always in control of your rates. You can search for comparable listings in your city or neighborhood to get a sense for pricing. You can set nightly, weekly, and/or monthly rates. We also have a Smart Pricing tool to help you choose your rate.
How do I create a listing on Airbnb?
You can create a listing in the Host section of your profile. After you publish your listing, it may take up to 6 hours for it to appear in search results.
Does Airbnb provide insurance for hosts?
Accidents rarely occur on Airbnb. However, we're here to help if anything happens. Our Host Guarantee covers up to $1,000,000 in property damage and our Host Protection Insurance provides liability protection for up to $1,000,000 for every listing. You can also contact our global support team by phone, email, or live chat.
How do I talk to my landlord about hosting on Airbnb?
Renting your property as a tenant is possible on Airbnb. You’ll need to get permission from your landlord. Let your landlord know that Airbnb is a trusted platform where guests get rated by hosts, and in the rare case of property damage, Airbnb’s Host Guarantee provides protection of up to $1,000,000 in property damage for every booking, every time—at no additional cost.
Can I require guests to be verified before booking?
You can require that every guest provide identification to Airbnb before booking your place. You’ll also have the opportunity to review reservations in advance, or add extra controls over who can book.
As a further check, every Airbnb reservation is scored for risk and we cancel any bookings that appear suspicious.
