How to be an Airbnb host
Sign up to become an Airbnb host
Start by creating your listing. It’s like a profile page for your place.
You’ll fill out a description, take and upload photos, and pick a price. Your listing helps guests get a sense of what your place is like.
You set the availability and house rules for your listing. Host controls and calendar settings can help make hosting easier.
From getting your home ready and choosing a price, to understanding your responsibilities under local laws — we’ve got tools and resources for you.
Guests find your Airbnb listing and make a reservation
You’ll get a reservation confirmation and a message from your guest.
Welcome your guests
Some hosts offer breakfast, others are more hands-off. How you host is up to you.
Most hosts clean all the spaces a guest can use, and provide essentials like clean sheets, towels, and toilet paper.
Airbnb handles all of the payments—you never have to deal directly with money. Guests get charged before they arrive.
Some of the ways you can choose to get paid include Paypal, direct deposit, and international money wire. Your payment is automatically sent 24 hours after your guest checks in. Easy.
We’ve got your back
Airbnb plans ahead to protect you and your home.
The Host Guarantee protects your home and your stuff from accidental damage. Every host with a listing on Airbnb is eligible for coverage at no additional cost. You don’t have to do anything to sign up.
Host Protection Insurance is designed to protect you from liability in case your guests get hurt or cause property damage. It’s automatically included as part of your Airbnb account.
We require verified information from both hosts and guests, including phone numbers. After a trip, everyone gets a chance to write a review. Reviews keep guests accountable for treating hosts and their homes with respect.
So much more than money
Besides the extra income, hosts join a supportive worldwide community. There are always opportunities to learn from Airbnb and other hosts.
