Frequently asked questions

How much do I earn for referring a new host?
If you’re based in the United States, you’ll earn $300 USD for each new referred host that creates a new listing and receives a qualifying reservation on that listing. A qualifying reservation is a first-time reservation over $100 USD. If you’re based outside of the US, you’ll receive the equivalent in your local currency (i.e., the currency of the payment method that you’ve selected for payouts).
Does the referred host have to be a new Airbnb user?
The referred host has to be someone who has never listed or hosted on Airbnb before, but it’s okay if they have taken a trip on Airbnb as a guest.
What if the host I refer re-activates a listing?
Our goal with this program is to drive new hosts to Airbnb. If a host re-activates a listing that already exists, it won’t count as a new host referral, and will therefore not be rewarded.
What if a current host uses my link to create a new listing?
To qualify for the referral bonus, the referred host must be a new host that has never listed on Airbnb before. A current host that creates a new listing wouldn’t qualify.
Who can join the Pro Referral Program?
The Pro Referrer program is available to Airbnb users who are in good standing on the platform and who have completed the Verified ID process through Airbnb. Pro Referrers must also agree to certain brand guidelines to join the program.
What benefits does the referred host have when using my referral link?
The referred host doesn’t receive any benefit from using your link. The host benefits from the revenue they generate through hosting.
How will I be paid?
Pro referral payments will be made via direct transfer to your bank account. You must add your bank account details to your Airbnb account to receive payments.
When will I be paid?
A payout for a referral reward is triggered 14-days after guest check-out on the qualifying reservation. For example, if you refer a listing that completes (guest checks out) a qualified reservation ($100 USD or more) on January 10th, the payment will be sent on January 24th.
Does this promotion apply to referring new travelers or Experience hosts?
This referral bonus is only for new hosts who list homes. While we recognize the value of driving new guests and experiences, the Pro Referrers program is designed to bring new homes to the Airbnb platform.
The nightly price of a listing in my city can be below $100. Will I still get paid for new listings?
Even though the price per night might be less than $100, most booked trips are more than one night so it’s reasonable to meet the minimum reservation value. You’ll only receive the payment after the first qualifying reservation that is over $100.
