No matter what kind of home or room you have to share, Airbnb makes it simple and secure to host travelers. You’re in full control of your availability, prices, house rules, and how you interact with guests. As an Airbnb host, you are essentially inviting strangers to come into your home. If this aspect of hosting on Airbnb makes you uneasy at all, then this is probably the wrong avenue for you to travel down. However, if you feel you can communicate with strangers effectively and can host them, then it is definitely something to consider.
There are three easy steps to hosting on airbnb:
1. List your space for free
You can advertise your home to millions of travellers with no strings attached – no sign-up charges or membership fees.
Airbnb charges each guest before arrival to ensure you’ll always get paid on time when you host. You never have to handle money directly.
3. Get paid after check-in
Airbnb typically releases your money about 24 hours after the guest is scheduled to arrive to make sure check-in goes smoothly.
