How To Book At Airbnb?
- Go to www.Airbnb.com and create and complete your profile
Airbnb is a community that relies on trust. One can only request a reservation after completing your profile that includes photos and verification, especially because some hosts require guests to have a profile photo or Verified ID in order to book. If you haven’t created your account yet, create one using my code to get 950PhP off your first Airbnb booking: www.airbnb.com/c/lmirasol.
- Look for the right place
Search for listing by entering your travel destination, arrival and departure dates and number of guests to get the most accurate pricing. Read reviews, descriptions, house rules, and amenities for each place to see if it’s the right fit for your trip. You can always contact the host if you have any questions about their home.
- Request reservation or click Instant Book
Once you’ve found the perfect place, and now it’s time to make it official. This is where the host’s preferred way of booking will determine how you’ll confirm your reservation. Many hosts prefer to approve reservations before they’re final. In this case, you’ll see a button on their listing that says Request to Book. To submit a reservation request, you’ll need to enter your payment details. Hosts have 24 hours to accept your request, and your reservation is automatically confirmed once they do. Learn more about submitting a reservation request. For hosts who don’t want to approve each reservation, you’ll see a button on their listing that says Instant Book. Like the name suggests, you can confirm a reservation at these places right away. Learn more about Instant Book.
- Enter payment details and promo code. Click Book Now.
If you decide to contact the host to ask questions before attempting to book, the host may respond to your message by inviting you to make a reservation with either a pre-approval or Special Offer. A pre-approval is an invitation to finish booking for the dates and number of guests you noted in your message. A Special Offer gives the host the opportunity to provide special pricing, dates, and other reservation details before you book. Learn more about booking a pre-approval or Special Offer. You’ll receive confirmation via email with your trip itinerary, and billing details as well.
