Find a local hosting team

Now you can provide high-quality hospitality and earn money with help from a hosting team.

For a fee – generally around 20% per booking – hosting teams will manage everything from setup and booking to checkout and cleaning.

How to get started

Get connected

Tell us a little about your needs and we’ll see if we can match you with a hosting team in your area. Then your local team will get in touch to gather info about your space, determine the right plan for you, and go over pricing.

Let a specialist do the work

Your dedicated hosting team will usually take care of everything – from creating your listing to communicating with guests and ensuring that your place is cleaned between rentals.

Start earning money

With the hosting logistics taken care of, all that’s left is to collect the earnings from your space. Talk to your hosting team about easy payout options.

Complete peace of mind

Stay in control

Whether you’re a few doors down or a continent away, using a hosting team can help you stay informed and list your space confidently. Your hosting team will usually be on call to provide you with information, updates, and assistance when you need it.

$1,000,000 property damage protection

Airbnb’s Host Guarantee provides free protection of up to $1,000,000 USD in property damage for every booking, every time. Plus, your hosting team can usually help you handle any claims that need to be filed.

Your questions answered

Who will my hosting team be?

You’ll be matched with a provider in your area that specialises in hosting services. This may be a separate business or a company within the Airbnb family. Airbnb doesn't receive any compensation if you choose to do business with a hosting team and is not responsible for the services provided.

Am I covered if something goes wrong?

Whenever a guest makes a reservation and stays at your place, you’re automatically covered by our Host Guarantee, which provides property damage coverage of up to $1,000,000 USD. If a claim needs to be filed, your hosting team can usually help you take care of it.

Am I eligible for hosting services?

At the moment, you're eligible to use hosting services if you have an entire home that you’d like to list and your listing is located in one of the cities where Airbnb has partnered with a hosting team.

What do I do with my personal belongings?

You don’t need to empty out your space in order to host. Airbnb lets travellers know that they are staying in someone’s home. You may want to store valuables in a secure place, such as a locked room, cupboard, safe or storage facility. Ask your hosting team to help you figure out the best solution for your belongings.

I run a hosting team. Can I offer hosting services through Airbnb?

Finding new and better ways to help our host community is a top priority, and we have partnered with a handful of hosting teams to learn more about how we can make hosting easier. As this is currently a closed pilot, we are not accepting applications for hosting teams.
