Air BnB is actively promoting listings that meet the requirements in their insights section by scoring amenities.
You can massively improve your ranking by ticking these items.
Allowing pets: If you allow pets on your Airbnb rental, it's important to specify this in your listing and to have clear policies in place regarding the types of pets allowed, the number of pets allowed, and any associated fees. Allowing pets can be a good way to attract a wider range of potential guests, but it's important to be aware of the additional responsibilities and potential risks that come with allowing pets on your property.
Flexible cancellation policy: A flexible cancellation policy allows guests to cancel their bookings and receive a refund, subject to certain conditions. This can be appealing to potential guests and may increase your booking rate, but it's important to carefully consider the implications of offering a flexible cancellation policy for your business.
Free parking: Offering free parking can be a major convenience for Airbnb guests who are driving to their destination and can help increase the appeal of your listing.
Family-friendly: If your Airbnb rental is suitable for families, it's important to highlight this in your listing and to specify any amenities or features that are specifically geared towards families.
Allowing short stays: Allowing short stays, such as one or two nights, can be a good way to increase the flexibility and appeal of your Airbnb rental.
Providing last-minute discounts: Offering last-minute discounts can be a good way to fill vacancies and increase your booking rate, but it's important to carefully consider the implications for your business and to set the right price for your Airbnb rental.
Work-friendly spaces: If your Airbnb rental is suitable for working or remote work, it's important to highlight this in your listing and to specify any amenities or features that are specifically geared towards working guests.
Allow instant booking: Enabling Instant Book allows guests to book their Airbnb rental without waiting for a response from you. This can be convenient for both hosts and guests and can help increase the number of bookings you receive.
Provide discounts: Offering discounts, such as long-term stay discounts or last-minute discounts can be a good way to increase the appeal of your Airbnb rental and encourage bookings.
