All about the Airbnb connection via NextPax
What should I consider when starting to host on Airbnb?
This is all available via our robust content management system, however start with the basics. Make sure all of the details of your property are known to us. Take high quality photos of each area in landscape and high resolution. In terms of organizing the logistics, make sure you provide us with your house rules and provide us with check-in instructions. Once you do all of that, we’ll take care of the rest, and you just have to welcome your guest.
What are Airbnb’s best practices regarding hosting?
In order to optimize your relationship with the Airbnb travellers a couple of things are really important to consider. More than with any channel, Airbnb’s travellers like to communicate with you, so do ensure that your reply is as fast as possible, at least within 24 hours. NextPax Travel Technology makes this a lot easier with our Messaging Engine, where you can reply, auto-reply and read newly incoming messages, before and after the guest’s stay. Also aim to get positive guest reviews by making sure the property cleanliness standards are of high quality, essential amenities are there, accurate listing details are offered and you provide a smooth check-in. But above all, make sure you communicate with your guests, fast and personalized!
