Whether you are a new or a seasoned Airbnb host, it’s always good to look at your check-in and check-out policies, and above all, make sure guests are clear about any and all instructions. Some guests are seasoned travelers who ‘get it’ and follow instructions, but others may need more clarity and a step-by-step to follow.
So, what do you need to know to be a successful host, but mostly, to avoid any headaches for you and your guests? Here are some quick and easy tips to always keep in mind:
Decide how your check out policy: What do you want Guests to handle on their own? Should you ask them to put bedding in the laundry and leave dishes in the dish washer? How do you want the house to look for the cleaning crew that coming in before the next Guests come in? Think about all those details when crafting the instruction manual for Guests.
Use the samples provided by Airbnb: Their website has all the resources you need as an experienced or new Host. Airbnb’s check out instructions have what you need to know, including tips on how to make check out better. One easy tip: create an illustrated check out guide for your guests. Be creative! Graphics and simple words go a long way, particularly for people who speak other languages than English.
Communicate your expectations: From laundry instructions and tips to times for check in or check out, Guests need to know your cleaning expectations from them. Airbnb users know they also have a responsability to Hosts, and they are willing to do their due diligence. Decide which of these elements you want to include in your house manual, from check in instructions to check out policies or what you want them to do with dirty dishes or the laundry. For example, give Guests laundry tips if you want them to start a wash before they leave.
