Airbnb constantly works on making the experience a better and better one for guests and hosts alike. One of their newest additions is honing in on the Business Travel sector. They have come up with some clever requirements so that your home will show in this section of their site. Today we will enlighten you why this is good for you and what we can do to help you get your property shown in this Airbnb category.
Firstly lets talk about why Airbnb created a new section at all?
Airbnb probably did this because they wanted to tap into a sector that they previously underutilized. They probably also recognized that this form of travel makes up a substantial portion of all trips taken in general and wanted to have a piece of that pie.
And trust us, if Airbnb thinks it’s a good move to focus on a special travel group it is.
Add to that that Sydney has a huge number of business travelers arriving each and every day and you really could not ask for a better addition to the Airbnb Services.
What are the advantages of business travelers vs your regular holidaymaker?
Business Travellers are often well traveled and do so regularly. They will have fewer questions and anxieties and know what they want and what they can expect in return for their money.
Many of them will also return on a regular basis and if they like your property they could book it over and over. They also stay longer on average and sometimes even book your property for extended periods of time.
The other advantage of business travelers is that they usually travel by themselves and are out most of the day. So you know your property is not getting much wear and the number of people is limited. Even if a large number of people from a company travel together for a conference or training they are usually very respectful groups.
What does your property need to be listed in the Airbnb Business Section?
Your listing needs to have very good overall reviews with a special focus on cleanliness and accuracy reviews.
You need to respond to your booking requests in general within 24 hours.
You cannot cancel reservations within 7 days of the travel date and in general cancelation, rates need to be kept low.
Your property will only ever show in this section if you offer the entire home.
You will need to have business amenities for your guests. This includes wifi, a laptop friendly space, essentials, an iron, cloth hangers, hairdryer and safety features such as smoke and CO detectors.
And most important you have to provide self check-in amenities so that the Business Traveller can check in without delay 24/7.
Why do we think getting your Airbnb listing ready for Business Travellers is a wise choice?
People travel for work all year around and so can really help with occupancy rates of your property during the lower seasons. They also more often than not book accommodation midweek which can give your overall income a substantial boost.
Getting and keeping your property listed under the new Airbnb business section is no easy task and takes precise and constant supervision of your property and all aspects related to it.
