Airbnb makes huge change following common gripe

Airbnb makes huge change following common gripe

In a major victory for visitors, Airbnb has made a significant improvement to its checkout process. To avoid any unpleasant surprises after you’ve made a reservation, the new “transparent checkout instructions” feature reveals your host’s cleaning needs before you make a reservation. Since, let’s face it, nothing could be less romantic than arriving at your Airbnb and being instructed to clean the bathroom.

All check-out instructions will now be provided right away on a listing’s website, according to Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky. Chesky wrote, “You said checkout instructions could be a surprise when you get to your Airbnb.” “Now, before you book, you can view all checkout instructions on the listing page.”

Guests have long complained that rogue hosts make too many requests for chores, including everything from scrubbed floors to groomed lawns.

  • For $300, you can stay in a “Shameless” Airbnb apartment and sleep on the floor.
  • Warning from woman following ‘terrifying’ discovery in Airbnb toilet
  • Airbnb owner justifies charging $26 per night to use his restroom.

Users may rate checkout duties as well, and if the host receives enough unfavourable reviews, their listing will be taken down.

“Checking out of Airbnbs can be a pain due to unreasonable checkout tasks,” Chesky said. Starting today, you may comment on any checkout chores that are part of the review flow, and we’ll delete any listings that have a history of receiving poor checkout ratings.

In an effort to reinvent its service and revive the business, Airbnb is launching 50 new features and enhancements, including the new policy. Other adjustments include a renewed emphasis on room rentals, making longer stays more affordable and available, and aggressive customer service standards including two-minute English-speaking customer response times.

According to Airbnb, the number of nights stayed in private room listings in Australia increased by over 50% last year as a result of tourists searching for more reasonably priced lodging alternatives. On Airbnb, a private room costs, on average, $104 a night in Australia.
