There are also reviews from previous guests who have stayed at the property. Guests can rate their experience on a scale of 5 stars. Reviews also help immensely while deciding to stay at a place.
Airbnb understands that hosts and guests might have concerns about their respective safety. It is one of their top priorities to ensure so. Hosts have to be able to trust the people who stay at their home and vice versa. Thus, they verify the hosts by asking for a government ID, their phone numbers and email addresses. Likewise, hosts also have the right to ask for a government ID from a guest before they confirm a booking.
Hosts can also have apprehensions about any mishaps at their property. To keep the homes of our hosts, and their belongings safe, Airbnb covers every booking with USD 1 million in property damage protection and another USD 1million in insurance against accidents.
Every property listing also has a list of rules that the guests are expected to strictly adhere to. This ensures a safe and problem-free environment for the hosts as well as the guests. Common rules include check in check out timings, the permission of large gatherings at the premises, and the maximum number of guests allowed on a property.
Payments must only be made via the Airbnb website and offsite payments can lead to fraud. If any host or third party asks for offsite payments, Airbnb must be alerted. Total charges are refunded if the booking is canceled at least 24 hours before the listing’s check-in time. However, charges differ as to when the booking is canceled after that, guests are encouraged to read the cancellation policy in detail before booking.
Airbnb offers 24/7 global support in case either the hosts or the guests have any sort of problem.
