Guest identity verification
Our comprehensive verification system checks details such as name, address, government ID, and more to confirm the identity of guests who book on Airbnb.
Our proprietary technology analyzes hundreds of factors in each reservation and blocks certain bookings that show a high risk for disruptive parties and property damage.
$3M damage protection
Airbnb reimburses you for damage caused by guests to your home and belongings, and includes these specialized protections:
Art & valuables
Airbnb will restore, replace or pay you for damaged art or valuables.
Auto & boat
We protect the cars, boats, and other watercraft that you park or store at your home.
We will pay to repair damage done by a guest’s pet.
If you have to cancel Airbnb bookings due to guest damage, you’ll be compensated for the lost income.
We will reimburse you for extra cleaning services needed after a guest’s stay—for example, professional carpet cleaning.
$1M liability insurance
You’re protected in the rare event that a guest gets hurt or their belongings are damaged or stolen.
24-hour safety line
If you ever feel unsafe, our app provides one-tap access to specially-trained safety agents, day or night.

More kinds of one-of-a-kind
Today we’re introducing six new categories
and improving personalization.
Great finds added to Airbnb within the past 10 weeks.
Top of the world
Homes around 10,000 feet above sea level, often with stunning views.
Highly-rated homes getting lots of attention on Airbnb.
Verified for step-free paths into the home, bathroom, and bedroom.
Places with game rooms,
water slides, and more.
Traditional Korean homes made
from natural materials.
We’re making the categories we show you even more relevant—for instance, if you browsed homes in Napa we’ll show you Vineyards first the next time you open the app.
You’ll also find more details about each home as you browse. For example, homes in the National Parks Category will show the distance to the park entrance.
