Finding a stay that's right for you

Want help finding a great place to stay? Here are the top areas that guests have questions about when they’re searching for their next trip.

Booking 101: The basics

As long as you enter your destination, travel dates, and number of guests when searching on Airbnb, all listings that show up should be available. To make sure the space is just right, use the search filters to find a place entirely to yourself, or other options if you’d prefer some shared spaces. Once you find a place you like, you may still have questions about it. While you can’t visit the property before booking, you can contact the Host to find out more. Also ask them about specific amenities, the neighborhood, or the location since they are the best source for all details. They may even send you a pre-approval or special offer to entice you to book their place.
