Is Airbnb legal?
Laws around holiday rentals are different depending on your location - and some apartment buildings do not allow tenants to rent out their units.
In Australia, Airbnbs are currently legal. However, there are frequent government debates around the topic.
Airbnb properties can sometimes be listed in locations where stays aren't legal - or are limited to a set number of nights per month or year - so it's best to check the local rules before making your booking.
How do Airbnb payments work? Do I need to pay for my stay when I make the booking?
If you make a reservation on an instant book property, you're charged at the time of booking. If you make a request to book a property, you'll be charged once the host accepts your stay.
Airbnb holds the payment until 24 hours prior to the stay, and then releases the funds to the host.
The site has also recently introduced the option to pay for your stay in split payments, where you can pay for half your stay upfront and the rest at a later date.
What forms of payment does Airbnb accept?
- PayPal (Select countries)
- Google Wallet (Android app only)
- Apple Pay (iOS app only)
Do Airbnb bookings include breakfast?
Despite the hint toward a "bed and breakfast" experience, Airbnbs usually don't include breakfast. Some hosts do offer to leave basic breakfast items or serve breakfast, however the majority of hosts do not.
Do I need to clean my Airbnb?
Airbnb stays usually include a cleaning fee, which generally covers regular maintenance and the washing of linens. General tidying is expected though, especially if your Airbnb has a kitchen that you've used. Most hosts will expect any used dishes to be cleaned.
Does Airbnb have a loyalty program?
Not yet, but if you're a Qantas Frequent Flyer member you can earn points with your stay at a rate of 1 point per $1 spent.
How do I cancel my booking with Airbnb?
Airbnb allows hosts to select their own cancellation, change, and refund policies based on the Airbnb guidelines. Hosts can choose ‘strict’, ‘moderate’, and ‘flexible’ and Airbnb will stand by this selection should a need for a cancellation arise. This is except in the case of an extenuating circumstance.
