I am a host and my Airbnb page is obviously set up as a host. I want to try using it as a traveler/guest. How do I switch??? And seriously, shouldn't that be the simplest frigging thing in the world, why the heck would the programmers fail to make this obvious??!?!?! I don't get it.
there's nothing to switch, your Airbnb profile is automatically both. You can switch from hosting to travelling on the app if that's what you're looking for or maybe i'm not getting what you're having a problem with..
No, there is a function. At one point I selected "switch to traveler" and was no longer able to see my messages that had to do with hosting, not sure if it was a webpage error or that change that I made then; that's why I came into this forum, to switch it back to hosting. The app seems to be working fine but the webpage sure is acting up. I didn't mean to give a thumbs up here but cant' remove it. They're focusing too much on the app and neglecting the pc/laptop page.
But it's not the simplest the thing! If you're used to using the app this makes no sense.
But thanks again, you saved me a lot of time and frustration.
Hi Cynthia and Chris, we are contacting you be a use I noticed you are brilliant super hosts and helpful to other people, we need your help, air bnb centre hasn't helped us yet.
We are from "Downunder", Kerikeri, Bay of Islands , New Zealand.
We are having trouble with Instant Book, we have had this turned on for over a year and we have never had any issues we wish to continue as we are confident we can manage our time management, and of course hopefully more bookings.
We have our requirements for instant as just using the stand requirements with Air Bnb.
We can't seem to see our listing, if we use a filter for search by instant book we don't appear.
We had a guest who instantly booked with us last week with no problem, he decided to return back to us to stay, but he had to request to book?
Our list is Kerikeri New Zealand, Town & Country Private Guest Suite
Would you be able to offer any assistance, Thank you so very much
Kindest Regards Jason and Fleur
@Leib, The trips tab as @Marit Anne suggests is what you would do in a web browser (Chrome, Firefox, etc.). The smartphone and tablet airbnb apps are different. On my recently downloaded android airbnb app, click on the 'PROFILE' icon in the lower right corner. One of the options that will pop up is a toggle between 'Hosting' and 'Traveling'. The apps operate in one of two modes, hosting or traveling. The profile is the same.
