I am hoping someone can help me. We don't provide linen at our property which is our holiday house and guests bring their own. We can offer linen through our cleaner for an additional fee which simply covers what we would pay the cleaner to hire the linen. Does anyone know how we can add this as an option to the Airbnb booking fee? Thanks!
Hi- I dont think this option exists. My suggestion is that you provide the cost in your cleaning fee. You can simply state this is what is provided in your additional notes and if they wish to bring their own linens (or beach towels) with them, you will give them a discount.
Hosts are able to add extra amenities in their listing that they charge for via the Resolution Center. We do this for additional items (we have a minibar) with instruction that alerts travelers in advance that the charges are settled through Airbnb so there are not any suprises. The process is simple and works well.
I disagree that the process is simple to add additional fees. To me it seems overly complicated to use the resolution center and often it upsets guests because they want to see what their total cost is going to be with their original search, and not have to negotiate for other fees. I have had many guests say that they feel it is misleading when they find a great price through the search, and then the reservation ends up being more because of additional fees. I think it would be very simple for Airbnb to create the opportunity to add extra fees, for example a pet fee, without all the back and forth that happens with the resolution center. Just my opinion.
Does anyone know how to add a fee for an additonal bed requirement? Our listing is set up for couples and we provide one kingsize bed. We understand that Airbnb has a way to add a fee for more than two guests and we've added that to our listing. But, if a couple needs an addional bed, how do we charge for that?
I want to do this too! I have added it into my cleaning fees for now, but my cleaning fees go straight to my cleaner! I personally pay for the linen to be laundered. We need a separate field for this or other extra expenses.
Or we should be able to split the cleaning fee.
Yes I agree, there should be an option to add additional fees, for items such as sofa beds, cots, high chairs, etc. I have a sofa bed in my cottage however it is not automatically made up with linen as only about 10% of bookings acutally require this additional bed.
