Isn't it weird that you cannot sort listing by price?
I think ir's very basic and this is the first site that I saw that doesn't have this option.
Of course other sorting options such as reviews, distance from request place etc could be nice but price is like I mention is basic.
What do you think?
@Jonathan723 The reason why airbnb doesn't show prices before you add dates is because they can't. The prices varies a lot from day to day and week to week - high season/low season. When you add dates you will be presented for those listings that are available. With no dates you will see every listing in an area also those who haven't been active for 2 years. Most hosts do not accept long-term guests. You can when you have added dates choose to filter your search with setting a maximum price. If you have an idea of the dates you need a place try an add 30 days into the filter. That way you will be presented for those hosts that allow or offer longer stays. I for instance have a maximum of 4 days so you wouldn't see mine.
I've run into this **bleep** numerous times over the years. It is maddening that we can't sort by price, especially when there are numerous listings in the area. At least they are now showing the true total price on the search screen so I can try to filter that way but they only put x number of listings per page so I constantly have to look through each **bleep** page. Is there not some web addon or script that we can use to get this functionality now?
Thanks for trying to help but that's not what people want to do. You can only set nightly price which doesn't take into account any additional fees. If I want to spend $1000 max out the door for my 5 night trip and I set nightly price limit to $200, airbnb will still show me units that are $200 a night plus $200 cleaning fee plus $150 service fee etc... Which is above my $1k total. By not providing a sort by total, I'm unable to easily avoid seeing these units in favor of one's I'll actually book.
@Bryan297 In Europe everything is included when you enter dates, number of guests. It will show the daily price incl. every fee next to the total amount incl. every fee. That makes it very easy to find listings within a certain price range.
Yes, it will show the total price on the search results, but if you are in a hot tourist area, like some of the ski towns here in the States, it could result in 7 pages of results. It would be nice if 1. I didn't even have to see the options I am NOT going to book anyway due to the price or 2. At least letting me sort by price so I can see the ones relevant to what I want first and ignore the rest. This is much less of an issue when you only have like 5 search results.
I CAN'T BELIEVE THEY STILL HAVE NOT UPDATED THIS -EXPECTED- FEATURE. Airbnb, please give your customers a simple sort by price...it's kind of ridiculous that you don't. Seriously, stop screwing us over.
this is the third time over the last to years that I try to book on airbnb, once I remember that this (sort by price) feature is not available I end up booking at HOTELS.COM
As a consumer it frustrates me every time I visit this site that I dont have a sort by price button like nearly every other site for nearly everything else in the world.
I realise that being able to give priority listing rewards to product suppliers is more important to the company than consumer convenience.
That sort of marketing style can be frustrating for many consumers tho. Liken the ploys used for buying real estate or a car, or sometimes even trying to find stuff in some supermarkets.
Yes I see the price range tag which can nearly get there in a roundabout way - but that still doesnt provide what I would like and am used to elsewhere.
It is a pity the company cant do something else to reward suppliers that wont frustrate consumers as much.
I will continue to use airbnb but I thought I would add my bit to this conversation as this has urked me for ages (as I see it has to some other consumers).
