How to Start Co-Hosting on Airbnb

Starting co-hosting on Airbnb can be a great way to generate extra income. But, before you get started there are some important things that you should know first. In this blog post we will cover: what is co-hosting and how do I become one; what does it mean to manage an Airbnb property and why would someone want to do so; the steps for preparing your Airbnb listing for guests; and the benefits of becoming a successful Airbnb co-host.

What is Co-Hosting and How do I Become One?

Before becoming a co-host, it's important to know what that actually means. Airbnb defines someone who is hosting on behalf of the owner as a "co-host." On Airbnb, hosts are responsible for the process from beginning to end - including staying in contact with the guests upon booking, during their stay and providing them with information on the area. Co-hosts are responsible for being the point of contact from start to finish - including going through check in procedures, scheduling cleaners, providing quality assurance, answering questions about the property or city as needed and staying in touch until they depart.
