Tips to Keep Additional Airbnb Guests at a Minimum Part 2

It's no secret that hosting guests on Airbnb can be a great way to earn some extra income. However, it's pretty important to keep in mind that too many guests can be a bit of a burden. While there are pros and cons, it might be best to keep additional Airbnb guests at a minimum of two to four.


Hosts should carefully consider whether they want to allow guests to bring additional people into the house and, if so, what the rules are for doing so. In our previous article, we discussed some tips for guests who initially want to keep additional Airbnb guests at a minimum.


In this article, let's continue that discussion and figure out how to handle the extra visitors who wish to join your Airbnb guests during their stay. Continue reading to learn more.


1) Charge a Security Deposit


The first step is to require a security deposit from your guests if they're going beyond the recommended number of guests for a listing. This will help to ensure that any damages that occur during their stay are covered.


Hosts can either require a separate security deposit for each additional person or charge a higher security deposit for guests who plan on bringing additional people. Just be sure to clarify this in the description of your listing.


2) Create Extra Airbnb Guest Fees


If you want to charge extra fees for additional guests at your Airbnb rental, you'll need to create a guest fee and add it to your listing. This can be executed by going to the "Pricing" tab of your listing and selecting "Additional Charges."


Hosts can then add any additional charges you want to charge for guests, including those for additional guests. But just like with the previous point, it's best to be transparent with the extra charges that you're going to request on your Airbnb listing.


3) Call Out to Neighbors for Help


If you're worried about noise complaints at your Airbnb rental, consider calling on your neighbors for help. This can be done by letting them learn about your rental property and the arrangement. Request them to notify you of any needs.


Having this coordination is quite a good way to keep everyone on the same page and to ensure that noise concerns are addressed quickly. Plus, it's a nice opportunity to build good relationships with your neighbors.


4) Complain the Rule-Breakers to Airbnb


If you have additional guests at your rental that are going too far, breaking the rules, and causing disturbances, hosts can contact Airbnb directly regarding the farce. Supehosts can call them or send them an email.


In your message, you need to include the guest's name, the listing address, and the dates of their stay. Provide any details regarding the issue. Airbnb will then review the information and take action accordingly.


Conclusion


By following these tips, Airbnb hosts can help ensure that your guests have a great experience and minimize the chances of having additional guests. It should certainly be a win-win for everyone involved.
