What could you be doing wrong at your airbnb? and Do you need a airbnb manager?

W

It’s November in London and my airbnb has been busy every day since about August. It had been quiet before that for the best part of 1.5 years because of the pandemic. I’m so happy my airbnb is back the way it used to be – full every day. The other bright spot is that prices have risen (only slightly) so i’m getting a little bit more extra every night per room – only a few extra pounds but this is the first time prices had really risen since I first started doing airbnb in 2004!

Get paid twice for your listing and how to automate your Airbnb business

I recently changed my Airbnb cancellation policy from Flexible: Full refund 1 day prior to arrival, except fees to Moderate: Full refund 5 days prior to arrival, except fees. The reasons for doing this are that I did have a few cancellations over the summer and although I had managed to refill most of the empty spaces in my calendar I started to think there is a real risk of a last minute cancellation causing significant financial loss to me so I decided to change to Moderate. This at least would give me 5 days to refill the space. What I didn’t think of was the possibility of selling the...
