There are no upfront costs with AirBnB. It's free to list and then they charge hosts a 3% to 5% booking fee every time a booking is completed on their platform, depending on your cancellation policy. This fee covers the cost of processing guest payments and comes out of the host payout.

  • A 5% fee is charged to hosts that have Lodgable cancellation policies that most closely match AirBnB's strict and super strict cancellation policies.

  • A 3% fee is charged to hosts that have Lodgable cancellation policies that most closely match AirBnB's flexible and moderate cancellation policies.
