What makes a listing Business Travel Ready?
Business Travel Ready listings must be an Entire Home/Apt and an eligible property type (house, flat, bed & breakfast, bungalow, cottage, chalet, townhouse, villa, guesthouse, entire floor, hotel, loft, or condo). The listing must be no smoking, and can’t have pets on the property.
Many business travellers are new to travelling on Airbnb, so we’ve limited Business Travel Ready listings to certain property types to help make sure guests know what to expect when they arrive.
As a part of this, and because of the potential for allergies and other sensitivities, we also ask that Business Travel Ready listings are smoke-free properties and don’t have pets living in the space while the guest is there.
If a pet lives in your space, but won’t be there during your guest’s stay we ask that you’re aware of traveler’s potential allergens and make sure your listing is cleaned before your guest’s arrival.
The listing must also have the following Business Travel Ready amenities:
- Wireless Internet
- A laptop-friendly workspace
- Self check-in (this includes a key lockbox, doorman, keypad, or smartlock)
- A smoke detector
- A carbon monoxide detector
- Essentials (toilet paper, clean towels, and fresh linens)
- An iron
- A hair dryer
Smoke and carbon monoxide detectors are an important part of making Airbnb a trusted travel option for companies. As part of our commitment to guest safety, Airbnb offers free smoke and carbon monoxide detectors for hosts: www.airbnb.co.uk/home-safety.
Reviews and response rate
Listings must have at least 3 star rated reviews before they can be eligible for Business Travel Ready status. For listings with 3 or more star rated reviews, at least 60% of both the listing’s primary reviews, and the listing’s reviews for cleanliness and accuracy must be 5 star reviews.
Hosts of Business Travel Ready listings also must have responded to 90% of booking requests within 24 hours over the last year.
Hosts of Business Travel Ready listings must provide a 7-day cancellation commitment to reservations. If a listing has a cancellation within 7 days of a confirmed check-in date, it can't be considered for Business Travel Ready for 1 year from the cancellation date.
Listings and their hosts are evaluated for business travel readiness on a rolling basis. Keep in mind that you and your listing need to continue to qualify after the initial evaluation in order to maintain Business Travel Ready status.
