Adding an extra guest fee

Your place is set up to accommodate a certain number of guests, but maybe you’re OK with adding more if it brings in a little extra cash. Perhaps you’ve got an air mattress in the closet and a few extra essentials on hand—why not?

You can add a fee for each guest you’re willing to put up beyond your normal limit. So, if the number of guests you’ve set under Listing basics is 4, you can charge extra for the 5th and 6th guests and so on up to your comfort level.

To add an extra guest fee to your listing:

  1. Go to Listings and select the listing you want
  2. Click Pricing and Availability and go to Fees
  3. Next to Extra Guest Fee, click Edit
  4. Enter the amount per extra guest
  5. Click Save

Your new fee only applies to future reservations. If you want to add an extra guest fee to a confirmed reservation, you’ll need to send your guest a trip change to adjust the price.
