    How do I use Instant Book?

    If your listing has Instant Book turned on, guests can book immediately without having to send a reservation request to you for approval.

    The benefits of Instant Book include:

    • Convenience: Book guests without having to respond to each request.
    • More guest interest: Guests can use filters to search for listings that can be booked instantly. Instant Book listings are more popular with guests since they’re able to plan their trip more easily.
    • Search placement: Instant Book positively affects your response rate for your listing, which can improve your listing’s placement in search results.
    • Superhost Status: Instant Book can also help you reach Superhost status, which requires that you maintain a 90% response rate.

    If you have Instant Book on, it will apply to all available dates on your calendar. Guests who meet your requirements will be able to automatically book your place.
