Having a co‑Host can make hosting less demanding and more rewarding. They could be a neighbour, family member, friend or someone you hire. Co-Hosts can help you manage your calendar, update your listing and respond to guests.

You told us you wanted to be able to determine what co‑Hosts can access on your listing and share payouts on your bookings, directly on Airbnb. We’re updating our co‑hosting tools to make hosting easier.

Finding the new Co-Host tab

The new Co‑Hosts tab is to the right of your Listing and Booking settings tabs on mobile. Its location on desktop hasn’t changed.

In this tab, access info about your co‑Hosts, set their permissions and set up their payouts. You can also invite co‑Hosts. To accept your invitation, they’ll need an Airbnb account.

Invite a co-Host, set their permissions and personalise your invite in the new Co-Hosts tab.

Setting permissions for co‑Hosts

When you invite a co‑Host, you’ll be asked to choose what they can access to help manage your listing. Options include:

  • Full access, to manage the calendar and listing, remove and set permissions of other co‑Hosts, message guests, and view payouts and transaction history
  • Calendar and inbox access, to manage the calendar and message guests
  • Calendar access, to view the calendar and get check-in and checkout info

All co-Hosts will appear as co-Hosts on your listing, except those with calendar access only. Co-Hosts with full access can set themselves as the primary Host on the listing, or you can choose to do so.

Any existing co-Hosts will have full access to your listing. You can change co-Hosts’ permissions at any time.

Sharing payouts with co‑Hosts on Airbnb

You can choose to share a percentage of your earnings or a fixed amount per booking. Once you set up shared payouts and your co‑Host confirms, they’ll receive payouts for bookings after guests check in. Limitations to sharing payouts apply in some locations. Get more info

These co-hosting tools are part of the Airbnb 2023 Summer Release, featuring 25 upgrades for Hosts. Opt in to Early Access to start using these new tools today.
