26 Jan Airbnb Requirements | Who Can Book and Host On Airbnb – Passive Airbnb
Well, do you know if you can host on Airbnb? What are the requirements? How do you host on Airbnb? I am sure that you have lots of questions. In this post, my goal is to tell you about the requirements to book as a guest as well as the requirement to host on Airbnb.
Airbnb Requirements: Who Can book on Airbnb?
Airbnb’s requirements for guests include:
- Full name
- Email address
- Confirmed phone number
- Profile photo
- Introductory message
- Agreement to house rules
- Payment information
Trust and Verification
The Airbnb community relies heavily on trust. They require everyone to go through their verification process. This process includes phone, email, social profile, and in some cases, a photo-ID. Some hosts require extra requirements like asking guests to upload their identification.
Airbnb just wants to be a trustworthy middleman between host and guest communication – they want to be true in their word that John Doe really is John Doe. And aren’t you thankful for that? If you have children in your household, then requiring an official ID is something you need to consider.
It is important to note that Airbnb will never share your real email address with your host. A forwarding email address is provided on your behalf from Airbnb. Airbnb takes safety really seriously.

It’s free to sign up and easy to list your space. The listings available on the site are as diverse as the hosts who list them. Some hosts start small and post airbeds in their apartments. Other hosts start by entire houses or rooms in bed-and-breakfasts.
I’ve seen hosts even offer tree houses in the woods, boats on the water, or enchanted castles. As you can see, the options are literally limitless.
A recent creative post that I saw was when a host offered up their backyard for hikers to camp in. That is creative!
I’ll be writing another blog on becoming a Superhost. Stay tuned for that!
