What methods of payment does Airbnb accept?

We support different payment methods, which depend on the country your payment account is located in. So in addition to major credit and debit cards, certain payment options are available in specific countries or on specific platforms (like the iOS app or Android app).

We'll show you which payment methods are available to you on the checkout page, before you submit a reservation request. After you select your country, all of your payment details will be shown.

Offline or cash payments are a violation of our Terms of Service, and can result in removal from Airbnb. We prohibit off-site payments because paying outside of Airbnb makes it harder for us to protect your information and puts you at a greater risk of fraud and other security issues.
