How do I earn travel credit from referring a friend to Airbnb?
Inviting people to Airbnb can earn you—and the people you invite—travel credit to use toward a new reservation.
Invite friends to use Airbnb
To begin earning credit, visit the invitation page and send the link to your friends. When a friend clicks the link, they will receive credit that will automatically apply towards their first reservation with Airbnb. The credit will show up automatically on the checkout page of any qualifying reservation.
When your friend completes their first qualifying reservation, you'll earn travel credit to use for your own Airbnb reservations. You'll receive your travel credit after the departure date of your friend's trip.
For each person you refer, there are two opportunities to earn travel credit. You earn credit when your friend completes a qualifying reservation as a guest and also when they complete a qualifying reservation as a host. You can earn up to $5,000 USD in travel credit overall.
To see all of your current referral details, click Invite Friends on your Airbnb Dashboard. Terms apply.
A qualifying reservation usually has a total value of $75 USD or more, excluding guest fees and any taxes. These amounts may vary during promotional periods.
Use your travel credit
Your available travel credits automatically appear as a coupon on the checkout page of your reservation request. If the travel credits aren't automatically added, it means the reservation doesn’t qualify.
Travel credits can't apply to a trip that has already been paid for, but they will be available and applied to your next qualifying reservation. They expire one year from the date they're issued and can only be used once. They’re also not reusable if you cancel a reservation where the credits were applied.
