How to Make Money With Airbnb

In this article you will find out how to make money with Airbnb

Airbnb is a sharing platform that connects people who want to make unused spaces available (such as a room in an apartment, an entire house)

with people who wish to rent them for short periods, offering an alternative and very competitive service to traditional hotels

the Airbnb platform gives you access to accommodation to rent all over the world at advantageous prices and with many different features

the accommodations are described by the owners and each lodging has its own characteristic and uniqueness

a totally different style from that of a hotel where the rooms are very similar and lack personality


the owners generally decorate the apartments with typical and traditional characteristics of the place and this makes the stay even more pleasant

Airbnb has very affordable accommodation prices and in general the price of a stay in an Airbnb costs less than the price of a standard hotel.

Airbnb gives you the possibility to contact the owner of the accommodation to make visits, to ask for information and to book the stay

the owner of the accommodation has the possibility to choose his host (guests)

Once the booking is confirmed, we will have to pay a deposit of 30% of the total price and once the owner has confirmed the arrival, the booking is final.

on Airbnb you have the choice between two types of rentals:

  • Rent a room
  • Rent an apartment

What is the difference between renting a room and renting an apartment?

Renting a room means renting a single room in an apartment or house

This is the easiest way to make money on Airbnb and can be done by anyone, even if they don’t have their own apartment.

Renting a room is the cheapest way to rent on the platform

in this type of rental the owner and the host (guest) share the apartment or only certain areas of the apartment (for example kitchen, living room)

Renting an apartment means renting the entire apartment to other people

This is a more advanced way to make money on Airbnb and requires you to have your own apartment

the costs in this case are much higher, both in terms of income for the owner and in terms of expenditure for the host

What’s the best way to make money on Airbnb?

There is no better way to make money with Airbnb, there are so many factors that vary from person to person

earning with Airbnb depends on several factors, such as apartment availability, location and customer demand

If you are an owner , the best way to make money on Airbnb is to rent an apartment

Renting an apartment allows you to earn more money than renting a room

and also by renting an apartment you have the possibility to accommodate more guests and therefore to earn more

one of the great benefits of Airbnb is that since bookings are for a short time you don’t have defaulting tenants,

unlike what can happen for long-term rentals, which allows you to make your property very profitable

this is because your guests are mainly tourists on vacation

if you are not the owner of the property

another way to make money with Airbnb is subletting

what is sublease?

The sublease is a particular form of lease that is characterized by being a contract stipulated between two parties, the sub-lessor (You) and the sub-lessee

the sub-tenant is obliged to pay the monthly rent to the original tenant, but it is he who exercises the right of use on the property given in sublease

this way of earning through Airbnb is relatively new and is becoming more and more popular in recent years

What is Airbnb’s commission rate?

Airbnb takes a 3% commission for each booking made by guests. However, if the apartment is located in the United States, the commission is 6%.

How to choose a good host?

To choose a good host, it’s important to check the host’s reputation on Airbnb

the Airbnb platform has a rating service that allows you to rate both owners and hosts

as far as an owner is concerned the best way to choose a good host is to check the ratings they have received from previous owners

instead, for hosts, the best way to choose a good accommodation is to check the comments made by people who have stayed there

How to earn more with Airbnb?

There are several ways to earn more with Airbnb, generally the most used method is to increase the price of the apartment

and position itself as a luxury apartment for a more affluent clientele

Offering discounts to guests who book for longer periods of time is also another method used to increase earnings on Airbnb.
