Airbnb guests have different needs. More often than not, they may want to come later or leave earlier. It can create problems if your property is booked on back to back nights because you always need to allow enough time for cleaning.
It’s up to you to decide whether you should accept such guests’ requests or not. But it’s an easy way to provide your guests with extra value if your standard check-in and check-out times don’t fit well into their travel schedule.
If you can accommodate early check-ins and late check-outs, why not make your Airbnb guests happy? This approach will help you get more 5-star reviews and maximize your income. Besides, you can automate everything if you take advantage of a useful Smartbnb feature.
How does it work?
You can set up Smartbnb to accept or deny early check-in and late check-out requests automatically based on your calendar availability.
Moreover, you can offer your guests the opportunity to book the night before check-in or after the check-out to encourage them to ask you for an early check-in or late check-out.
All you have to do is to set custom codes for specific conditions and create rules for answering early check-in and late check-out questions. The system will select the relevant answer to your guest’s request automatically based on your calendar.
