Co-Hosts: An introduction

Co-Hosts help listing owners take care of their home and guests. They’re often a family member, neighbour, trusted friend or someone the Host has hired to help with the listing. Hosts can always contact Co-Hosts by phone or email.

What is a Co-Host?

If you’re a primary Host, you can add a team – including a Co-Host or hosting team – to your listing for some extra help. These teammates are often trusted friends, partners or someone from a professional team who can help you do things like manage your listing, respond to enquiries or message booked guests so you can focus on other things.

The difference between Co-Hosts and hosting teams

There are two ways to get support hosting on Airbnb: Hosting teams and Co-Hosts.

What Co-Hosts can do

Co-Hosts can support Hosts in different ways, so permissions can be set up for each Co-Host to choose what they can access and manage on your listing.

Experienced Co-Hosts

Management tools for Co-Hosts

As a Co-Host, you’ll need the listing owner to add you to their listing. Hosts and Co-Hosts need to communicate well and be clear about:

  • Hosting responsibilities: Who does what
  • Earnings: How much of the reservation income goes to the Co-Host
  • Expenses: How the Co-Host will be reimbursed

How do ratings and reviews work for Co-Hosts?

When guests leave a review after their trip, it will show up on the listing page as well as the profile page for the listing admin.
