As you may or not know we get a $40 (AUD) credit for referring new guests to AirBnB once they have booked a reservation greater than $100 or more. The upside is the guests also get the $40 credit as well.
My question is do we get the $40 credit if they book with us. That is, if we become the host?
Under the terms and conditions: “Neither the Airbnb User may be the host nor the guest on the Qualifying Reservation booked by the referred friend.”
My question is two fold:
Does the guest get the $40 credit if they make their first booking with us? (It appears not to me)
Do I as the host and they as the user get the credit only when the referrred guest make additional bookings but not with us?
Does anyone have much experience with this? At present, I have my own website with my booking link going straight to my listing on AirBnB. My research indicates that most AirBnB regulars go to the AirBnB webpage whereas those who haven’t experienced AirBnB will most likely come to my own webpage. As they are not AirBnB users, I want to incentivise them with the $40 credit if they book with me through AirBnB.
Sorry if I am not explaining myself too clearly but I am sure that experienced hosts will know what I am getting at.
If you are not an experienced host, then you may wish to check out the AirBnB Referral Program which can be found under your hosting homepage.
