What’s everyone’s skinny on this requiring Government ID thing? As a host, I can see many benefits… but as a frequent traveler… if would put me off of giving AirBnb a whirl. Just received my first booking for a place that isn’t even ready yet… my guest has no profile picture and just joined Air. I have been messaging with them and they appear real. I think I found them on facebook.
I’m renting out an entire place, so I’m not worried about sleeping at night with some nut in the house.
Smart Pricing - that thing is a crazy beast. I have a minimum of $75 set. Air was suggesting $78, then 2 days later suggests $49… my guest was booked at $80 - after my newbie discount… this booking happened AFTER they suggested I lower to $49. lol
