How to stop "New Reservation Confirmed" Notifications

Okay, so I recently updated the app and for months I’m now receiving notifications saying “New reservation confirmed!” when it’s really just an annoying reminder that I have guests arriving in 8 days. Yes, I know they’re coming. I reach out to every single guest and check my calendar at a minimum every day. Because I do a good job.

And why does it say “new reservation confirmed!” when it really means there’s a guest arriving soon?!

Anyways, I can’t find where on the airbnb site to stop these annoying reminders. I am in my “Notifications - Account Settings” page, and the text messages are disabled. I would like to customize my notifications to receive review reminder emails, but not reminder emails that guests are coming.

Does anyone know how to stop these annoying text/email/app notifications? I appreciate and want to keep the other reminders, but not this one.

I don’t think you can but if you find out how, I’m sure many will be interested.

I was just thinking of that today as I got my reminder to send check in information. I don’t mind since I’m getting that kind of absentmindedness that comes with age.

It seems excessive and I can only assume it’s because Airbnb has had millions of complaints from guests whose hosts didn’t do a good job.

There is no way. The same as there is no way for me to not receive them at silly o’clock in the feckin morning. For a variety of reasons, I always have my phone and audible, and when Airbnb decide to tell me, information I already have, at 4:00am I get pretty pissed.

Thankfully, most of our guests are from BDC, and in the same time zone(ish), so these days it’s rare.

I’m following this because the 8 day notices are ridiculous. The danger is that we a start to ignore them and miss the few that we would really like to see.

I get a single “reservation confirmed” notice and two “Jane Doe is coming” reminders per booking. I wonder what’s up with yours?

Maybe they can be blocked

My text notifications of “your guest has sent you a message on the Airbnb text platform” & “ you have a new reservation request” display as from +1(475)882-6572


The reminders of “a guest will be checking in” & “you need to do a review” are from a different number.

Could you block the reminder number?

You might could do the same for the email notifications

Set your phone so you don’t get any notifications say between 10 pm and 9 am except from key numbers which you identify.
