So, my guest wants to extend one night due to a flight cancellation for 2 people in their group of 5. I wanted to give them a good price for the extra night, so I did a little research and was surprised.
Airbnb says nightly rate for the extra day should be $149. This is compared to $129.50 rate that the guest paid for the first 4 days which included the weekend (so much for Smart Pricing).
Nearby mid-range hotels are around $140 (inclusive of taxes/fees), which is about right for mid-week nights this time of year.
The single-bedroom listings (shared or separate without a real kitchen) are priced the same as before the COVID cancellation madness.
The whole-house listings are all over the place. Some are not available (possibly because they’re blocking dates, etc.), some have lowered their nightly rate and increased their cleaning fees, but not priced lower in general like I expected.
