Turn off instant book for certain dates


I am wondering if there is a way with airbnb to turn off instant book just for certain dates. There are days where I need the guest to agree to some terms before I accept a booking because of my own schedule on those days etc. I’ve chosen to just block the days because if I turn it off for my listing as a whole I understand I will be buried in the search results, though I’ve never tested that.


Nope. But you can add things to your House Rules in the You Should Know section about those dates specifically. Give you the flexibility to have AirBNB cancel the reservation if they can’t agree to those terms.

I have done this on major holiday weeks, such as “We are unable to accommodate guests arrivals on the Wednesday before or Thanksgiving day before 5pm.” It has worked well for me.
