Sometimes it’s useful to direct guests to a service, like public transport for example, and it seems that sometimes a URL links to a website ok and other times a message appears along the lines of ‘link has been deleted or similar’.
Yes, but Airbnb url links will show up before bookings. I sometimes spell out a link into separate works and explain to the guest why and then leave off the .extension but tell them further in the sentence. I mostly use this for googling resources and locations.
This is true. Sometimes I get someone who is bringing cats and even though we are dog friendly we can’t accommodate cats because of allergies. There is a nice and comparable listing in my neighborhood that does accept cats so I will send the guest the link to that listing. Also, I have some friends who are super family friendly with lots of amenities and I send a link to their listings when I get people asking about bringing kids even though we’re not kid-friendly. I’ve also sent links to one of my other listings for one reason or another, so Airbnb links only prior to booking. After booking, you can send anything.
