Is anyone who rents a room in their house concerned about too few bookings resulting in loss of Superhost badge/status? I will have closed off my calendar for a whole ear by the time I start hosting again mid-March- I just got second vaccination.
I’m waiting for an answer from Airbnb, but thought I’d check with the experts first ; -)
I don’t think any hosts know about Superhost going forward. Airbnb relaxed (as in eliminated) Superhost criteria for much of 2020, while preserving existing Superhost status. As far as I know, they haven’t announced any plans for what they’ll do about Superhost in 2021.
Personally I don’t particularly care if I lose that status for a few months. Superhost status and $5 gets me a crappy cup of coffee.
Oh it’s nice. I’ve been a Superhost ever since we started this 5 years ago. Guests can search on Superhost. You get a $100 travel voucher. And an electronic badge on your listing. And a special CS access phone number that may or may not still be worth what it used to.
