We are a host that have several properties with them (more than 45). We have 5 star reviews and have always taken care of the guests. Once a fraud couple who just wanted to spend the night (as they were not getting anything else) stayed and next day just moved out without telling anyone.
After 1 day we got a mail from airbnb center and after all our feedback and good reviews they did not pay us.
they suck big time!!!
This is an absolute joke. If you want to compare with a company which really does LOOT HOSTS …try Booking.com: I have to pay 15%, plus 2.75% card commission, plus do all the admin myself. Airbnb charges me 3% and does all the admin.
You have 45 properties, you are using a service that takes away most of your headaches and you are complaining????
I am afraid i have very little sympathy.
Leave airbnb and manage these properties yourself. See how you get on, see how your MASSIVE profits decline.
I am astounded by your attitude. You are clearly very wealthy and that just isnt enough is it?
