airbnb policies
Airbnb is on your side when it comes to protecting your property from disturbances, damages, and fraud. As of 2020, Airbnb has implemented a blanket ban on all parties and events - including a ban on gatherings of over 16 people. If a guest holds a disruptive event, they risk removal of their account. The platform also carries out guest ID verification. To have their identification verified, guests must upload a picture of a governmental form of ID and take a picture of themselves on their phone. As a host, you can decide whether to require your guests to be verified or not. ‍P.s. At E of X Realty, we require all guests to go through this process!
On top of using Airbnb’s ID verification, there are a few other easy ways to check your guests are genuine and trustworthy. Check for past reviews - It’s worth checking out reviews and references left by other hosts on a potential guest’s profile. This can give you a good idea of what the guest is like, if they’re genuine, and if there have been any issues before!Check their profile - You can also check out the rest of a potential guest’s profile. Have a look for verified contact information, and find out more about your guest in their ‘about me’ section. If they’re missing verified contact details, this might be a sign for concern. Ask questions - This is particularly useful if your guest is using Airbnb for the first time, and hasn’t received any reviews yet. If you want to know a little bit more about your guest, feel free to ask why they’re visiting or who they’re visiting with.

FAQs
There are three key steps to our guest vetting process. Firstly, we always use official ID verification software to check that your guests are genuine. If the booking is x through Airbnb, this is done through Airbnb’s own verification process. If the booking is through another platform, we use a third-party verification platform - giving you peace of mind (and more bookings!) when listing on multiple platforms.
Secondly, we use an application programming interface when taking payments from guests, allowing us to automatically identify any fraudulent activity.
‍And lastly, our expert team is trained in identifying potential red flags. Our pros manually cross-reference guest details to triple-check a potential guest is genuine before accepting a booking.
