    If they fit your hosting needs, additional fees can protect and grow your earnings by ensuring the cost of cleaning and unexpected expenses are covered. Successful pricing strategies strike a careful balance—covering host costs while still feeling fair and reasonable to guests. In this article, we’ll share some information for you to consider when making decisions about whether to apply additional fees to your listing.

    Cleaning fee

    Cleaning can be expensive and time-consuming, so adding a fee can cover the cost of a professional housekeeping service, or increase earnings for your own efforts. Keep in mind that the higher your cleaning fee is, the higher the level of service guests are likely to expect.

    It’s important to manage expectations on what your cleaning fee includes and what (if anything) guests will be asked to do. Would you like to ask guests to load dishes into the dishwasher, or strip the bed linens before checkout? If so, consider including cleaning costs in your nightly rate, or charge a very minimal cleaning fee and spell out in your listing what that fee includes. With a higher fee, guests will expect to be able to walk away from the space at checkout as they would at a hotel.

    To set reasonable guest expectations, aim to use the cleaning fee to cover the expense of cleaning—not to make additional money. If you’re new to hosting, consider waiting to add a cleaning fee until you have a few great reviews to attract bookings.

    Extra guest fees

    An extra guest fee lets you charge more when a reservation includes more guests. So if you have a one-bedroom apartment with a double bed, your expected occupancy might be two people. But if you have a pull-out couch in the living room, you might allow up to four guests, with an extra guest fee for each of the other two people.

    Not all hosts choose to add this fee, but it can be a way of covering the costs associated with higher occupancy, like increased usage of utilities and supplies like toilet paper and soap, or additional cleanup. Things to consider when adding an extra guest fee:

    • Decide how many people can comfortably fit in your space. Guests may be disappointed to discover that your space is smaller than expected if your settings suggest you can accommodate extra people.
    • Start small. Hosts Dave and Deb from Edmonton, Canada, say they set a base rate for two guests and charge $10 per night for each additional guest. “My rate is low enough to attract [two] people, but if more people wish to stay, I can make more money on my listing.”

    When deciding on your additional guest fee, it’s a good idea to benchmark against similar spaces near you, or reach out to local hosting clubs to find out what the norms are in your area.

    Security deposit

    A security deposit allows you to set an amount you can claim against if there is damage by guests during their stay. Airbnb holds the guest’s payment information but does not charge the guest unless you make a damage claim. Ultimately, it’s up to you whether to add a security deposit. Things to consider when deciding whether or not to include a security deposit:

    • All hosts are covered by Airbnb’s $1,000,000 USD Host Guarantee, which protects your property in the rare event of damages—because of this, some hosts opt to skip the security deposit.
    • Hosts with premium furnishings or valuable items in their homes (for instance, large electronics) might choose to add a security deposit for additional peace of mind.
    • If you do decide to include a security deposit in your listing, it’s a good idea to benchmark against other properties in your area. Several hosts on Airbnb’s Community Center have suggested that they charge a security deposit equivalent to two nights’ stay.
