    What is Instant Book?

    For hosts

    If you have Instant Book on, it will apply to all available dates on your calendar. Guests who meet your requirements will be able to automatically book your place.

    • More guest interest: Guests can use filters to search for listings that can be booked instantly. Instant Book listings are more popular with guests since they’re able to more easily plan their trip.
    • Search placement: Instant Book positively affects your response rate for your listing, which can improve your listing’s placement in search results.
    • Superhost Status: Instant Book can also help you reach Superhost status, which requires that you maintain a 90% response rate
