Coupon Codes for Airbnb

Last updated: January 14, 2016 - 6:32pm EST

Looking for an even better deal on renting a property to stay at while out of town with Airbnb? There are two major ways that you can save money on Airbnb bookings: travel credits and coupon codes.

Travel Credits

Travel credits are rewards that you get for inviting your friends to try Airbnb. To start this process:

  1. Go to in your web browser and log in.

  2. Move your mouse cursor over your profile picture in the top-right corner and click Invite Friends in the menu that drops down.

  3. Click inside the box labelled "Add Friends' Email Addresses" and type in the email address of a friend whom you think might be interested in using Airbnb. You can type in multiple email addresses for multiple friends; just make sure to use a comma (",") to separate each one. Then click Send.

A few things to note about getting travel credits:

  • Your friend will have to sign up for an Airbnb account and complete a stay or hosting before you receive travel credits.

  • Your friend's stay or hosting must be worth at least $75, not including cleaning fees.

  • You receive $25 in travel credits if your friend rents a property through Airbnb.

  • You receive $75 in travel credits if your friend hosts guests through Airbnb.

  • You may receive extra travel credits during certain promotional periods.

A couple of things to note about using travel credits:

  • If you have travel credits available when renting a property worth $75 or more (in subtotal), they will automatically be used to cover the cost.

  • You cannot use travel credits together with coupon codes.

Coupon Codes

Coupon codes for Airbnb can be found scattered on coupon websites and travel forums around the Internet. They usually offer you something like $25 off your first booking as a guest.

Type "airbnb coupon codes" (or something like that) into your search engine of choice, and then check out one or more of the websites or web pages that show up as results.

The coupon codes themselves shouldn’t be too hard to find once you get to a website or web page that has them,but if you don't know what to look for, they usually look something like this:

In order to use a coupon code:

  1. Find a place on Airbnb that you'd like to stay and start the booking process (see our Airbnb Search tutorial and Airbnb Booking tutorial for more information).

  2. When you get to the section where you have to input your billing information, look on the right-hand side for pricing information, and click Coupon Code.

  3. Click in the text box that appears and type in your coupon code. Then click Apply.

Do note that a coupon may not work because:

  • The booking that you are trying to use it for does not meet its terms and conditions.
  • It is for a promotion that has already expired.
  • It did not originate on Airbnb, and so they will not honour it.

If you run into any of these problems, don't panic. All that will happen is Airbnb will tell you that the code you entered isn't valid. Your best bet is to find another code and keep trying!
