As a host, it is important that you trust your guests, despite whether they are renting a room in your humble abode, or renting the whole space.
After the guest’s stay at a rental, a host may choose to leave a review. It is important that hosts try their best to attain 5-star reviews, and the same goes for guests. However this is sometimes not the case and it is hard to know if the person who has inquired about your property can be trusted to care for your place.
The questions you may ask depend upon who is booking. For example, a group of 3 teenagers or young adults coming to town to party should be asked more extensive questions than a couple who is in town for tourism. There are many questions to ask an Airbnb guest with no reviews. Here are 5 options to consider.
If a guest has no reviews, this is not a time to worry or doubt them straight away. After all, at one time, every user of Airbnb, including you, had no reviews and someone gave each person a chance to prove themselves a terrific guest or host.
Instead, consider asking the questions listed above and find out more about them. With Airbnb’s live chat option, it has never been easier to communicate with them until you are comfortable enough to let the guest into your home. Who knows, you might even make a few friends while you’re at it! It is possible to care for your space while also being a welcoming host.
