Booking a trip with travel credit from referrals

Our Airbnb Guest Referral Program is currently only available to guests in these select countries: China, Italy, Japan, and Mexico.

If you earned travel credit by joining Airbnb through an invite link

If you signed up for Airbnb using a referral link, your referral coupon will automatically appear on the checkout page when you pay for your first qualifying reservation.

You must have a qualifying reservation to be eligible for referral travel credit. A qualifying reservation must meet a minimum value, which does not include any taxes or fees. Because the minimum amount can vary, you should refer to the invitation email you received or go to the invitation page to see which details about which reservations are eligible.

If you earned travel credit by inviting a friend to join Airbnb

If your friend signed up for Airbnb using your referral link and completed a qualifying reservation, travel credit will be automatically added to your account. Your travel credit will appear on the checkout page when you pay for your next reservation.

Remember, you’ll get travel credit once your friend completes a qualifying trip. If your travel credit hasn’t shown up yet, it means your friend has not completed their trip yet or their reservation didn’t qualify.

Additional information

  • Travel credit expires one year from the issue date.
  • If you apply travel credit to a reservation request that’s declined or expires, it can take up to 24 hours for it to appear back in your account.
  • Your coupon can only be used once. If you use referral credit on a reservation and then cancel that reservation, it can’t be used again.
  • The total amount of referral credits applied cannot exceed 15% of the booking’s total cost.
  • The referral travel credits cannot be used together with gift credits.
