Many people ask us what the Airbnb superhost benefits are. Here's a complete overview of the Airbnb superhost benefits and superhost requirements, updated September 2019.

Airbnb launched their Superhost program in 2016 to reward their most devoted hosts with a special VIP status. The creation of the Airbnb Superhost program was a response to the lack of consistent experiences on the ‘alternative lodging’ platform.

Airbnb superhost benefits:

Better Visibility in search.

The Airbnb superhost benefits includes priority placement and visibility in Airbnb search, which means superhost listings will appear first and higher when potenteal guests are searching for a place like yours. 

Guests are also able to filter out their search results to only show Superhost accommodations.

Superhost badge

Superhosts will also get an exclusive badge, which makes their listings stand out in search. 

Airbnb Coupon 

If a host keeps his / her superhost status for one year, they will get a $100 coupon to spend on any Airbnb listing or experience. 

Airbnb events and product trials

Being a Superhost also give you the chance to join Airbnb’s exclusive events and product trials. 

Better earnings

Furthermore, superhosts earn more than other hosts. In average,  Airbnb superhosts earn up to 22% more than other hosts

 

What are the Airbnb superhost requirements? 

The four criteria that hosts must meet to become an Airbnb Superhost are:
 
  • Host a minimum of 10 stays in a year
  • Respond to guests quickly and maintain a 90% response rate or higher
  • Have at least 80% 5-star reviews. Your listings overall rating must be 4.8 or higher.
