Pet fees are one of Airbnb's "additional fees" that you can add to your account or a specific listing in Guesty.

  1. First, you'll need to sync this fee with Airbnb.
  2. Then, you can add the fee to your entire Guesty account or to a listing's additional fees and charges


In order to update the listing on Airbnb to not allow pets, you must disable the pet fee sync settings in Guesty (turn the Are pets allowed? off in the "House rules" editing page.


Syncing a pet fee with Airbnb


Airbnb doesn't require a pet fee for service animals.

Follow the guidelines below to properly sync your Pet Fee with Airbnb.

  • The listing must be pet-friendly.
    Edit the listing's house rules, and make sure to turn on the "are pets allowed" toggle and mark the "charges may apply" checkbox.
  • The pet fee will sync with Airbnb—meaning it will only be applied to the reservation when a guest marks that they are bringing a pet on Airbnb.
  • The fee must be lower than the listing's base price.
  • The fixed-rate option (which will be charged "per stay") is the only rate that will sync between Guesty and Airbnb.
