Benefits of choosing "Instant Book" settings for Airbnb listings

Once connected, you can update an Airbnb listing's booking settings in Guesty.

Change the settings from non-instant to instant booking at any time, and listings can be reserved by guests without approval needed.


The settings will apply to all available dates in the calendar.

Below are some of the benefits of choosing instant book settings.

  • Save time
    No need to communicate with guests before a reservation is made.
  • Receive a higher number of reservations
    Guests can filter search results to view listings that can be booked instantly — no waiting for a reply or confirmation.
  • Improve a listing's placement in search results by positively increasing your response rate
  • Increase the chances of becoming an Airbnb Superhost as a high response rate is required


Define requirements for guests who will be eligible to make an instant booking, such as a government-issued ID or recommendations from other hosts.
