Hosting on Airbnb is a great way to earn some extra cash, while at the same time providing a unique local experience to travelers who want to explore your city and country.
However, when people are looking at your Airbnb listing and considering whether they will book with you, there are multiple factors that play a role in their decision. Apart from guest reviews, having the label ‘Superhost’ on your Airbnb profile definitely helps future guests pick your Airbnb.
But what exactly is a Superhost and how do you become one? Having a Superhost status is a great way to impress your guests, and increase your bookings, while at the same time growing your travel funds.
If you are hosting an Airbnb and want to boost your book rate, in this post we’ll explore the steps you can take and the requirements you need to meet in order to get the desired Superhost on your host page.

A Superhost provides exceptional guest experiences and makes holidays smoother for Airbnb users.
Apart from increasing your bookings rate, your Superhost status brings you many other perks such as a $100 travel credit, higher host referral payouts, and increased visibility of your property on the Airbnb homepage, newsletters, and emails.
Moreover, Airbnb allows users to filter their Airbnb searches to Superhosts only. Getting featured in this feature is another great benefit of being an Airbnb Superhost.
There are several criteria that you have to fulfill in order to earn the Superhost label.
To become an Airbnb Superhost, you need to meet several criteria:
Also, make sure that your guests express their satisfaction by leaving a review after their stay. Having great reviews on your page will increase travelers’ trust in the listing information you provide and provide you with more booking opportunities.
If you fulfill the requirements to become a Superhost, a badge showing your status will be automatically added to your Airbnb profile and your listing pages for as long as you continue to qualify.
If you have achieved your Superhost status, congratulations! However, remember that your work is not over.
Airbnb reevaluates your Superhost status four times a year. In order to maintain your Superhost status, you need to keep up the great work. If you start to slack off and your guest experience decreases, you will be stripped of your hard-earned Superhost reward.
So apart from the above requirements, you need to always try to top off the experience you provide. As guest expectations are changing you need to adjust to them. For example, after COVID-19 guests have started expecting higher standards of cleanliness. Make sure you fulfill your guests’ cleanliness requirements and strict cleaning and disinfection protocols.
Also, always try to add some nice touches to your rentals and service that elevate your guests’ experience and encourage them to recommend you to their friends.
