We learn at a very young age about the painful sting of rejection. It starts with dodgeball and birthday parties and gets more real as life progresses toward college, and a career, and the mother of them all -- dating! Also, not qualifying for a mortgage, that can hurt, too. Rarely is there ever a way to dodge this harsh reality.
While rejection undoubtedly runs rampant on Airbnb (and not just from the hosts), there are several tactics to almost guarantee you don’t get dubbed a “persona non grata” next time you’re booking a getaway. And we talked to hosts from all over the world -- Paris, Australia, Berlin, Maryland, Florida, California, New York City, and beyond! -- to find out what those tactics were.
Behold, your definitive list of DOs & DON’Ts to avoiding rejection on Airbnb. Because, remember: “It’s not you, it’s them.” Unless, of course, it really is you.
