Qualification is automatically evaluated based on information a host provides about their listing, the reviews for that listing, the host’s prior cancellation history for confirmed reservations, and the responsiveness of the host to prior reservation requests. In evaluating the host’s responsiveness, Airbnb will consider data from the preceding 12 months.
Listings are evaluated for business travel readiness on a rolling basis. There is no application process to be considered for eligibility. Eligibility is automatically evaluated on a regular schedule determined by Airbnb. You and your listing need to continue to qualify after the initial evaluation in order to maintain Business Travel Ready status.
