Airbnb Guest Messaging Templates | FREE Templates

Juggling guest messages can be a nightmare especially for busy hosts managing multiple properties. From guest inquiries to booking confirmations, it can take a lot to keep everyone on the same page.

First impressions matter and crafting some handy Airbnb message templates can ensure your guests feel welcome right from the jump, all while saving you precious time. 

The Perks of Using Airbnb Messaging Templates

Free up your time

Stop spending hours typing the same messages over and over. Templates let you create pre-written messages for common situations like booking confirmations or check-in instructions. 

This gives you more time to focus on what matters most – making your guests feel welcome and comfortable.

Happy guest, happy host

Clear and informative messages help guests feel prepared and confident throughout their stay. This can lead to happier guests, better reviews and more bookings.

Effortless guest service

Templates ensure all your guests receive the same important information, delivered in a friendly and professional way. 

No more scrambling to remember details or wondering if you forgot to mention something important.

More reviews, more success

Automated "gentle nudges" can encourage guests to leave reviews after their stay. Positive reviews are gold on Airbnb and they can help you attract even more bookings.

Become a superhost

A fast response rate is key to becoming a Superhost, which unlocks special benefits and recognition on Airbnb. Templates help you maintain a high response rate without feeling overwhelmed.

Boost your search rankings

Airbnb prioritizes listings with fast response times in search results. Templates ensure you can respond quickly and stay ahead of the competition.

How to Automate Guest Messaging

This image represents how to automate guest messaging

Automate with your PMS

With Hostaway, you can easily automate all guest communication for multiple channels and listings. You can also choose to be specific to individual channels or listings.

Choose your triggers to send out each message. For example, when you receive a reservation:

  • Choose the time. Decide if you want each message sent out minutes, hours or days from receiving the trigger.

  • Lay out your message. Hostaway allows you to add images, change the font size, color and other styling options so your message looks just the way you envision it.

  • You can also use Hostaway’s free ChatGPT integration or a tool like Yada.ai or HostAI to further automate guest communication and minimize your involvement.

Schedule with Airbnb

For hosts with a single Airbnb property, Airbnb's built-in Scheduled Messages feature is a great option. Here's how it works:

  • Head to your Hosting Inbox.

  • Open the left-hand menu and select "Scheduled Messages"

  • Click "New Message" to create your template.

  • Give your template a clear name (guests won't see this).

  • Craft your message and personalize it with shortcodes (like "[Guest Name]").

  • Choose the language for your message.

  • Select the listings that will receive this message.

  • Pick the trigger for sending the message (booking confirmed, check-in or check-out).

  • Set the timing (before or after the trigger). Messages will be sent in the listing’s time zone

  • Hit "Save" and you're done!

Note that Airbnb message scheduling offers only the most basic automation.

Bon Voyage to Manual Messaging
