Hosts can offer a one-time, base-rate price to accommodate special requests from guests, such as a non-profit discount. After a guest has sent the host a message or requested to book their space, the host can offer a custom price. When the guest accepts the offer, it becomes a confirmed booking.
To ensure a transparent booking experience, all special rates must be outlined in the About the Space section of hosts’ listings.
Here’s how it works:
- The host offers a custom base rate
- The guest has seven days to review the offer
- If they accept, the booking is confirmed and the guest is charged in full, or the difference of what was already paid if their initial request was already accepted.
- If they decline or the offer expires, the host can make another offer as long as the booking start date and time have not passed.

Hosts can also set standard variable rates for specific days of the week or times of day, such as a discounted weekday rate or weekend rate after 5pm, or rates based on number of attendees. These rates are automatically calculated and displayed on the listing page at checkout.
