What is a custom base rate?

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:

  1. The host offers a custom base rate
  2. The guest has two days to review the offer
  3. If they accept, the booking is confirmed and the guest is charged in full
  4. If they decline or the offer expires, the host can make another offer

Please keep in mind that we charge guests a processing fee on all transactions.  Make sure you are familiar with our cancellation policy and payment process

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 display on the listing page at checkout.
