How to Contact Airbnb Support

Wondering how you can contact Airbnb customer service and get your host issue resolved quickly? Here is a complete list of Airbnb support communication details for you to get the help you need, when you need it.

Whether your listing is in San Francisco, Austin, or Miami, it’ highly likely that you’ll face a problem at least once in your host career that you’ll need to contact Airbnb to resolve. When that happens, reaching out to Airbnb customer care directly is the best and most effective option. You can reach Airbnb in a number of ways, the direct of most being using one of the phone numbers below.

To avoid any confusion, we’ve created a comprehensive Airbnb customer service guide. This guide is an info sheet that holds all the relevant information on how you can touch base with Airbnb.

Contact Airbnb Via Their Website

The primary way to communicate with Airbnb Support is via their website to resolve customer service issues.

After logging in on the site, go to the Help Center, scroll down, and click the ‘Contact Us’ button.

The prompt will ask you to describe your issue in a few sentences so your message can be forwarded to the correct department. A live chat option enables you to communicate with customer service representatives in real-time.

Contact Airbnb Via By Phone

Customers and guests frequently seek direct phone lines whenever they encounter an issue. Calling Airbnb via phone is likely to resolve the problem faster than going the digital route. Company inboxes are always brimming with requests and inquiries, so email isn’t always the quickest way to reach out.

As of Q2 2023, Airbnb has 20 offices on five continents, each of which has a dedicated phone number. When contacting Airbnb’s customer service, you should always use a verified phone number. However, it’s harder than you might think to find the right Airbnb phone number.

Here are some tips for communicating with a customer service rep:

  • Before calling, check the rates with your carrier for a long-distance call.
  • Take notes during the call. If you need to talk to customer service more than once, you won’t be connected with the same agent. For this reason, notes can be a true lifesaver.
  • If your country doesn’t have a dedicated customer support number, we recommend calling the one closest to your area.

The best toll-free customer support phone number for US residents is 1-855-424-7262. It is also available 24 hours a. Another number we recommend calling is 1-415-800-5959 (San Francisco).

Below, you’ll find the list of all international Airbnb phone numbers:

  • Australia +61 2 8520 3333
  • Brazil +55 21 3958-5800
  • Canada +1-855-424-7262
  • China +86 10 5904 5310 OR 400 890 0309 (shared-cost)
  • France +33 (0) 1 84 88 40 00
  • Germany +49 30 30 80 83 80 OR +49(0)40 609 464 444
  • Ireland +353 1 697 1831
  • South Korea +82 2 6022 2499 OR +82 808 220 230 (toll-free)
  • Spain +34 91 123 45 67
  • UK +44 203 318 1111
  • USA +1-415-800-5959 (San Francisco) OR +1-855-424-7262 (toll-free)

What Can’t Be Resolved by Phone with Airbnb?

Although contacting Airbnb via phone can be the fastest way of reaching customer service, some things can’t be done over the phone. But let’s talk about what we can resolve via phone first:

  • Airbnb booking inquiries/cancelling a reservation
  • Reporting issues with bookings
  • Reservations booked directly through the host (private bookings are prohibited on Airbnb)
  • Requesting a full or partial refund
  • Filing complaints
  • Assisting hosts who are having trouble with guests
  • Inquiries about credit or debit charges

Some issues or steps need more communication. Namely, you might need to scan or upload certain documents for claims or receiving funds.

Customer service won’t be able to help if a conflict between guests and hosts isn’t in breach of any Airbnb rules or regulations. That means they won’t be able to issue a refund or other forms of compensation. Instead, guests and hosts must find a solution independently without involving Airbnb. This presents hosts with a problem – they must dialogue with the guests directly.

Contact Airbnb Via Email

Some hosts prefer communicating with customer service through emails. This option is especially attractive because you don’t have to pay a service fee. While you might have to wait longer to receive a response, at least you won’t have to think about whether you’re going to be charged a long-distance call fee. Besides, a lot of managers have their business emails, and they search for contacts with the help of an email finder to get in touch as fast as possible with Airbnb Support members.

You can reach out to the company at any of the three addresses mentioned below:

Also, you can communicate with Aisling Hassell, Global Head of Customer Experience, at

Lastly, if you ever need to get in touch with the CEO of Airbnb, Brian Chesky, directly, you can use the following email address:

Bear in mind that the company usually responds to emails within a couple of days. If your inquiry is urgent, it might be better to communicate with them via phone.

Contact Airbnb Via Social Media

In recent years, thanks to the ever-rising popularity of social media networks, many companies have started using them to communicate with customers actively. The most common channels include Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Here are the ones managed by Airbnb:

Due to high engagement, Airbnb is particularly active on If you require a semi-urgent company response, then contacting them through Twitter is your best bet. Here’s how to do it:

  1. Log into your account
  2. Look for the @airbnbhelp handle in the search box
  3. Open the blue drop-down menu, which is next to the Follow button
  4. Choose the ‘Send a Direct Message’ option
  5. Enter your questions/concerns, and you should hear back within 10-15 minutes
  6. Provide additional personal information if necessary.

When Should I Reach Out to Airbnb Customer Service?

As an Airbnb host, you should chat with Airbnb when you want to resolve a dispute with a guest, have a security concern, are experiencing technical issues, or anything else related to your hosting experience.

Booking Inquiries

If you’re a new host and receive your first booking, you may want to contact Airbnb customer service to clarify the booking process, guest requirements, service fees, charging a security deposit, and so on.

Reservation Modifications

Suppose a guest requests changes to their reservation, like altering dates, adjusting the number of guests, or making any other modifications. In that case, you can contact Airbnb support to ensure the changes are appropriately handled and documented.

Cancellations & Refunds

Sometimes, guests cancel and ask for a refund. Depending on your cancellation policy, you may have to return their booking value, and occasionally, this process can be complex. You can contact Airbnb if you’re having trouble refunding your guest via your Airbnb account.

Guest Issues

When you have a dispute with a guest, the best thing to do is to take it to Airbnb directly. You can find general info on disputes via the Airbnb website, along with reservation queries, account issues, booking questions, and payment details. Airbnb will aim to resolve as many guest/host disputes as quickly as possible as a company.

Payment Issues

A host can communicate with Airbnb if there are any outstanding payment issues. You can handle these issues directly on the website, but you may need to dig deep to find the answer. As a host, you can request payment from guests for damage caused, but you will have to ask Airbnb for help if they do not pay.
