Airbnb Lets You Pay Less Up Front

Airbnb now lets users pay less up front for bookings We show you how you pay less up front for pricier Airbnb bookings

If you're a frequent user of Airbnb, there's some good news for you. The home-sharing company is now offering "Pay Less Up Front", a payment process that defers half of the cost of a stay until the traveler's check-in date draws closer.

"We understand it can be hard to pay for all of your holiday upfront, especially in January when the purse-strings have to be held particularly tight".

It follows Airbnb's decision to roll out a global Split Payments tool previous year, which allows people to divvy up the cost of their booking and pay individually over a 72 hour period in which the home is held for them.

Airbnb is introducing a new way for users to pay for rentals, letting them reserve accommodation by paying 50 percent upfront and 50 percent before they arrive.

Nationals sign Howie Kendrick to two-year, $7 million deal
Murphy had knee surgery in October and wasn't sure of his return when he spoke to the media at Nationals Winterfest in December. Following the 2014 season, he was traded to the Dodgers, where he spent two years before being dealt to Philadelphia.

The Pay Less Up Front initiative means users only need to pay 50 per cent of the cost of their stay when booking, where they previously had to pay the full amount.

Many would-be travellers get back to work in January and nearly immediately want to book that next holiday, but find that January is the month in which they can least afford to do so.

Since cancellation policies vary per host on the platform, the date of the final payment will be different for every booking.

This isn't the first new payment feature Airbnb has introduced lately. The digital platform features a chat facility to connect with the travel director and fellow travellers, a travel journal, a place to share plans and photos, e-documentation storage, easy hotel check-in, and the ability to send ahead dietary requirements to the next hotel. Your guests must have an Airbnb account to use this feature.
