Airbnb Saved Responses| Free Templates for Greetings, Check-In and More!

Having ready to go saved responses on your Airbnb App with save you hours and hours of time. How many times have you scrambled to write a semi-grammatically correct message to a new booking? Over time as a host you will find it’s the same sequence of messages that you will need to send to guests before, during and after their stay. The trick is to have perfectly written and timed responses that you can efficiently fire off at the right moment!

There is a certain formula for the ‘perfect message’ and luckily there is no need to write it out every time. Using my templates in the saved responses tool in the Airbnb app and save yourself so much time composing the same repetitive messages on the spot. You simple copy and paste your ‘saved responses’ into the icon in messages that looks like a page. Easy!

First, let’s look at the most important messages you will need to have saved. These are your go-to every booking sequence of messages that every guest should receive to feel welcomed and know that their comfort is important to their host.

There are 4 key messages that you will need to send at the right time for every new booking:

  1. Booking Confirmation = A friendly welcome message.
  2. 48 hours before arrival= Parking and Check in Instructions.
  3. During Stay = A touch base message ‘hope you are enjoying your stay’ etc.
  4. Morning of Check-out= Check-out time reminder and thank you message.

 

Messages should always be polite and welcoming and remember to change the guests name!

Saved Response #2 Parking and Check in Instructions

Guests will need clear information on how to check-in to have a seamless check-in experience. A time saving idea is to create a Check-in Guide. Your guide can be attached to any message by clicking the key icon in your messages bar. This feature extremely helpful for hosts, especially when you have self check-in and a lockbox. A good idea is to change the lockbox code with each guest. You can message them the day before with their personal code.
